Real Madrid are starting to turn the page to the next chapter of the club’s history. With the arrival of young players like Jude Bellingham and Arda Guler this summer, Los Blancos are clearly looking to build the cornerstones for a very exciting future to come. However, there could be even more to come in the coming weeks and months.
With the departure of Karim Benzema, Real Madrid are left without a starting number 9. The club have brought in Joselu from Espanyol on a loan deal. However, he is viewed by the fans as more of a rotation striker, and not the man to lead the line for Los Blancos.
A number of world-class strikers have been linked with Real Madrid this summer. But there is one name that comes up every week. We are of course talking about Kylian Mbappe.
This transfer saga seems to be a never ending story that pops up every summer. However, it could finally be coming to an end very soon. As tweeted out by Fabrizio Romano, Mbappe has been left out of the Paris Saint-Germain squad for the pre-season tour in Japan.

Mbappe does not appear to be interested in extending his contract with PSG, and the French club have very few options right now. They will have to find a way to transfer him soon, if they do not want to see him leave as a free agent in the future.
Mbappe being left out of the pre-season tour clearly indicates that the Frenchman is available for a transfer. Now, it remains to be seen if that transpires or not.
The Mbappe to Real Madrid saga has been dragging on for close to three years now and some fans are understandably getting tired of the fresh rumours every day. But it could finally come to an end in this window.
