The “Defense Central” website mentioned that French star Kylian Mbappe, the Paris Saint-Germain striker, will be one of the series of the summer transfer period between his team’s desire to renew his contract and Real Madrid’s desire to sign him.
According to the site, the Real Madrid administration does not expect to settle the deal early and may wait until the last days of the summer transfer period to resolve it, as happened in other deals, most notably the deal of Portuguese star Cristiano Ronaldo in the summer of 2009 from Manchester United.
The site confirmed that the Real Madrid administration told Italian coach Carlo Ancelotti that the deal is difficult and will not be resolved early; Therefore, he must work not to expect to rely on him at the beginning of the Spanish League matches, which may start at the beginning of next August, while the summer transfer period ends at the end.
Kylian Mbappe’s contract expires in the summer of 2022 and he is under strong pressure from the Paris Saint-Germain administration to renew his contract, and the Brazilian Neymar renewed his contract with the promise of his French colleague.
On the other hand, “Defense Central” confirmed that the Real Madrid administration believes that the chances of survival of captain Sergio Ramos and French defender Raphael Varane next season do not exceed 10%.
He stressed that the administration does not rule out that the two defenders will leave together or one of them this summer permanently from the team, especially Ramos, whose contract expires at the end of this month and the team withdrew an offer to renew his contract.
Media reports stated that Ramos is ready to stay, but he is waiting for a call from the Real Madrid administration to renew his offer of a one-season contract with a 10% salary reduction.
The future of Raphael Varane is still ambiguous, as the player did not renew his contract, which ends in the summer of 2022, and he wants an annual salary of up to 11 million euros, and the Real Madrid administration wants to renew his contract and proposed a salary of up to 9 million euros.
In the event that he refuses to renew his contract, the French defender team will be put on the summer transfer market in order to obtain a good amount of money instead of letting him leave for free.
In the face of the uncertain future of Real Madrid’s official defense duo, coach Carlo Ancelotti finds himself facing the task of forming a new defensive duo for the team next season.
