Mbappe eyeing PSG exit
Kylian Mbappe is, of course, one of if not the hottest prospect in world football right now.
Despite being just 21, the Frenchman has notched 90 goals and 51 assists in just 124 outings for PSG.
The hitman has also netted 14 for France’s senior side and played a key role in his country lifting the 2018 World Cup.
However, Mbappe’s stint in Paris does look to be coming to an end.
Mbappe has just under two years remaining on his current contract.
However, PSG look set to lose the forward sooner, with it recently claimed that Mbappe has informed the Ligue 1 giants that he intends to leave at the end of the current campaign.
Why Mbappe could join Real Madrid
With PSG no doubt set to demand a premium fee for their young star, you would imagine only a handful of clubs across Europe would be able to secure his services.
On that list would presumably by Spanish powerhouse, Real Madrid, who love nothing more than a ‘galactico’ signing.
Now, on Monday, Spanish outlet AS have provided five reasons why Mbappe could join Real Madrid.
Said reasons are all believed to be purely football related, rather than personal – with AS claiming Mbappe is already earning over €20m-per-year.
The first reason given for Mbappe moving to the Bernabeu is his admiration for their current boss Zinedine Zidane – who Mbappe has idolized since he was a small child.
Zidane’s presence would also no doubt be a key factor in Mbappe’s second reason for joining, to win the Champions League.
PSG, of course, came up short in 2019/20’s final. But with Madrid and Zidane in particular, Champions League specialists, Mbappe clearly feels he would have a better chance of lifting the trophy with Los Blancos.
Should Mbappe indeed win the Champions League with Real, you would imagine he would have a great chance of winning the Ballon d’Or that year, just ask Luka Modric and Cristiano Ronaldo. And this is yet another reason why, according to AS, Mbappe could join Madrid.
Finally, AS add that the prospect of playing in a new Bernabeu and alongside several of his countrymen such as Karim Benzema and Raphael Varane are also reasons why Mbappe could choose Real Madrid.
