Kylian Mbappe was close to joining Real Madrid in the upcoming summer but the Coronavirus pandemic has played spoilsport

Real Madrid has been a long admirer of Kylian Mbappe and they have made their wish public of bringing the Frenchman to the Bernabeu. Mbappe has also given some hints of joining Madrid after he refused to sign a contract extension with PSG. The current contract keeps him at Parc des Princes till 2021.

PSG initially signed Mbappe on loan from Monaco. They made the deal permanent for €180m a year later, making him the second most expensive signing in history behind €222m team-mate Neymar.


Yvan Le Mee, who has brokered deals for Madrid signings such as Ferland Mendy and Julien Faubert, thinks a move to the Spanish capital was on the cards before the Coronavirus pandemic brought the football season to a halt.

Le Mee told Marca: “Mbappe, in a normal context, without this horrible virus or the economic problem that’s coming, we could think he was going to sign for Madrid this summer.”

“It doesn’t seem as though he’s going to renew and he has two years left on his contract. But with all this, it seems impossible that a club is going to spend now what Mbappe costs. Because if Neymar is worth 222million, Kylian is worth 300million, because he is younger and just as good, incredible.”


“He’s going to be the best striker in the world and I think he’s going to want to play for the best club in the world, which is Madrid, and for one of his idols to coach him, which is [Zinedine] Zidane.”

“Plus, today, there is no great competition in Madrid’s attack. That’s where they have a greater demand. They have a great like [Karim] Benzema, but he is going into the last years of his career. Today, there is more competition in PSG’s attack than in Madrid’s and I’m sure he’d find his place without any problem.”

“This year, there won’t be any big transfers because they are not going to do crazy things, and I think it will come after the Euros.”
