Legendary Argentine footballer Diego Maradona has named the man who he thinks Real Madrid should replace Gareth Bale with and it’s a big one.
Bale has struggled with injury over the past couple of seasons and that has really not gone down well with the Bernabeu faithful.
The player has been jeered on numerous occasions this season and Zinedine Zidane has had to defend him on several occasions.
Even players such as Casemiro and Toni Kroos have had to come out and publically back the player.
Though, Diego Maradona has other ideas and is very much in favour of selling the player and he has already named the man to come in and take his place.
The footballing legend thinks Real Madrid should replace the Welshman is none other than Kylian Mbappe.
The player, now playing for Paris Saint Germain on loan until the end of the season with an option to buy, is one of the stars of football.
Since shooting onto the scene last year in both Ligue 1 and the Champions League, everyone has been talking about the talented youngster.
Now, even Maradona is talking about him and he is desperate for Real Madrid to sign him.
“Bale? Let them sell Bale or give him away,” he explained.
“Although (Real president) Florentino (Perez) is less likely to give him away… but I think they had to sign Mbappe.”
