“I enjoy with him in the national team and in the future, why not?”, as per reports from the Daily Mirror.

“He’s a great player, but you have to respect PSG. I have always said that and I will say it again, but I hope we will play together some day.

“(Mbappe) has said it himself. He wants to see something else and that someday he will play for Real Madrid.”

Real Madrid could now move to secure a pre contract agreement in January with Mbappe and his representatives despite PSG’s insistence over their plans to keep him at the club.

Under current contractual law, Mbappe is free to negotiate with any non French side from January 1, with Real Madrid the current front runners to secure a deal for him.
