The father of Paris Saint-Germain forward, Kylian Mbappe reached out to Real Madrid president Florentino Perez after Los Blancos’ remarkable comeback against Bayern Munich in the UEFA Champions League semi-finals, reports Defensa Central.

Wilfried Mbappe, Kylian’s father, shared his enthusiasm with Perez, saying, “We have seen it from home… it has been amazing, we are looking forward to being there.” 

These types of exciting matches capture the attention of top players around the world, and Real Madrid’s impressive performance against Bayern Munich certainly did not go unnoticed.

Real Madrid’s recent successes are undoubtedly attracting high-profile players, and many are eager to don the famous white jersey, including Mbappe

As such, the club is expected to have a stellar squad next season under Carlo Ancelotti. Mbappe, in particular, is seen as the player who can elevate Real Madrid’s status even further. 

Despite facing some criticism for his performance against Borussia Dortmund, there is no denying his status as one of the best players in the world.

As suggested before, Mbappe’s farewell ceremony at PSG is planned for this Sunday at the Parc des Princes. 

The event coincides with PSG’s last home game of the season against Toulouse, where the French forward will bid farewell to the club’s supporters. 

Unfortunately, Mbappe and PSG will not be participating in the Champions League final at Wembley this year. 

For what it is worth, it would have been a historic and highly anticipated match-up if Mbappe had been able to face off against his potential future team in the final. 

Real Madrid, on the other hand, have their sights set on winning their 15th Champions League title. While the club has a healthy respect for Borussia Dortmund, the mood at Madrid’s training facility, is one of cautious optimism.

The German international starts in the centre of the park alongside Federico Valverde, while Eduardo Camavinga slots in as the No. 6.

Meanwhile, Real Madrid captain, Nacho Fernandez, also starts in what could be his last game at the Bernabeu as well.

Nacho pairs up with Antonio Rudiger in defence, flanked by the full-back pairing of Dani Carvajal and Ferland Mendy. Thibaut Courtois starts in goal ahead of Andriy Lunin and Kepa Arrizabalaga.

Up front, Vinicius Jr. starts in attack, partnering up with Rodrygo Goes. Top scorer Jude Bellingham occupies the attacking midfield role for Real Madrid.
