Real Madrid’s stance on January Kylian Mbappe swoop clarified

Los Merengues have turned their gaze firmly away from PSG’s controversial frontman


An insight into the current stance of the powers that be at Spanish and European champions Real Madrid when it comes to the possibility of a fresh move for Kylian Mbappe has been provided on Friday night.

The name of superstar Mbappe has of course found its way back into the headlines in a major way over the course of the week to date.

This comes on the back of a series of bombshell reports coming to the fore in France.

It is understood that, after rejecting the opportunity to depart the Parc des Princes in favour of staying put over the summer, Mbappe has since become disillusioned with life in Paris.

Citing broken promises regarding both his role and teammates, the 23-year-old is therefore eyeing a move away, potentially as early as January.

Such speculation, inevitably, has been swiftly followed by renewed links between Mbappe and the aforementioned Real Madrid.

The French international was widely expected to take his talents to the Bernabeu during the summer, only to leave Los Blancos high and dry at the last.

And such behaviour, it would appear, may have cost Mbappe his shot at lining out in the famed white of Real once and for all.

This comes amid claims on the part of Mario Cortegana of Spanish publication Marca that Florentino Perez and co. have no interest in mounting a fresh assault for Mbappe.

The hierarchy in Madrid are said to consider the prolific attacker’s recent actions completely unacceptable, with PSG viewed as the only club at which Mbappe could realistically succeed:
