In the last week, rumours have been rife – not for the first time – about the possible arrival of Kylian Mbappé to the Real Madrid ranks.
According to AS, a man that was close to Mbappé says it’s just a matter of time.
As PSG continue to try and convince their national treasure to renew his contract with them, Los Blancos boss Zinedine Zidane has been throwing out further ‘love’ in his compatriot’s direction in order to tighten the bond even further.
Following the 2-2 draw on Tuesday evening, Vadim Vasilyev, former vice president of the young star’s previous club AS Monaco, told Le Parisien that he only sees Mbappé’s future at the LaLiga side.
“When? I don’t know,” Vasilyev answered, “but it seems Inevitable.
“The offer from Real Madrid [before the move to PSG] was very interesting for Monaco, and he [Mbappé] told me:
‘Vadim, it’s too soon for me. I haven’t played more than a year in my own country. I’m from Paris and I don’t want to leave my country right now. I want to become a great player here. Real Madrid will wait for me’.”
Mbappé will have to decide where he next signs in the coming months, with a bumper new package for a stay in his home city, or for the chance to play for Europe’s most successful ever club.
