Real Madrid’s patience with the Kylian Mbappé transfer saga appears to be wearing thin. The France international reportedly wants his loyalty bonus. As a result, it could see him stay at Paris Saint-Germain for another season.
While the Spanish club will revisit the Mbappé file next summer, especially if he becomes a free agent, Real Madrid needs a striker now. Joselu is the only addition to help replace Karim Benzema.
Nonetheless, AS reported that LaLiga giants are preparing to focus on alternative options like Dusan Vlahovic. The pursuit of Mbappé has been a long-standing ambition for Real Madrid, as they eagerly seek to add the prolific forward to their ranks.

However, negotiations with PSG have proven complex and challenging, likely leading to frustration within the Real Madrid camp. Furthermore, with Juventus not having UEFA Champions League football in 2023-24, Vlahovic might be a serious target.
While Vlahovic may not possess the same star power as Mbappé, Real Madrid considers him a valuable player. So he could potentially develop into a critical figure in the team’s future should they pursue him.
The Serbian’s ability to find the back of the net and his physical attributes make him an intriguing option for Real Madrid as they explore alternative transfer possibilities.
