According to MARCA.

In a dramatic turn of events, MARCA are now publishing that Real Madrid will sign Kylian Mbappe only if Gareth Bale leaves the club. Remember that this same website reported two weeks ago that Los Blancos had reached an agreement with Monaco for the transfer of the young attacker.

Apparently, Zinedine Zidane doesn’t want to have the BBC+Mbappe on the same roster knowing that this could be problematic in terms of minutes. Both Zidane and the board know that Bale should be the one leaving if they are interested in Mbappe, so they will try to find him a new home until the very end of August.

Manchester United are interested in Bale but they are not expected to meet the €100 million price tag Los Blancos put on the Welshman, meaning that it won’t be easy for Real Madrid to sell the player and therefore make room for Mbappe this summer.
