Although they are close to finishing their purchases this summer transfer window, Spanish giants Real Madrid are ready to make an even bigger splash next season by signing one of the most impressive and promising players in football nowadays. They just completed a move for Belgian forward Eden Hazard and next summer they put the bar even higher.
According to AS, Los Blancos are still keeping tabs on Paris Saint-Germain star Kylian Mbappe and are hoping to finally lure the wonderkid to Spain once and for all next year. This will continue as part of a renewed plan to sign at least one 'Galactico' every summer. Since taking the world by storm with Monaco a couple of seasons ago, Mbappe has done nothing but improving his game and now he’s seen as one of the future faces of football.
This summer all the spotlights were taken by Kylian’s teammate Neymar and his back and forth with the club, but Les Parisiens have to get ready to receive plenty of offers for the young start next year, as he has proven again and again that he has what it takes to become a superstar.
Good thing for Madrid is that Mbappe recently stated his willingness to join a “new project” and having in mind that he’s a boyhood fan of the White House, the hype only increases over a possible Madrid move for the 20-year-old. Moreover, he somehow put himself ‘on sale’ while collecting the Player of the Year award at Ligue 1 National Union of Professional Footballers (UNFP) awards ceremony.
“I feel it is perhaps time for greater responsibility. I hope that it will be with Paris Saint-Germain, which would be with great pleasure, or maybe elsewhere with a new project,” he said, as quoted by the Daily Mail.
After spending more than €300 million this offseason, Real Madrid chairman Florentino Perez will intend to continue signing big names next year and Mbappe will surely be a priority for him when the time arrives. Albeit they have been spending a lot of money in players, PSG doesn’t seem like a club that actually attracts player thanks to something else than money, and that would be a problem for them at the time of trying to retain Mbappe.
