The Kylian Mbappé transfer is in overdrive as Real Madrid has put a second offer of €170-million plus €10-million in bonuses. As a result, various reports have surfaced when it comes to possible replacements for the 22-year-old.
One name that recently arose is Everton FC forward Richarlison. However, manager Rafa Benitez spoke to the media, where he was asked about the rumors surrounding his striker. The Spanish tactician stated that they have no intentions to sell the Brazil international.
“We are not considering selling him. [Richarlison] is our player and we are really please with him, really happy. Hopefully, he can score a lot of goals this season.” Benitez said. Quick and to the point, so if the capital club does sell Mbappé, they’ll need to look elsewhere.
