The Kylian Mbappe and Real Madrid transfer saga is becoming a never-ending story. Despite ongoing speculation about a secret contract, there is still no official confirmation regarding the situation. Even Real Madrid legend Ronaldo Nazario has chimed in with his thoughts on the matter. According to the Brazilian legend, Mbappe’s Spanish-speaking abilities make him well-prepared for a move to Los Blancos.

Interestingly, this potential transfer saga has lingered since 2021, causing frustration among fans and pundits. Ronaldo, himself, expressed his weariness about the situation, likening it to a “soap opera that is already getting very long.”

Notably, Ronaldo attended the FIFA The Best Award ceremony in London, where the 47-year-old opened the door wide open for Mbappe to consider joining. “Madrid always has the best players in the world,” stated R9, as per Sport“This is a philosophy that has been maintained for many years, and it is no surprise that they continue to want the best players.”

In another interview, Ronaldo also admired the PSG striker’s Spanish-speaking abilities. The 2x World Cup winner stated, “I don’t know if he’s going to Real Madrid, but it’s true that he speaks almost perfect Spanish. I find it impressive how well he speaks.”

This praise echoes earlier comments made by Lionel Messi in 2021 when he mentioned that the 25-year-old speaks ‘perfect Spanish’. These language skills undoubtedly facilitated Messi’s move to PSG, as communication was seamless. Other than this, Ronaldo is eagerly anticipating the resolution of the ongoing Mbappe-Madrid saga, which he feels has been drawn out for far too long.

He concluded, “I don’t know what’s going to happen, but this is a soap opera that is already getting very long.” These words resonate with the fans who have been eagerly awaiting a resolution. PSG coach Luis Enrique again crushed their aspirations, adding to their recent disappointments.

Luis Enrique was asked to comment on these rumors and wasted no time dismissing them as mere hearsay and falsehoods common in the soccer world. “I’m so used to that, I don’t care,” he further added. It’s no wonder Ronaldo Nazario has compared this ongoing saga to a dramatic soap opera.
