As the summer transfer window edges closer, the anticipation of finally seeing Kylian Mbappe don the royal white jersey heightens.

Mbappe announced his decision to leave PSG as a free agent at the end of the season not too long ago, with the Frenchman also receiving a farewell ceremony at the  Parc des Princes.

While no verdict regarding his next destination has been publicized yet, all signs point toward Real Madrid as his inevitable landing spot.

Mbappe’s goals at Real Madrid

Although Mbappe’s trophy cabinet glitters with silverware, two trophies continue to elude him: the UEFA Champions League and the Ballon d’Or.

The 2018 World Cup Winner has come close to achieving these titles but has failed to realize those dreams.

As such, according to AS (h/t Madrid Zone) Kylian Mbappe’s biggest goals at Real Madrid are to win both the Champions League and Ballon d’Or once and for all.

Understandably, there is arguably no better club to realize those aspirations. Real Madrid players have won the Ballon d’Or a total of 12 times, while they boast a historic 14 Champions League titles.

In fact, these impressive numbers are likely to grow, with the Merengues facing off against Borussia Dortmund in the Champions League final and the likes of Vinicius Jr and Jude Bellingham leading the Ballon d’Or race.

As such, Mbappe, who is likely to be the centerpiece of Real Madrid’s project from next season, solidifies his chances of lifting those two trophies.

Details on Mbappe’s presentation

The administration is currently considering a period between the 3rd and 9th of June, though a final decision has not yet been made.

This will also depend on obtaining permission from Paris Saint-Germain, as Mbappe’s contract with the French club runs until June 30th.

Ultimately, a presentation is likely to take place before the Eruos commence in Germany this summer on June 14.

Spain midfielder credits Real Madrid assistant manager for career success

Spain’s European Championship campaign so far has been one filled with revelations. From young Lamine Yamal and Nico Williams on the wings to the ever-so-solid midfield, La Roja have impressed across the park and have taken the tournament by storm.

One such player who has played a critical role for the team despite not being in many pundits’ squad for the tournament is Fabian Ruiz. The PSG midfielder has been sensational for Luis de la Fuente’s men so far, scoring once and providing one assist in two games.

Despite not having any direct links with Real Madrid, the Spanish midfielder interestingly credits Davide Ancelotti for his success and AS brings the story.

A chapter in Naples

Fabian Ruiz may have never played for Los Blancos in his career so far, but he crossed paths with the Ancelottis in Naples a few years ago.

Ruiz signed for the Italian club from Real Betis in 2018 for a fee of €30 million. At the time, he was not known widely and was just seen as another routine Spanish midfielder aspiring to make it big.

As revealed by the player in a recent interview, however, it was Carlo Ancelotti’s son and Real Madrid assistant manager Davide Ancelotti who first saw the spark in him.

“Meeting him was a very important step in my career. From the beginning, he backed me, and it was not easy to pay what Napoli paid for me, a player who had not played much in La Liga with Betis.”

“If it weren’t for him, I wouldn’t be here. I have a very good relationship and friendship with him,” he added.

A special eye

Ruiz’s comments on Davide Ancelotti only make it clearer as to why Carlo Ancelotti holds his son’s advice in high regard. It is, after all, a testament to the tactician’s keen eye for special talent.

As revealed earlier this year, it was the manager’s son who suggested Joselu’s substitution against Bayern Munich in the UEFA Champions League semifinals when the team was on the brink of elimination.

What happened next was history as the veteran scored twice within minutes to turn the game around and send the Bavarians crashing out.

Davide has been rumoured to be interested in walking his own path soon as a specialist coach, but as it stands, will continue working under his father for at least one more year at Real Madrid.
