In a recent statement, Real Madrid’s Rodrygo has openly expressed his desire for Kylian Mbappe to join the club, labeling the Frenchman as “one of the best in the world.” The sentiment comes amidst swirling rumors regarding Mbappe’s future and a potential move to Los Blancos.
The anticipation surrounding Mbappe’s future intensified as his contract with Paris Saint-Germain nears its expiration, making him a coveted free agent at the end of the season. While PSG remains keen on retaining the talented forward, speculation persists regarding his imminent switch to the Spanish capital. Rodrygo’s endorsement of Mbappe’s potential move to Madrid adds fuel to these speculations.
Following Real Madrid’s commanding 4-0 victory over Girona, Rodrygo conveyed his enthusiasm, stating, “I would love Mbappe to come. I always want to play with the best players and he’s one of the best in the world. I can’t talk much about him. He’s a PSG player and I have to respect him.”
Mbappe’s trajectory towards Real Madrid has been a topic of discussion since his breakout stint at Monaco, where he captured global attention with his exceptional talent. Despite Madrid’s previous endeavors to secure his signature in 2017, Mbappe opted to join PSG for a reported fee of £163 million ($205.9m). Since then, he has been instrumental in PSG’s domestic success and played a pivotal role in France’s triumph in the 2018 World Cup, followed by another final appearance in 2022. However, the elusive Champions League title has remained beyond Mbappe’s grasp, fueling speculation that a move to Real Madrid could potentially alter his continental fortunes.
