One of the big developments to keep an eye on over the next few months will be Kylian Mbappe’s situation at Paris Saint-Germain. The 24-year-old’s current contract expires at the end of this season, and at this stage, a renewal agreement is not close.
PSG are determined to not let Mbappe leave for free, so they will be gunning to tie him down to a new deal. Real Madrid are hoping for the opposite, so that they are able to sign him as a free agent next summer.
If Mbappe does sign a new contract, Real Madrid are unlikely to try to sign him. They may choose to sign an alternative – even with Endrick joining from Palmeiras – and one of the names taking their interest in Mathys Tel.
According to Defensa Central, Real Madrid are considering a move for Tel if Mbappe does not join next summer. The teenager is very highly-rated throughout Europe, and especially at his current club Bayern Munich.
Tel is currently backup to Harry Kane at Bayern, and he may decide that Real Madrid is a better suit for him, which could make a move possible. However, at this stage, Los Blancos’ interest is in its early stages.
