The Frenchman’s new colleague from Parc des Princes expressed his conviction that all the ‘big players’ should join the Blancos at some point.
Sergio Ramos says Kylian Mbappe will have to go to Real Madrid one day, but he hopes the striker will stay in Paris Saint-Germain for the 2021-22 season after his own arrival in the French capital.
Mbappe is strongly linked with the move to the Santiago Bernabeu amid reports that he is halting talks on a new contract at Parc des Princes.
The 22-year-old, widely regarded as one of the top players in Europe, has just entered the final year of his current deal, and it is suggested that Real will test PSG’s intention by launching a big-money bid. summer, but Ramos is eager to stay in Paris.
What was said?
Ramos joins the Ligue 1 giants with a free transfer after leaving Real at the start of the month, officially ending his trophy-laden 16-year stint at the Bernabeu.
The Spaniard believes that Mbappe is destined to join the Blancos if he continues on his current path, but wants to play with him at PSG before moving to new pastures.
Asked if he would advise the Frenchman to join Real in the future, Ramos said AS: “Of course. Madrid is one of the best clubs in the world. Historically the best.
“For me, big players have to go through there. But now I want him in my team. I want to win and for that I want the best to be on my side.
“I would never be able to give advice on a personal level. I could tell him something from experience, but I would do it privately. As a PSG player I want him to stay.
“I like to play with the best and Mbappe is one of them.”
How does Real plan to pick up Mbappe?
Mbappe joined PSG from Monaco in the summer of 2017 and has since become a World Cup winner and a Champions League finalist, and his stock will continue to rise with each passing season.
It will probably take an astronomical effort to praise the French forward from Parc des Princes, but Real is one of the few clubs in world football that can make such a deal.
Purpose reported that the Blancos are already taking steps to raise extra funds for their pursuit of Mbappe through player sales, such as Marcelo, Isco, Gareth Bale and Mariano Diaz, all now on the chopping block.
Real are willing to be patient while waiting for clarity on Mbappe’s contract at PSG and a fixed price, but club president Florentino Perez is willing to punish a step for the talented frontman before the current transfer window closes.
How did Mbappe fare in 2020-21?
Mbappe once again enjoyed a fantastic individual campaign at PSG last quarter when he helped the club win a Trophee des Champions and Coupe de France doubles.
Mauricio Pochettino’s team suffered too little in the Ligue 1 title race and the Champions League, but their star striker still managed to score 42 goals in 47 heats in all competitions.
Unfortunately, Mbappe could not carry the form with France to the European Championship, as he could not score a single goal until he missed a decisive penalty in their defeat against Switzerland in the last 16.
