Mbappe dreams of Real – Zidane

Paris Saint Germain
Real Madrid boss Zinedine Zidane is refusing to bow to the pressure as he targets Champions League victory at Galatasaray on Tuesday night.

Paris Saint-Germain striker Kylian Mbappe has always dreamed of a move to Real Madrid, according to Los Blancos boss Zinedine Zidane.

The France forward, who helped his country win the World Cup in 2018, has spoken in the past of his admiration for the Spanish outfit and there have been continuous rumours of a potential move in the future.

Asked if he thinks Mbappe will eventually play for Los Blancos, Zidane told reporters: “I don’t know, it’s the player who decides.

“At the moment he plays for Paris Saint-Germain, we’ll see in the future if that changes. I know he always said his dream is to play for Real Madrid.”

Those comments will have added further fuel to the fire but it would be highly unlikely Real could secure Mbappe’s services in the January transfer window.

PSG won’t be open to the idea of allowing one of their star players to leave mid-season although next summer could be an interesting one for the former Monaco star.

Real could see big-earner Gareth Bale move on to pastures new and that could allow Mbappe to make the switch from the French to the Spanish capital.

Los Blancos, who currently find themselves level on points with Barcelona and Real Sociedad at the top of La Liga, are also thought to be considering a potential move for Manchester City forward Raheem Sterling if they can’t get a deal for Mbappe over the line in the coming transfer windows.
