Mbappe tipped to follow ‘idol’ Ronaldo in sealing Real Madrid transfer

Kylian Mbappe will one day follow his “idol” Cristiano Ronaldo and play for Real Madrid according to former PSG man Jese.

The Frenchman is a leading light in Paris despite his tender age and has been tipped for big things.

Mbappe has already won every honour in France while also claiming the World Cup in 2018.

The forward is now into his fourth year with the Parisians having moved from Monaco in 2017.

Madrid were interested in his services at that point but the player opted to remain in his homeland.

Los Blancos are always in the market for the world’s top players and Mbappe has been tipped to one day play for the Spanish giants.

“He would love to go to Real Madrid,” the Las Palmas forward told El Partidazo de COPE.

“His idol has always been Cristiano [Ronaldo]. He loves Madrid and I am sure he will play there one day.”

Mbappe is currently in the midst of contract negotiations at the Parc des Princes.

Neymar is close to committing himself to PSG for another four years but his team-mate is still considering his next move.

He told Telefoot: “We are talking with the club. I said that I am reflecting on it too, because I think it is a signature, that if I sign, I am investing myself for the long term into PSG.

“And I am very happy here. I have always been very happy here. The fans and the club have always helped me. And I will always be very thankful to the club.

“I want to think about what I want to do in the coming years, where I want to be, and that is now I will be reflecting on it.

“I think that yes, I will have to soon make a decision. But for now I am in deep thought. If I had the answer today, I would have given it today.

“This is not a desire to take up time, it is just to really think about it.

“I don’t want to sign a contract and then one year later say I want to leave because I did not want to sign the contract. If I sign, it is to stay. That is why it requires thought.”
