A Blancos legend would really like to find the Paris Saint-Germain superstar complete a move to Santiago Bernabeu later in the year.
Paris Saint-Germain forwards Kylian Mbappe is among the greatest players in the world and he’d be an important addition to Real Madrid’s rankings, according to Luis Figo.
In the age of just 21, Mbappe has achieved more than many players handle over the course of an entire career.
The Frenchman has three Ligue 1 titles under his belt, as well as a World Cup winners’ medal, and he also finished fourth in the last voting for the 2018 Ballon d’Or award.
Mbappe has been a key figure for PSG once more this year, netting 23 goals in 27 games across all contests.
His performances continue to draw attention from top clubs around Europe, with Real Madrid reportedly leading the race for his signature before the summer transfer window.
Questions are raised over Mbappe’s future at Parc des Princes in the aftermath of his furious reaction to being substituted by Thomas Tuchel during a 5-0 win over Montpellier on February 1.
Tuchel has played down the importance of the incident, but PSG’s resolve could be analyzed if Madrid opt to start a world-record bid to the France global once the market reopens.
Figo, who played for the Blancos between 2000 and 2005, believes Mbappe”is a wonderful signing” for his previous team given how”passionate” he’s about honing his craft.
“Age does not mean anything when you’ve got all these qualities,” Figo told RMC Sport in the Laureus Sports Awards in Berlin.
“The important thing is that he has been passionate about this game, he continues to improve, to want to become better each day. That’s the way he’ll achieve everything he needs.
“Mbappe is a young participant, among the very best in the world, among the most expensive also. He’s in a team with no financial issues, I don’t know if it is going to be possible to signal him.
“But he’d be a fantastic signing for Real Madrid.”
Mbappe was left from PSG’s squad to the 4-4 draw away at Amiens on Saturday, as Tuchel rotated his line-up before a return to Champions League action.
The French champions are scheduled to face Borussia Dortmund at the first leg of the last-16 tie on Tuesday night.
Mbappe will probably be restored to Tuchel’s starting XI for the battle in Westfalenstadion, as PSG seem to progress past the first knockout stage for the first time since 2016.
