However, when you have a player of Mbappe’s quality on the field of play, you’re always in with a shout. Real Madrid president Florentino Perez was, as you would expect, watching on in envy as the World Cup winner picked Barca apart.
As per Don Balon, Perez is now keen to make absolute sure that Mbappe moves to the Santiago Bernabeu, with a loan being requested in order to fund a move to sign the 22-year-old, who looks set to be the greatest of his generation.
He doesn’t waste any time, does he?
