According to reports, Real Madrid is keeping a careful eye on the issue involving Presnel Kimpembe, who is dissatisfied with his current role at Paris Saint-Germain
According to Defensa Central, Real Madrid is keeping an eye on the defender Presnel Kimpembe of Paris Saint-Germain. Kimpembe is dissatisfied with his current role at the French club as a result of their unwillingness to offer him a new deal.
Kimpembe is a product of the PSG youth program and has been a stalwart in the middle of the defense for Les Parisiens for several years at this point. The 26-year-old player has racked up 220 appearances for the squad that currently holds the title of Ligue 1 champions and has 28 caps for France’s national side.
Kimpembe, who is widely regarded as one of the most dependable defenders in Europe, has established himself as a top performer at PSG for several seasons but still believes that he is being underrated there. His present agreement with the club is set to end in 2024, and he is looking for the club to offer him enhanced conditions in a new deal. However, the club has not yet complied with his request.
Will Los Blancos make the move?
This has given rise to rumours over Kimpembe’s potential future, with Chelsea reportedly contemplating a summer transfer for the centre-back to strengthen their defensive unit. However, Real Madrid has now joined the race and is said to be monitoring the player’s status at Parc des Princes.
Real Madrid already has a lineup full of defensive talent. The addition of Antonio Rudiger makes up a formidable back line for Real Madrid. Carlo Ancelotti also has Jesus Vallejo available to him, and despite interest from Espanyol, Vallejo is looking forward to continuing his career at the Santiago Bernabeu.
Real Madrid is keeping a careful eye on Kimpembe’s position even though the club does not immediately need the addition of a new defender. This is because Kimpembe is a player that Real Madrid admires. Despite this, it does not seem probable that they will contemplate making a play to acquire the French international over the next summer.
On the other hand, a transfer for Kimpembe in 2023, when he would be approaching the last year of his contract, maybe on the table as an option. Real Madrid would have already found a means to get rid of Vallejo by that point, and Nacho would be one year older and approaching the latter stages of his career by then as well. However, for the time being, Real Madrid is just keeping a careful eye on the events surrounding the player who won the FIFA World Cup in 2018, as well as the issue over his contract in Paris.
