One of the big developments to keep an eye on over the coming 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 deal is not imminent.
PSG are determined not to let Mbappe leave for free, so they will try to tie him down to a new deal. Real Madrid are hoping for the opposite so that they can sign him as a free agent next summer.
If Mbappe signs a new contract, Real Madrid are unlikely to try to sign him.
They could opt to sign an alternative and one of the names of interest is Bayern Munich’s 18-year-old Mathys Tel.
According to media outlet Defensa Central, Real Madrid are considering a move for Tel if Mbappe does not join next summer.
The teenager is highly regarded across Europe, and particularly at his current club Bayern Munich.
Tel is currently back-up to Harry Kane at Bayern, and he could decide that Real Madrid is a better shirt for him, which could make a move possible. However, at this stage, Los Blancos’ interest is in its early stages.
