Kylian Mbappé wants to arrive to Madrid in the summer. The striker told Mónaco president, Dmitri Rybolóvlev, on Thursday that he wants to end up playing for Real Madrid. Actually, according to the newspaper MARCA, he said “or Real Madrid or nowhere” to the Mónaco boss.
Kylian Mbappé said that Real Madrid wanted to sign him since he was a youngster. Besides, Zinedine Zidane also showed a lot of interest in the striker and Mbappé thinks Madrid could be his perfect destination. But the situation is difficult, even if the player is willing to move to Madrid. Mónaco will ask for more than €100M, so Mbappé would be the most expensive player to sign for Real Madrid in their history.
Real Madrid have many competitors to sign Mbappé, although the player’s will is very clear. Especially PSG would like to tie him, as Unai Emery said recently. Mbappé’s family would like him to move to Paris because he has some family there and his brother is playing as well in the French capital.
Mbappé is a player for the present but also for the future. Real Madrid’s new project has a lot of future, with Asensio, Carvajal, Isco or Kovacic leading the team. The French player could be another important piece of this puzzle for the future.
If Cristiano Ronaldo finally leaves the club in the summer, Florentino Pérez would need to sign a new ‘Galáctico’ for the team. Now that Hazard has shut the door to Los Blancos, Mbappé could be the perfect choice for this role. At least, Real Madrid already have the ‘Yes, I want” from the player. Now, they’d need to deal with Mónaco’s president, a tough man when he negotiate the sales of the players.
