Real Madrid is inarguably one of the most prestigious football clubs in the world. Most players have openly admitted that they have dreamt of playing for the Los Blancos. And despite Real Madrid not being at its peak of sporting power, the fact that a superstar like Kylian Mbappe was willing to leave PSG is a testament to Real Madrid’s prestige.

“All the big players want to come one day to Real Madrid, so I hope that he can do so quickly if he wants to leave PSG – who are also a good team. He’s a good player as he has already shown. For his young age, he knows how to do everything. These are the players that I love, who know how to take a touch to do something meaningful.”

PSG currently is a team boasting of arguably the greatest striking trio in recent football history. Meanwhile, Madrid has not been the same ever since Cristiano Ronaldo left for Juventus. Even the arrival of Eden Hazard could not do any good for Madrid. However, the signing of Mbappe will surely be a huge boost for Real Madrid.
