The Operation Kylian Mbappé is already on. Los Blancos have their target in the French star and they will put all the efforts in getting him the next summer. It won’t be easy but Florentino Pérez has already shown his ability on getting top players like Luis Figo, Ronaldo Nazario or Zinedine Zidane. These Galácticos were also impossible to sign until Florentino tried and brought him to Madrid. Will he be able to do the same with Kylian Mbappé.
According to the newspaper France Football, Real Madrid have already started the operation to get Mbappé. The French paper has even stated a price for the player: €280M. This is the price Real Madrid will pay for the striker but we have to add the salary of the player, one of the highest paid men in the world of football.
FC Barcelona know how is dealing with Al-Khelaifi. The Blaugranas tried to sign Marco Verratti and Adrien Rabiot without success in the last transfer windows, whereas PSG were able to get Neymar. The French club doesn’t need money because they have all the resources available, so Florentino has to think in another tactics.
The first thing is convincing the player. Kylian Mbappé suffered the knock-out of his team again in the Champions League Last 16 Round. Los Blancos have to make an effort of explaining the new and ambitious project with Zinedine Zidane. Playing in La Liga is not the same as the Ligue 1, and Mbappé will have more options to win individual prizes like the Golden Ball.
Apart from the Champions League and the recognition of the Spanish league, Florentino Pérez will use the Zinedine Zidane card. The manager is the best way to convince Galácticos to come to the Spanish capital because most of them dream about the World Cup winner. A telephone call made by Zinedine Zidane would ease the situation.
However, even if France Football is already speaking about this operation, we know that this would be very complicated. Los Blancos have also some priorities to fulfill like new defenders, another midfielder and some attacking players like Eden Hazard. Nonetheless, the cherry on the cake would be Mbappé.
