Real Madrid president Florentino Perez has denied any offer being made for Kylian Mbappe but has confirmed that he would love to have the youngster playing for Real Madrid next season. The Monaco teenager has been in sensational form for Monaco attracting interests from across the world.
Mbappe’s rise to prominence in this campaign has been one of the main reasons why Monaco had stupendous success in the last season. The 18-year-old rose to the fame as he scored 26 times and assisted further 14 as they went on to lift the Ligue 1 title this term.
Madrid are contemplating signing a number of players in the summer as they go into the next season and Mbappe is one of them. It was reported that Real had a bid rejected already but Perez has confirmed that they are yet to open negotiations for the player.
Perez, who recently won the Madrid presidential election, would be hoping to make some super signing to strengthen his position in the club. He has brokered some world record deal for Los Blancos since he came to this position and Mbappe could be his next major signing.
The French teenager who also made his France debut in March has already found the net four times for the country. Real are currently in two minds about the situation of Cristiano Ronaldo. The Portuguese forward has been allegedly found guilty of a tax fraud and he is reportedly eyeing a move elsewhere from the club. His former club Manchester United are monitoring the situation although it is very unlikely that Real will lose hold of him.
Mbappe has already made his admiration known for the club as he has reportedly told the club hierarchy that if he leaves the club someday he will join Real Madrid. If Ronaldo does leave the Santiago Bernabeu then Mbappe’s chance of joining the club will be brightened.
But after just one season it would be a bit of a gamble for Madrid to invest such a huge amount on someone without a wait and watch policy for at least a season more. Mbappe certainly possesses that quality to thrive in the Spanish league but he is just 18 and needs time to redevelop his skills further.
After claiming the UEFA Champions League and La Liga title, Perez would be licking his chops to replicate the same performance in the next season. Zinedine Zidane has done a superb job in his maiden season and Perez is expected to back him with bags full of money.
