Florentino Perez has done it again. Once the Real Madrid president sets his eyes on a player, such player shows a major hurry to put his affairs in order and try to complete a move to Real Madrid as soon as possible.
Now, the latest superstar that may be trying to force his way out to join Los Blancos is no other than Paris Saint-Germain’s Kylian Mbappe, one of the most prolific goal scorers in the world and a longtime Real Madrid target.
Mbappe was rumored to be making a move to Santiago Bernabeu before completing his shocking transfer to Parc des Princes over a season ago, but he’s recently hinted that he’s up for a new challenge and fueled the rumors about a potential departure to join the Spanish team.
Now, Spanish channel El Chiringuito De Jugones has claimed the striker has handed a transfer request to force the French champions to let him go in the summer.

Mbappe grew up as a diehard Real Madrid and Cristiano Ronaldo fan, and Zinedine Zidane’s presence in the team may also play a major part in his desire to leave right now.
Moreover, PSG’s lack of success abroad could also be a huge reason why Mbappe claims to be ready to take a step forward on his career and leave his homeland to try and become the latest Galactico.
However, Mbappe would now have to share the spotlight with another wonderkid that’s also been turning a lot of heads as of late, as Real Madrid already announced the signing of Luka Jovic.
The Frenchman is used to playing next to players of the likes of Edinson Cavani and Neymar Jr, so it shouldn’t be a problem for him to adapt and play side by side with another top-notch striker, especially as he’s more of a threat near the flanks of the pitch rather than as in the middle of the box. Either way, it’s going to be a fun season for Los Merengues.
