  • Rodrygo's future is in doubt due to the potential arrival of Kylian Mbappe
  • Reports suggest six elite clubs are interested in signing the Brazilian star

Real Madrid may face a slight worry about being overbooked in attacking areas next season.

Kylian Mbappe's potential arrival adds to a roster already featuring Endrick, Vinicius, Rodrygo, Arda Guler, Brahim Diaz, and possibly Joselu.

But according to El Larguero, Rodrygo reportedly has no intention of departing Los Blancos despite the impending arrivals of Mbappe and Endrick in the summer.

This contradicts Real Madrid legend Predjag Mijatovic's assertion that the Spanish giants may need to offload players like the 23-year-old Brazilian to make room for the electrifying Frenchman, per GOAL.

The Samba boy continues to express contentment in Madrid and eagerly anticipates partnering with Mbappe.

Tribuna has also reported that Real Madrid president Florentino Perez holds Rodrygo in high regard and has no intention of parting with him.

Despite experiencing a temporary slump in form, Rodrygo has managed to reach a notable milestone this season with fifteen goals, reaffirming his status as one of the world's most formidable wingers at just 23 years old.

Which clubs are interested in Rodrygo?

Despite interest from top clubs like Arsenal, Liverpool, PSG, Manchester City, and Manchester United, Rodrygo has expressed his unwavering commitment to staying at the club, per Diario AS.

With 10 goals this season, marking his best tally yet in his professional career, he showcased his leadership by scoring both goals in a crucial LaLiga match against Athletic Club, securing a 2-0 victory and maintaining Real Madrid's position at the top of the league, especially in the absence of Vini Jr due to suspension.

Mbappe dismisses Arsenal transfer reports

In another transfer news related to Mbappe, Sports Brief reported that the Frenchman had dismissed the idea of joining Arsenal when approached by a fan who suggested he should join the Gunners after leaving PSG in the summer.

While several clubs, including Premier League teams, are reportedly interested in signing him, Mbappe's next destination remains undisclosed, but it's clear that it won't be Arsenal.
