Real Madrid hierarchy discuss Mbappe’s situation

27 Jul 2017

Following the club’s latest training session at UCLA, Zinedine Zidane, Jose Angel Sanchez and Florentino Perez met to discuss the circumstances regarding the seemingly imminent arrival of Kylian Mbappe to Real Madrid.

There is a principle agreement between both AS Monaco and Real Madrid, leaving Zidane with the possible headache of finding minutes for the striker alongside Karim Benzema, Gareth Bale and Cristiano Ronaldo.

During the heated meeting, the three Los Blancos chiefs argued for over half an hour on various subjects including the 18-year-old striker, but also the situation of a potentially departing Achraf Hakimi, who Zidane is keen to provide as backup for Dani Carvajal.

Another topic of discussion was the overcrowded midfield following the acquisitions of Dani Ceballos and Marcos Llorente, as the French coach may have to let a player or two go due to the idea of having a 22-man squad with two players per position.

As for the attack, there is the notion that another striker may have to depart if Mbappe arrives, especially as Ronaldo and Benzema look set to stay at the Estadio Santiago Bernabeu.

As for Bale, he mentioned in an interview with MARCA of his intentions to stay in the capital, although Jose Mourinho is reportedly opening the door to Old Trafford once again.

Similar to the case of Mariano Diaz last season, Borja Mayoral may find himself short of opportunities playing for the reigning LaLiga champions next season, although the academy graduate would prefer to stay.
