Mbappe to become Florentino Perez’s latest election year Galactico?

27 Jul 2017

With Real Madrid agreeing a deal with Monaco for Kylian Mbappe’s 180 million euro move to the Estadio Santiago Bernabeu, Florentino Perez is set to deliver yet another election year Galactico.

Despite the last two elections not even presenting rivals for Perez to battle with, the club president consistently signs a big name star for big money in the poll years.

In 2000, 2004, 2009, and 2013; Luis Figo, Michael Owen, Cristiano Ronaldo and Gareth Bale respectively moved to Madrid, and 2017 will see Mbappe’s arrival.

Five stars, five world-class talents, five Galacticos and five celebrations of victory for Perez in the elections.

Figo’s arrival in 2000 opened the doors for an intake of superstars, with Zinedine Zidane, Ronaldo, David Beckham and more all following,

The last signing of this kind was Bale in 2013, and Mbappe will become the latest ‘election gift’ of Perez to Real Madrid and their supporters.
