Zidane wants to sign Mbappé only if Real Madrid sell Gareth Bale


Real Madrid want to sign Kylian Mbappé in the current transfer market but the negotiation between Monaco and Los Blancos for the transfer of the French jewel have slowed down during last week. However, Real Madrid remain optimistic a deal can be done in a few days. There’s and impediment for Zidane in this signing. The French manager thinks that if finally Real Madrid decide to sign Mbappé, Gareth Bale must be sold because he doesn’t believe that the French player and the entire BBC are compatible.

According to Marca, there are two reasons why Mbappé is not already sign with Real Madrid. The first one is that the French side wants to sell his jewel for a very high amount of money, after seeing that PSG have recently signed Neymar for €222M. Los Blancos arrived to an principle agreement with Monaco, but the currently Ligue 1 champion wants to increase the sale of the player.

The other reason is that after the meeting Florentino Pérez and Zinedine Zidane had at USA, the French manger affirmed that he is happy with his forwards, despite Morata left the team signing for Chelsea. Zidane does not want to join four strikers of Cristiano, Bale, Benzema and Mbappé in his squad, because he consider that the managing the allocation of minutes between them would cause excessive conflict. Aso he affirmed that he wants to give minutes to players as Isco, Asensio and Ceballos, and if finally they sign the French striker, these players swill even have less minutes. Zidane thinks that the atmosphere in the squad is the most important thing if Real Madrid want to have a successful season as the last one.

If the club intends to incorporate Mbappe, a footballer with huge potential that Zidane knows well,  and fits the profile of the club, then one of the members of BBC has to leave the team. Bale’s injury problems mean that he is the chosen one and his performance since he arrived Real Madrid is not the expected one, so if Florentino wants to sign Mbappé he should also sell Bale. This sale will be good news for Mbappe, because he didn’t hide that he wanted to go to Real Madrid, but he has the only doubt about having enough minutes if he has to compete with a full BBC.
