Former Real Madrid president Ramon Calderon believes no team can afford the PSG star in this market.
The French forward has been strongly linked with Zinedine Zidane at the Santiago Bernabeu for a while now, more like in this transfer window.
Mbappe has two years left on his contract and the French club would be expecting an astronomical fee for their player which most clubs in Europe won’t be able to afford.
Back in 2017, Florentino Perez tried to sign the 19-year old who has been a long admirer of the club and former player Cristiano Ronaldo. Signing great players in their prime has always been the Real Madrid way, the Galactico way.
“No doubt Mbappe is a player who everyone would like to sign. He has great potential, and he is very young,” he told Stats Perform News.
“He reminds me a lot of Ronaldo, the Brazilian, because of his strength and his capacity to score goals. No doubt, he would be a great transfer.
“I don’t know if Real Madrid are able to do it now. It would be a stratospheric transfer. He has a contract with PSG – they will not give him away for free.
“On the other hand, we are into a very expensive deal with the rebuilding of the new stadium. It is up to €1 billion. So, it is difficult.
“But if the president thinks it can be possible, he will do it. However, I guess the economy will not be the best, especially at this time, when there will be financial issues at every club.
“The costs of transfers will totally change. They will go down, and also the salaries of the players will go down.
“So, it is basically an economic point. First, the player needs to ask for a transfer request and the financial agreement will come after.
“But, again, the financial agreement for Mbappe is not easy – it cannot be done by anyone.”
