For a while, La Liga was a two-man show. Lionel Messi and Cristiano Ronaldo’s individual brilliance used to dictate the fate of Barcelona and Real Madrid year in and year out, while their global appeal used to catapult La Liga’s viewership.

Even after Ronaldo’s departure to Juventus, Messi remained a league icon. But with Kylian Mbappe’s arrival at Real Madrid, Spanish football appears on the precipice of a new era.

Football pundit hails Mbappe

At least that is what Lobo Carrasco of El Chiringuito likes to believe. In a recent show, the football pundit has submitted to Mbappe, backing him to take the candle away from Messi in the years to come.

Lobo Carrasco stated, “Mbappe will take over Messi. He is a world figure.” This sentiment highlights the potential for Mbappe to not just fill the void left by Messi’s departure from Barcelona, but to truly take centre stage in La Liga.

Mbappe, a World Cup winner at just 19, possesses generational talent. His electrifying pace, clinical finishing, and playmaking ability have already established him as a global brand.

While his fellow countryman Vinicius Junior possesses immense talent, Mbappe’s current standing transcends domestic borders.

La Liga has a tradition of creating legends, and with his arrival at the Bernabéu, Mbappe has the potential to write his name alongside the likes of Messi and Ronaldo.

The Frenchman is already one of the favourites to seal the Ballon d’Or title this year alongside the likes of Vinicius Junior and Jude Bellingham.

His undoubted talent, coupled with Real Madrid’s global reach, could thus see him become the undisputed face of La Liga for years to come.

Real Madrid are set to welcome two new stars this summer, Kylian Mbappe and Endrick, but the Merengues are keen on further bolstering their squad.

Owing to the embarrassment of riches Real Madrid possess in midfield, replacing Toni Kroos with a new signing in midfield is not seen as an immediate priority.

Nonetheless, interesting opportunities will invariably be evaluated closely and it appears the name of Adrien Rabiot has entered the club’s crosshairs.

Real Madrid not the only ones interested

But, according to Gazzetta dello Sport, Real Madrid face stiff competition from Premier League clubs and Saudi Arabian teams in their pursuit of midfielder Adrien Rabiot.

The French midfielder is set to become a free agent if he chooses not to renew his contract with Juventus, a decision that seems increasingly likely.

Known for his technical prowess and versatility, Rabiot excels at playing multiple roles in midfield and notably thriving as a goal threat with late runs inside the opposition box that tend to catch opponents off guard.

While Real Madrid have no shortage of quality in midfield, Dani Ceballos’ exit could pave the way for the 29-year-old to secure a signing for Los Blancos.

However, Real Madrid would have to outmanoeuvre both the financial prowess of Saudi Arabian teams and the competitive allure of Premier League clubs to secure Rabiot’s signature.

On top of that, Juventus are also not giving up on their efforts to try and renew the contract of the French international.

In any case, Rabiot is unlikely to be a priority target for the club but they will be sure to keep a close eye on how his situation develops.
