Video: Marcelo left looking bemused as Real Madrid fans continue to insult Kylian Mbappe


 

Footage of the Real Madrid faithful making clear their frustrations with Kylian Mbappe once more has surfaced online on Sunday evening.

French international Mbappe, of course, was widely expected to take his talents to the Spanish capital this summer.

On the back of a transfer saga spanning several years, the understanding across the media was that the 23-year-old had run his contract with Paris Saint-Germain down to its final month owing to his desire to seal a long-awaited free-agent switch to Real.

In turn, it came as nothing short of a shock when, last weekend, a complete U-turn culminated in Mbappe committing his future to PSG, by means of a lucrative new three-year deal.

Mbappe’s announcement, however, whilst sparking unbridled joy amongst supporters of the aforementioned PSG, altogether understandably, did not go down quite so well with those of a Real Madrid persuasion.

Recent days have seen the Frenchman labelled everything from a ‘traitor’ to a ‘snake’, amid the suggestion that Mbappe led Los Blancos on something of a wild goose chase over the course of several transfer windows running.

And, as alluded to above, on Sunday evening, the Real faithful made use of the opportunity to take aim at the ex-Monaco talent once more.

Amid the club's celebrations on the back of their latest Champions League triumph, Marcelo took the stand in Madrid, to speak to the thousands in attendance ahead of his imminent Bernabeu departure.

Interrupting the Brazilian's address, though, were loud chants of “Kylian Mbappé, son of a b***h,” leaving Marcelo looking understandably bemused.
