Ibrahimovic advised Mbappe to sign for Real Madrid

02 Dec 2021

Zlatan Ibrahimovic has never been afraid to speak his mind and he has told of how he once advised Kylian Mbappe to sign for Real Madrid, although he also then warned Paris Saint-Germain president Nasser Al-Khelaifi not to sell him.

The Swedish striker spent four years in Paris, but he left a year before Mbappe arrived from Monaco.

“It’s true that I advised [Mbappe] to leave the club,” Ibrahimovic told the Italian newspaper Corriere della Sera.

“He needs a more structured environment, like the one at Real Madrid.

“But then I told the PSG president not to sell him.”
