FOOTBALL – Real Madrid Mercato: Florentino Perez snubs Kylian Mbappe for another superstar!
After the refusal of Kylian Mbappe, Real Madrid would like to move on by recruiting a great Premier League striker.
Real Madrid Mercato: Mbappe is no longer Real’s priority
Real Madrid has a new Golden Ball winner in its squad since last night with the coronation of Karim Benzema. The Merengues are expected to celebrate the French striker at the reception of Sevilla this weekend in the championship. In parallel to the ceremony, the president of Real Madrid was present and answered questions about a possible interest in Kylian Mbappe. Florentino Perez denied that the Merengues were interested and that Vinicius and Rodrygo were the future Golden Ball winners.
According to information from AS, Real Madrid is no longer interested in Kylian Mbappe, the Madrilenians want to focus on a new goal. Florentino Perez wants to recruit Erling Haaland in two years to succeed the Golden Ball winner, Karim Benzema. The Real Madrid leaders believe that the Norwegian cyborg is the ideal replacement for the French international. With this in mind, the Kylian Mbappe file should be abandoned to facilitate the arrival of Erling Haaland. Real would like to wait for the activation of the release clause of Erling Haaland in 2024 to pay 180 million euros and snatch him from Manchester City. A bad news for the Cityzens while the Parisian fans can be relieved.
Real Madrid Mercato: Florentino Perez must also manage his workforce
Alongside the Erling Haaland file, Real Madrid will have to make important decisions in the coming weeks. The contracts of the two legends Toni Kroos and Luka Modric expire next June and both players are still performing well. The Merengues could decide to extend their contracts for another year. Madrid will also have to make a decision regarding the situation of Eden Hazard who is short of playing time. Barred by the competition of Vinicius and Rodrygo, the Belgian international could pack his bags during the next winter mercato.
