Los Blancos’ pursuit of the French international dominated the first weeks of the summer transfer window.
Mbappe has been linked with a move to the Spanish capital since 2020 with Real Madrid highlighting him as their primary target ahead of the 2022/23 season.
Despite appearing set to join the Spanish giants, Mbappe eventually opted to sign a contract extension until 2025 with Paris Saint-Germain.
However, Mbappe has left the door open on possibly making the move to Madrid further down the line, as his new deal only takes him up to 26, and Sanchez is confident the situation will reignite.
“Mbappé has not said a firm no to Madrid, he had to say ‘no’ due to social, political and family pressure”, as per reports from Radio Marca.
“But knowing him, I am sure that one day he will play for Real Madrid.”
