In an intriguing revelation, French sports daily L’Equipe has reported that a source inside Real Madrid has made it abundantly clear where the club’s president, Florentino Perez, stands on Kylian Mbappé.
On Saturday, Los Blancos issued a press release to deny any rumors that there’s an agreement with the 24-year-old or that they’ll announce his signing during the January transfer window.
According to this source, Perez’s unwavering focus is squarely on Mbappé. Additionally, he’s relegating Erling Haaland to the shadows as the Spanish giants continue their pursuit of world-class talent.
Real Madrid has been linked with the Frenchman for several transfer windows. As a result, Perez leaves no stone unturned in his quest to bring him to the Spanish capital. Furthermore, the club chief wants to fulfill this obsession.
“If Florentino Perez makes a big effort for a player, it will only be for Mbappé,” the source told L’Equipe. “Not Haaland. He’s obsessed with Mbappé.”

While this report does not guarantee Mbappé’s imminent arrival at Real Madrid, it underscores the seriousness of the club’s intent. If the source is accurate, Perez is ready to go to great lengths to make the dream of having Mbappé don the famous white jersey a reality.
The pursuit of Mbappé would likely come with an astronomical price tag, given his status as one of the most valuable players in the world. Still, it seems that Perez is willing to go to great lengths to make it happen.
