Florentino Pérez is searching for his new Galáctico this summer and now the player with more odds to land at Santiago Bernabéu is Kylian Mbappé. The French striker played a great first leg in the semi-finals of the Champions League against Juventus despite the defeat and Los Blancos think he’s the perfect player to join the squad.
The Spanish newspaper Marca, the most popular in Spain, published on Friday in their front page that Mbappé agreed to join Real Madrid and he’ll do the effort to put some pressure on Mónaco bosses to sign with the Spanish giants.
Mbappè’s main reason is Zinedine Zidane. Zizou tried to sign him some years ago to play with the youngsters of Real Madrid but the deal couldn’t be sealed. However, Zidane’s admiration for the striker continues and he’s the preferred one by the manager. Mbappé knows it and he thinks he can play at his best with Zizou on the bench. The other reason is the way Los Blancos approached the player, talking with his family and showing a very interesting plan.
Real Madrid have a lot of competitors in the race to sign Mbappé. The main one is Manchester United, who already offered €100M to get him on board but Monaco rejected the bid. PSG are also interested in the French striker, but they are about to sign Aubameyang, one of the options Los Blancos had to reinforce the attacking line. With the bid rejected coming from Manchester, Florentino knows that he would need to spend a record transfer fee if Real Madrid want to tie Mbappé.
According to the Spanish press, the French striker has overtaken Eden Hazard in the race to sign a Galáctico. If Florentino Pérez finally decides to spend a lot of money to sign a player, some star should leave the club. Gareth Bale and his numerous injuries should be the first one to leave, but Karim Benzema or James Rodríguez are also in the departure line. Would you sign Mbappé this summer?
