Not very often Florentino Pérez wishes are not accomplished. This summer, Real Madrid president was decided to give the supporters and the coach a new Galáctico. After Gareth Bale’s signing in 2013, Los Blancos have not signed any star. In this time, the club won three Champions League and have become one of the greatest teams ever.
However, Florentino Pérez thought it was time for a change and he saw in Kylian Mbappé the opportunity to reinforce the squad. Zinedine Zidane agreed because he has a very good relationship both with Kylian Mbappé and his father, Wilfried. The player shone with Mónaco in the last Champions League and helped his team to win the Ligue 1.
Nevertheless, Real Madrid had the problem of the BBC. With three great players in the attacking line, Kylian was not decided to arrive to Madrid because he might stay on the bench in several games. A member of the BBC had to be sold to leave some room for the French player and the chosen one was Gareth Bale.
But Gareth Bale is very comfortable in Spain. He doesn’t want to leave the club and Manchester United didn’t bid for the Welshman, so the winger stayed in the Spanish capital. At the same time, PSG gathered even more money for a huge offer for Mbappé, and the player couldn’t reject it.
Kylian said several times that his dream was playing at Real Madrid and Mónaco prefered to sell his star to a foreign team rather than to PSG, his rival in the league. It seemed that PSG had accomplished the signing of the summer when they got Neymar from FC Barcelona for €224M, setting a new record in football. But Al-Khelafi money is endless and he was able to offer Monaco €180M for the player. Real Madrid were keen to arrive to that number, but the issue was that PSG gave €15M to Mbappé per year, much more than Los Blancos offer.

Therefore, Mbappé chose PSG and Monaco were forced to sell the player to their great rival. One day before the closure of the transfer market, Al-Khelafi completed his great team with the signing of Kylian Mbappé. Now, PSG have become one of the best teams in the world.
