Reliable journalist, Thierry Marchand has reported on Real Madrid’s immediate interests in signing Kylian Mbappe in the summer.
It is being said that Zinedine Zidane has made it his mission to get his younger compatriot to the Santiago Bernabeu. That could potentially cost the Galacticos a world record fee of over €280m.
Currently, the most expensive player in the world is Neymar after he made his switch to Paris Saint-Germain for €222m two seasons back.
The report also claims that Zidane will be handed €500m this summer to completely rebuild this lacklustre Madrid side. It definitely has been an awful season for the Los Blancos fans and Florentino Perez has sanctioned all the tools needed to make the necessary changes.
With Cristiano Ronaldo gone the La Liga giants are on the hunt for their next marquee signing. For a while, Eden Hazard was thought to be at the very top of their wishlist but the wing seems to be changing in the other direction in the Spanish capital.
Mbappe was voted the best young player in the 2018 FIFA World Cup and is also the top scorer in the Ligue 1 by a significant margin. At 20 years old he has the potential to become the world’s best player, following into the shoes of the Ronaldo at the Bernabeu.
PSG are expected to put up a fight in this potential transfer but such an attractive fee might be too good to turn down.
