Florentino Perez amazed over Mbappe’s stats being ‘better than Cristiano’ when signing for Real Madrid

Real Madrid have confirmed the arrival of Kylian Mbappe on a free transfer from Paris Saint-Germain and the attacker will join Carlo Ancelotti’s side in the coming months.

His official presentation as a new Galactico will be delayed until July as he is still contractually bound to the French institution. Yet, that will not matter much to the club and fans after the official announcement of the deal.

Mbappe’s arrival, for long, was Florentino Perez’s biggest dream as the club president believed that the biggest club in the sport must house the best in the business.

According to reports from Defensa Central, Perez is still surprised at the quality of the player coming in.

Better than Ronaldo?

Mbappe is undoubtedly one of Real Madrid’s biggest transfers of all time and it is not surprising that he is being compared to Cristiano Ronaldo.

The Real Madrid president, however, is reportedly amazed that the Frenchman’s numbers are superior to Ronaldo’s numbers at the time of his move to Madrid.

The Portuguese superstar was 24 years of age when he arrived in Madrid and had played 323 games to that point. In that duration, he had 123 goals and 65 assists to his name.

Mbappe, meanwhile, has played 368 games so far and is 25 years of age. In that duration, he has scored a staggering 288 goals and has 126 assists, close to double of Ronaldo’s numbers in both respects.

All eyes on the Euros

Mbappe will join Real Madrid after the European Championships as he leads Les Bleus from the front.

The French National team finished as the runners-up in 2016 before facing an unexpected defeat to Switzerland in the Round of 16 four years later.

Heading into the event this year, they are one of the favourites to go all the way after finishing runners-up in the FIFA World Cup two years ago.

The World Cup Golden Boot winner, Mbappe, will undoubtedly have pressure on his shoulders through this month. He has, however, shown in the past that he is capable of shouldering the same.

Ancelotti-favourite defender will leave Real Madrid if club signs 23-year-old ace

With Kylian Mbappe’s signing now a completed objective, Real Madrid turn to what was always considered the second most critical operation of this summer – Alphonso Davies.

The Canadian full-back has been on Los Blancos’ radar for a while now, but with his contract with Bayern Munich running until 2025, his signing is seen to be a tad bit more complicated.

The Bavarians’ firm stance that they wish to persist with the speedster, needless to say, has only made the objective more complicated for Los Blancos.

No room for three

Despite Bayern Munich’s repeated advances towards Davies in recent weeks, Real Madrid are firm that they will attempt to sign the player this summer.

In light of the Canadian full-back’s possible arrival, Cadena SER reveals that Ferland Mendy will almost certainly leave Real Madrid if Davies’ signing is pulled off.

Carlo Ancelotti is clear that he has no room for three left-backs in his squad. One of Fran Garcia and Mendy must thus leave the Spanish capital in such a scenario and the Frenchman is better placed on that front.

Mendy’s current deal in Madrid runs out next year and the player has been informed that a decision over his future at the club will be taken shortly.

On track with Davies

The Spanish outlet also reveal that the Canadian speedster rejected an offer from Bayern Munich in recent hours and that his departure from the Bavarian capital is not ruled out.

Bayern Munich demand a sum of €50 million for the dynamic full-back. Real Madrid, however, have set a spending limit of €30 million for the youngster and will not exceed that sum in any scenario.

Vincent Kompany’s men thus have a critical decision to make, for allowing Davies to run down the final year on his deal may well back-fire as did the case of Kylian Mbappe with PSG.

Real Madrid, as it stands, appear to be in the driver’s seat.
