Real Madrid president Florentino Perez’s hilarious reply when asked about Kylian Mbappe

Florentino Perez appears to be concentrating on the club’s own players, such as Vinicius Jr. and Rodrygo, rather than a prospective transfer for Mbappe at this time.

For a while, it was thought that Kylian Mbappe would eventually sign with Real Madrid. It was well known that the French World Cup champion was a lifelong supporter of the team and Cristiano Ronaldo. The majority of supporters anticipated that he would finally go to Santiago Bernabeu this summer since his contract at Paris Saint-Germain was about to expire.

Mbappe even received a hero’s welcome from Real Madrid supporters at Santiago Bernabeu when PSG visited in the Champions League the previous year. In an unexpected turn of events, Mbappe went on to sign a lucrative new contract with PSG rather than Real Madrid, putting an end to transfer rumours despite the protracted situation and leaving Los Blancos supporters with a sour taste in their mouths.

Florentino Perez appears to be concentrating on the club’s own players, such as Vinicius Jr. and Rodrygo, rather than a prospective transfer for Mbappe at this time. The Real Madrid president was quoted by 90min as saying, “It’s not that I’m bored [of the saga], it’s that I don’t even read the news about Mbappe anymore.” He further said, “We have a spectacular future ahead of us. Vinicius and Rodrygo, I see them as Ballon d’Or winners.”

Mbappe, who is only 23 years old, is without a doubt one of the finest players in the world right now and has been consistently producing at a high level for years. However, one has to question whether Real Madrid still needs him at all. Vini and Rodrygo are both already performing at a very high level and may one day win the Ballon d’Or. So does it make sense to hire the Frenchman for a crazy salary and fee?
