Real Madrid played slightly ahead of PSG's game in Ligue 1, and the rumors grew even more. PSG played against Marseille and won 2-0 at the Orange Velodrome. The match did not witness Mbappé playing the full 90 minutes as Luis Enrique subbed off the French star in the 65th minute. Mbappé was visibly annoyed at his coach's decision, and he walked off. Mbappé and Luis Enrique's relationship seems to continue getting complicated as the French star could more likely be convinced of leaving this summer and joining Real Madrid.

What Real Madrid fans were more excited to hear is what one of their star players said after being asked about Mbappé potentially joining. Rodrygo scored a brace in Real Madrid's 2-0 against Athletic Bilbao, and after the game, he gave his thoughts on the Mbappé rumors. Rodrygo said, "Mbappé to Real? I think it’s close as it’s what journalists say, I trust you guys! But I don’t know what’s going on. If Mbappé comes, I will be benched? It will be an happy problem for the manager. I’m only focused on Real Madrid”.
