After PSG’s mauling to Guingamp, forward Kylian Mbappé spoke to the press and hinted that a move to Real Madrid might be in the cards for him.
French wonder kid Kylian Mbappé just delivered another amazing performance that keeps bringing attention from clubs like Real Madrid, the young talent scored a hat-trick on Paris Saint-Germain’s smashing 9-0 revenge match against Guingamp.
The French giants were eliminated from the Coupe de France by the same squad just days ago, they were eager to play against them this Saturday and get some sweet revenge.
The reigning Ligue 1 champions weren’t joking around as Neymar scored two goals, Meunier scored the last one, Edinson Cavani had a stellar performance with three goals and three assists, and Kylian Mbappé got another hat-trick to complete those 9 goals.
It’s performances like this the reason many clubs in the world are after Kylian Mbappé, but the French forward’s most likely destination appears to be Real Madrid for some reason.
President Florentino Perez already attempted to sign Kylian when he still played for AS Monaco, but he wasn’t successful and his arrival remains as a possibility in the future.
The player is constantly asked about this topic and he always responds with a negative answer, but today was different as he gave a hint about his future away from PSG.

The French youngster spoke to the press at the mixed zone after the match, he addressed the links to Real Madrid first, then he expressed his concern about Marco Verratti’s injury, and finally, he analyzed the match they played.
“I am very happy in Paris Saint-Germain at the moment, I have a contract until 2021 or 2022 and this is not the time to think about anything else,” said Kylian as quoted by Diario AS.
“Real Madrid? I feel very comfortable here, but you never know in football and what the future can bring. All I know is that I will finish this season here and then we will see what happens.”
“We’ve made a fantastic game, we won with authority and determination. Spending some time together has helped the club very much.”
“I am very troubled by Marco Verratti’s injury because of how important he is for the squad. He is an essential player for PSG, I seriously hope he can return as soon as possible.”
“We all know that we really need a new transfer, there are people in the club who are working very hard to make it happen.”
“We played a very complete match with rhythm and intensity. We are in the moment of truth right now, we have a very different spirit compared to the first half of the season,” he concluded.

We are certain that president Florentino Perez is currently very eager to know what the player he desires wants for the future, Real Madrid will surely make a massive effort to sign him in the future.
The main problem here remains on Nasser Al-Khelaifi, the PSG owner has repeatedly said that he will never sell Kylian Mbappé or any of the top players at the club.
The relationship between both clubs is currently in good shape, but Florentino Perez knows that he will eventually have to make a move that the PSG chairman won’t like one bit.
In a hypothetical transfer from PSG to Real Madrid, Los Blancos would have to set a record if they were to make an offer that the club’s president would consider.
The French club is the one that currently holds the record for the most expensive player in football history, as they paid an insane €222 million to FC Barcelona for Neymar.
But we all know that Florentino Perez is no stranger to setting those types of records, he’s done it twice in the past already with Zidane and Ronaldo.
Mbappé is already preparing himself for this possibility, we could tell with the statement he made this Saturday.
