Is Mbappe the risk worth taking?
At 18, most teens start their college education. But, Kylian Mbappe is on the verge of signing for the biggest football club in the world – Real Madrid. If reports are to be believed, Madrid is ready to offer a stagering 180 million euro for the Monaco star striker who helped Monaco to win Ligue 1 scoring 26 goals in 46 appearance and that to against the likes of Man city, Dortmund, Juve, etc.
After the departure of Alvaro Morata to Chelsea and James Rodriguez to FC Bayern. Madrid is in dire need to strengthen their forward lineup. With BBC trio haven’t being performing with full potential in the last couple of seasons, Madrid might be forced to offload either the services of Bale or Benzema, in that case the latter seems more likely.
“Recent survey done by Spanish publication AS, shows that 72% of Madrid fans want Gareth Bake to be sold.”
180 million seems large anount for a teenage, but in this market it isn’t. With the selling of Morata and Danilo for combine total of 120 million euro approx. Madrid is in no financial problem for splashing money in this year tranfer window.
Madrid’s Presidential election is due next year which can lead Florentino Perez to go full blazing signing the next “Galactico” whatever the cost will be. And, if Madrid doesn’t sign him other top club will and who knows what might he become. Perez will surely don’t want to regret the same way he does for Neymar.
So what do you think? Is Mbappe the risk worth taking for Madrid, or should they invest somewhere else?
