Zinedine Zidane’s side Real Madrid have just won their first league title in 5 years and are in the UEFA Champions League final – hoping to become the first club to retain the esteemed trophy. However, with all the focus on the enormous battle against Juventus, it seems the people behind the club are busy preparing for the upcoming season and are not resting on their badges.
According to The Express, Los Blancos want to sign AS Monaco’s talented striker Kylian Mbappe – who is graded at a whooping €110-million – but there is a catch in their hunk of arguably Europe’s hottest chance in recent years. The report counts that the Santiago Bernabeu outfit will have to sell one of Gareth Bale, Karim Benzema or Cristiano Ronaldo to sign the France International because Mbappe has already made it clear that he will only move if he is assured playing time, and that too more than enough of it.
The 18-year-old has been on fire this season for the Stade Louis II outfit and his 26 goals not only helped manager Leonardo Jardim’s side lift the Ligue 1 trophy but also helped them reach the semi-final of the UEFA Champions League, where their fairy-tale run came to an end at the hands of Italian Champions Juventus.
Speaking in a recent interview with beIN sports, the teenage sensation Mbappe had made it clear that he will only leave French League champions if he is guaranteed regular football.
Mbappe said: "I'm at an age where I need to play and that will be my main focus because this year I played a lot. I'm not 30 years old. I have to play. This year has been about breaking through but now I have to confirm that and build upon it.
