Nothing is yet official in the Kylian Mbappé file: neither his departure from PSG, nor his signing for Real Madrid. But it’s just like that. The player has announced to his managers his intention to leave this summer, and contractual negotiations with the Spanish club are progressing behind the scenes. And the transfer is already causing a lot of discussion, including among former football stars.

Questioned in the columns of the Daily Mail, Ronaldo estimated that Kylian Mbappé would make the best possible choice by joining Real Madrid. “We have to wait until it’s official before talking about it in detail, but everyone is excited about Kylian Mbappé in Madrid. He’s an incredible player. He is going to be one of the best players of the moment, believes the 47-year-old Brazilian. I think he will finally get the Ballon d’Or if he joins Real.” Ronaldo himself won the Ballon d’Or in 2002. Mbappé has never done better than 3rd, in 2023.

The Brazilian also took the opportunity to make a small dig at the Parisian club over the management of the star striker. “I don’t know what’s true but people are talking about his situation at PSG. Of course, in Madrid he will have a team that will support him in every decision he makes, assures the one who spent five years at Real Madrid between 2002 and 2007. He will have a team to support him on the pitch and off the pitch. land as well. They will protect him,”
