Real Madrid have been linked with Kylian Mbappe ever since he first burst onto the scene with Monaco in 2016. He was touted to move to the Santiago Bernabeu but opted to stay in France by joining Paris Saint-Germain for €180 million – a record fee for a teenager.
After over two years with Les Parisiens, ththe rumours linking him to Madrid are more intense than ever before but here are three reasons why the Galacticos shouldn’t sign him…
3. Extremely Expensive
Starting off with the most obvious drawback, Kylian Mbappe will cost Real Madrid a lot of money. PSG signed him for €180 million when he was still a teenager. Right now, he is a better player than he was at that time and still has a lot of years left in him.
The base price for the Frenchman will be at least €300 million, which is just the money that Madrid will have to give to PSG. Apart from that, they will have to pay him a gargantuan sum of money in wages, making the whole deal arduously expensive.
2. His Position Well-stacked at Real
Kylian Mbappe can play in any of the front three positions in attack. However, his best position is on the left. Right now, Los Blancos have Eden Hazard for that position while Vinicius Junior is also waiting in the wings.
Meanwhile, Luka Jovic is still young and has the potential to be Madrid’s main striker for the next decade. On the right, Zinedine Zidane has many more options as well, namely Marco Asensio, Brahim Diaz, Takefusa Kubo and the one and only…
1. Rodrygo Goes
Rodrygo Goes is the talk of the town right now. The Brazilian announced himself on the grandest stage of them all, i.e. the Champions League via a hat-trick against Galatasaray.
He might not be scoring at the rate Kylian Mbappe has been but it must be noted that Rodrygo is two years younger than the Frenchman and has shown immense maturity in the matches that he has started so far.
The way he is playing, it won’t be far-fetched to claim that the Brazilian has what it takes to score a lot of goals in a season, making Mbappe’s signing all the more redundant.
