Mbappé, the desperate attempt

At this stage, Real Madrid have no plans to allow any of their first-team players to participate in this summer's Olympics in Paris, especially as Euro 2024 and the Copa América also takes place there.

Kylian Mbappé could be one of those affected by this position, provided that he inevitably ends up joining the Blancos. The 24-year-old is said to be keen to take part in the tournament, but Real Madrid would prefer him to be available for a large part of their pre-season programme.

Despite this, the French Football Federation intends to do everything possible for Mbappé to play in Paris this summer, as Philippe Diallo, its president, told Le Figaro (via MD). “Kylian expressed his desire to participate. I regret the position of Real Madrid which closes the door to a dream of many players. Our job is to try to have the best team possible. If we have to go see Florentino Perez in Madrid, we will.

The FFF does not intend to stop there

“I don't need any external pressure to imagine that Kylian's participation in the Olympic Games would be an extraordinary advantage for our team. Obviously having the best player in the world for the Games at home would be a great advantage.”

Real Madrid's stance is completely understandable, especially considering that Mbappé will also play for France at Euro 2024. The last thing Los Blancos need is for him to get injured before he even has makes his debut – provided he signs, of course.
