One of the top targets for many European heavyweights, Kylian Mbappe, has reportedly chosen the club he wants to play for.
The Monaco starlet has given a thumbs up to Spanish giants Real Madrid, and will be joining them next season if the club is able to finance the striker’s transfer fee.
According to Marca, Mbappe, who is said to be Madrid’s number one target for the summer, has given his verdict on joining Los Blancos. The youngster has expressed his desire to join Real, and the club’s representatives, who have already been in contact with Mbappe’s family concerning the move, have been intimated about the 18-year-old’s wish.
Real president Florentino Perez believes that Mbappe fits the profile to become one of the club’s Galacticos. However, the Frenchman could cost Madrid around a staggering price of 100 million euros.
The Monaco man was initially said to be reluctant to leave Stade Louis II utfit because of his hunger to play on a regular basis. But apparently, it is being claimed that Zinedine Zidane has had a major role in convincing the striker to play for Los Blancos next season.
The report further adds that a major factor behind Mbappe’s consent for the transfer is because of the likelihood of working with Zidane.
Marca also claim that Real’s plans on signing Eden Hazard, Paulo Dybala and Antoine Griezmann seemed to have simmered down because of the recent success of Marco Asensio under Zidane, and their guaranteed pursuit for Mbappe.
