Real Madrid has been interested in signing Kylian Mbappe for much of the last year, and they were keen to land him last season which sparked a serious tug-of-war with PSG for his signature.
The World Cup winner eventually remained in Paris after both clubs offered identical deals for him, but his contract expires in 2025 when he would still be very much in his prime.
Some reports claim he can terminate his deal in 2024 and move to another club, which should put Madrid on alert. However, Los Blancos has reportedly turned their attention away from him.
Marca reveals Madrid does not think there is a need to sign Mbappe when they have Vinicius Junior.
The Brazilian has been in scintillating form in the last two seasons, and he is now a match-winner who can change the outcome of any game.
Madrid does not believe they need to splash the cash on another goal-scorer, at least not now, because Junior is doing well for them.
This means they have dropped their interest in Mbappe even though the Frenchman has also hit top form and seems to be at the peak of his career now.
Mbappe also dreams of playing for Madrid, and it would be interesting to see if they will return for his signature when Karim Benzema finally leaves on retires.
