Cristiano Ronaldo replacement gives green light to negotiations

According to reports from Don Balon, French sensation and Paris Saint-Germain winger Kylian Mbappe has given the green light to his agent so as to enter negotiations with Real Madrid over a possible transfer. The 19-year-old has reportedly been identified as the ideal replacement for the outgoing Cristiano Ronaldo, who is set to join Juventus later this month.

Mbappe has been in scintillating form for PSG ever since joining the Ligue 1 giants from Monaco at the beginning of the season and has continued his stellar showing into the FIFA World Cup in Russia, where he became France’s youngest ever goal-scorer in the history of the tournament. The youngster joined the Ligue 1 champions on an initial loan spell which is set to become a permanent deal, worth around €180 million, this summer.

If reports are to be believed, Mbappe could well be on his way to the Santiago Bernabeu to fill the void left behind by the departing Ronaldo. However, there hasn’t been any official confirmation from the Los Blancos as of now but without the shadow of a doubt, Mbappe will be among the high-profile candidates who are line to become the next Galatico.
