Kylian Mbappe has reportedly told PSG he wants to leave in 2021 and in a new report from Josep Pedrerol of El Chiringuito, Mbappe will only leave PSG for one club, Real Madrid.

Real Madrid do not intend to make any offer until PSG have given the green light indicating that they are willing to discuss the sale of the player. The reasons listed behind Mbappe’s desire include his adoration of Zidane, his dream of playing at the club, his ability to win Champions Leagues as well as the Balon d’Or, and he is also enticed by the growing French contingent at the club.

Mbappe is confident that the Sheikh will allow him to leave with one year left on his contract in 2021. He is even willing to lose money in order to play for Real Madrid. If Mbappe communicates to PSG that he only wants to leave for one club, it will make negotiations much smoother for Real Madrid as they will be the only shark in the tank. Much like the negotiations for Beckham, Zidane, and Ronaldo Nazario, Real Madrid like to wait for the player to declare their intention of playing for the club, and only Real Madrid, in order to weed out other clubs who may intentionally or unintentionally inflate the price and wages of the player.

It is still early days, but Real Madrid will be very attentive to any moves by Mbappe’s entourage in the coming months. Likewise, PSG will look to do everything in their power to try and persuade the player to stay.
