PSG Fight with Real Madrid for Kylian Mbappé


Kylian Mbappé played for the very first time 90 minutes with his national team in the friendly game against England. The journalists and the supporters were shocked by his performance and they are already comparing him with Thierry Henry. The French press sees in Mbappé the new star for the Russian World Cup.

Real Madrid are targeting Mbappé, especially if Morata finally leaves the club. With James Rodríguez and the Spanish forward are out of the team, Los Blancos will have money and space to sign a big player. Although even if these two players leave, the BBC will still be there, so it won’t be easy for Zinedine Zidane to fit all the stars in the line-up.

Los Blancos will have many competitors to sign Mbappé. After his great season with Mónaco, winning the Ligue 1 title and qualifying for the Champions League semi-finals, many European big teams would like to sign him. However, the signing would be very expensive, around €150M, especially after the acquisition of Bernardo Silva by Manchester City for £43.6M.

Among the teams interested in the player we can see also PSG. The French giants failed to win the Ligue 1 and they need to reinforce the squad to continue with their ambition to grow up and fight for the Champions League trophy. The coach, Unai Emery, said in Spain that Mbappé is a target for PSG.

“When we speak about Mbappé, here in Spain we talk about Real Madrid and Barcelona. But I’m in Paris and I say to myself: ‘What a beautiful thing if he could represent a French team, so one of the icons of the future stays here. With all due respect to Mónaco”, the coach said, according to the newspaper As.

The Spanish coach continued with his idea: “He left Paris and he has all his family there […] What would be better for him, for France and for PSG that join everything around the player”. However, Real Madrid don’t agree with Emery and they are able to fight and get Mbappé on board for the next season.
