Emery: “When I was at PSG, Mbappe was seriously thinking about going to Real Madrid”

21 Oct 2020

Speaking to Radio Marca about Kylian Mbappe’s aspirations to join Real Madrid, Villarreal manager Unai Emery said: “When I was in Paris, Mbappe was seriously thinking about going to Real Madrid because he likes them a lot, he was very excited to play for Madrid.

“I didn’t want him to leave and I had a conversation with him and his father to convince him that he had to stay, leaving PSG is not easy.”

While Emery and Paris Saint-Germain might’ve been able to keep Mbappe at the club back then, they won’t really be able to do much if he wants to join us next season. Los Blancos are ready to bet everything on signing the young Frenchman and Florentino Perez reportedly has already reserved money to making Mbappe our marquee signing next season.
