Mbappe set to join Real Madrid this year: Morientes

It seems like just about everyone has an opinion on the Kylian Mbappe transfer saga. The Paris Saint-Germain forward is believed to be on his way to join Real Madrid when his contract expires this summer and former Los Blancos star Fernando Morientes believes that the move will materialise this year despite talks of a short-term extension.

Morientes spoke to Spanish media and boldly declared “Kylian [Mbappe] will join Madrid this year.” The former Galactico knows what it’s like to be part of the Florentino Perez project, and he says that Mbappe is a good fit for the high profile club. “I have listened to the club and to Florentino [Perez] a lot. The president rates him highly because he is unique. He could play at Real Madrid for many years.”
