Kylian Mbappe had recently become a hot topic within the Real Madrid camp following bombshell reports of his desire to leave Paris Saint-Germain in the upcoming January transfer window.

However, the reports soon died down as Real Madrid appear to have no interest in signing the forward. Mbappe himself subsequently trashed the rumors, doubling down on his desire to remain at PSG.

The Frenchman, though, has been a subject of criticism from no other than Zlatan Ibrahimovic lately. The former PSG superstar has lambasted the attacker for his decision to remain at PSG rather than moving Real Madrid earlier in the summer.

“Mbappe did not make the right decision for him by staying at PSG,” said Ibrahimovic (h/t CANAL+). The Swede believes Mbappe’s contract extension at PSG made him bigger than the club, which is never a good sign for any footballer.

“Mbappé stayed & put himself in a situation where he is bigger than the club (…) When you lose your discipline, you lose your identity,” he added.

There have been reports of Mbappe’s fractured relationship with the PSG board, especially after the club opted not to sign a centre-forward in the summer. The player is also reportedly not happy with some of his teammates, including Neymar.

These reasons played a key role in fuelling speculation over his future. However, with Real Madrid out of contention, as far as his signature is concerned, it appears the French international is set to remain at PSG for the foreseeable future.

Ancelotti-favourite defender will leave Real Madrid if club signs 23-year-old ace

With Kylian Mbappe’s signing now a completed objective, Real Madrid turn to what was always considered the second most critical operation of this summer – Alphonso Davies.

The Canadian full-back has been on Los Blancos’ radar for a while now, but with his contract with Bayern Munich running until 2025, his signing is seen to be a tad bit more complicated.

The Bavarians’ firm stance that they wish to persist with the speedster, needless to say, has only made the objective more complicated for Los Blancos.

No room for three

Despite Bayern Munich’s repeated advances towards Davies in recent weeks, Real Madrid are firm that they will attempt to sign the player this summer.

In light of the Canadian full-back’s possible arrival, Cadena SER reveals that Ferland Mendy will almost certainly leave Real Madrid if Davies’ signing is pulled off.

Carlo Ancelotti is clear that he has no room for three left-backs in his squad. One of Fran Garcia and Mendy must thus leave the Spanish capital in such a scenario and the Frenchman is better placed on that front.

Mendy’s current deal in Madrid runs out next year and the player has been informed that a decision over his future at the club will be taken shortly.

On track with Davies

The Spanish outlet also reveal that the Canadian speedster rejected an offer from Bayern Munich in recent hours and that his departure from the Bavarian capital is not ruled out.

Bayern Munich demand a sum of €50 million for the dynamic full-back. Real Madrid, however, have set a spending limit of €30 million for the youngster and will not exceed that sum in any scenario.

Vincent Kompany’s men thus have a critical decision to make, for allowing Davies to run down the final year on his deal may well back-fire as did the case of Kylian Mbappe with PSG.

Real Madrid, as it stands, appear to be in the driver’s seat.
