Kylian Mbappé, who had been announced as Real Madrid’s major recruitment target for months, was nevertheless able to determine that the club from the Spanish capital could no longer recruit him in one year due to the economic crisis associated with the Covid-19 pandemic.
Kylian Mbappé joined PSG shortly after Neymar in the summer of 2017 and switched from being one of the best players in the world to being one of the best players in the world for three years in Paris. And of course this went hand in hand with a growing interest among European clubs in the French international, starting with Real Madrid. The 2018 world champion often sees his name associated with the merengue, who dreams of winning him as the figurehead of his project in the summer of 2021, one year after his contract with PSG ended. But then it could be that current economic reality is causing Real Madrid to radically re-examine their plans.
For Real Madrid, the Mbappé file would depend on the development of the pandemic!
And for good reason, as AS explained this Saturday, the development of the Covid-19 pandemic will be crucial for Madrid’s finances this 2020/2021 season and therefore for the development of the Kylian Mbappé soap opera. Real Madrid executives are aware that the French could be within reach in a year and have decided not to hire staff this summer. However, Los Blancos’ financial situation will depend on the development of the pandemic and, in particular, the possibility of having an audience in the stadiums playing behind closed doors and severely affecting the club’s finances. If the situation does not improve, Real Madrid will always try to find a solution to wrest PSG’s Kylian Mbappé when the French are reachable, but the Madrilean task could then be even more complicated, if not impossible.
