Real Madrid manager Zinedine Zidane has hinted that Paris Saint-Germain superstar Kylian Mbappe could move to the Bernabeu sometime in the future.
The legendary Los Blancos midfielder recognised that it has been Mbappe’s dream as a kid to play for Real Madrid.
This is common knowledge as of now but Zidane scouted Mbappe at the tender of age at 13 and wanted the French World Cup winner to come to Madrid.
However, Mbappe opted for Monaco and rose through the ranks of Les Monegasques before joining PSG in the summer of 2017 on loan before making it permanent a year later.
It was only last summer when the young striker stated that he was open to a new project and could leave the French capital to further his career.
Currently, the odds of the French international moving to the Bernabeu in the January transfer window sits at 8/1.
Both Liverpool and Barcelona are also reportedly in the hunt for the electrifying forward with a move to both clubs set at 9/1 and 12/1 respectively.
Mbappe has started the season in superb fashion despite suffering multiple hamstring injuries. The 20-year-old has a whopping 9 goals and 4 assists in 10 appearances for Thomas Tuchel’s side.
However, it must be noted that most of these appearances come as a substitute thus meaning that Mbappe has not played a lot of minutes.
Therefore, Mbappe’s numbers are even more ridiculous as it means that the wonderkid has a goal involvement every 46 minutes.
The Frenchman’s goals have helped Paris Saint-Germain stay at the top of Ligue 1 as well their Champions League group ahead of Zidane’s Real Madrid side.
Mbappe did not feature in PSG’s 3-0 demolition of Los Merengues and the result highlights the poor form that Zidane’s side have exhibited so far this campaign.
Despite signing the likes of Eden Hazard and Luka Jovic, a signing such as Mbappe is still required as Zidane’s side have only won 6 out of 11 of their La Liga fixtures.
They sit second and on the same points as league leaders and arch-rivals Barcelona but their record, as well as their performances, have not been up to scratch in the eyes of the notoriously harsh Real Madrid fanbase.
During Zidane’s first tenure at the club, this was the case but he atoned for the poor form in the league with his extreme success in Europe where he helped Madrid win three Champions League titles in a row.
However, they have struggled in Europe’s biggest competition having only won once out of their three group games so far.
With PSG looking in sensational form, it looks extremely difficult for Madrid to top the group but are still heavy favourites to qualify for the knockout stages.
