While the transfer saga of Kylian Mbappe and Real Madrid is dominating the headlines once again, this is not the first time that the Merengues are trying to sign the French superstar.

Several attempts have been made to land the 25-year-old forward in the past by Los Blancos, with the oldest one coming way back in 2012.

Indeed, back in December 2012, Mbappe was invited to Madrid for the first time for a trial in the same week he turned 14 years old.

The then-teenager got to meet his idol Cristiano Ronaldo and French legend Zinedine Zidane, as he posed with them and clicked pictures, while also impressing the club’s youth coaches.

Now, during an interview on Envoye Special, Mbappe has opened up on his time spent on trial at Real Madrid and the experience he had during the brief stay.

“I was invited by Real Madrid. I spent 4 days there. I saw all the superstars, the whole team, my head was spinning,” Mbappe reminisced.

“After that, I had to go back and do three days of cleaning in my mom’s classroom. I went from stars to the bottom (laughs).”

Discussing his learning from the experience, he added: “At that moment I was thinking ‘what was she thinking bringing me back here?’ But now at this age, I understand. I touched the stars, I had to come back to earth.”

After that trial, Real Madrid have made multiple attempts to sign Mbappe, but have yet to taste success. But that could finally change this summer as his contract with PSG is set to expire, which means he could sign for the Merengues for free.

Real Madrid officially played their final game of the league season this past weekend and the focus now shifts to the UEFA Champions League final against Borussia Dortmund on June 1.

The Spanish champions have the glorious opportunity to secure their 15th Champions League title this on Sunday.

But heading into this clash, Real Madrid are likely to miss out on the services of one of the key players – Aurelien Tchouameni.

The Frenchman will likely be ruled out for the UCL final due to an injury incurred earlier this month.

Tchouameni on UCL final

Speaking ahead of the final, Tchouameni admitted that it would be very difficult for him to participate in the UCL final.

“I can run, I think it is very difficult to play in this final and we have more players who can be in my position. The important thing is that we are going to win this Champions League,” Tchouameni said.

The Frenchman added that he would try to help the team any way he can, stating, “If I can be the MVP from the bench, I’ll do it.”

Considered by many as the future of the Real Madrid midfield, Tchouameni has played a valuable role in the middle of the park this season.

His versatility, coupled with his ability to spread the play and put pressure on the opposition have served as key to Real Madrid’s success.

Although Tchouameni might not feature in this final, the player expressed his optimism about the Real Madrid team, adding, “I really want to play in this final, but I’m sure we will reach more finals [in coming years].”

Finally, Tchouameni expressed his happiness at Real Madrid, stating, “It’s an incredible feeling to be at Real Madrid.”

Formerly of AS Monaco, Tchouameni has featured in 88 competitive matches since joining Real Madrid in 2022. With Toni Kroos retiring, he is expected to play a crucial role for the club going forward, although not necessarily in the upcoming Champions League final.
