Real Madrid forward Rodrygo has said that he hopes Paris Saint-Germain forward Kylian Mbappe joins him at the club, adding that his inclusion will help them a lot.

Mbappe’s situation with the Ligue 1 champions has taken an interesting turn. His ongoing contract runs out in 2024 and while PSG want him to sign an extension, he wants to see out the deal and leave for free next year.

Mbappe’s exit on a free transfer will cause PSG a lot of trouble as this will force the French team to sell a few players from the current roster so that they can comply with the Financial Fair Play guidelines.

Mbappe’s exit from the French capital, be it this summer or next, is directly connected with Real Madrid as they are seen as the favourites to sign the 24-year-old superstar.

Speaking on the subject, Rodrygo was quoted by MARCA as saying: “Mbappé? At Real Madrid it’s very complicated, there are always rumours, and this year there were rumours about Harry Kane.

When I arrived in Madrid there was a lot of talk about [Paul] Pogba coming, so I don’t have any information.

I don’t have any information, we have to wait and see. Of course, I hope Mbappe comes because he will help us a lot. He is a real star, but we really don’t know anything.”

Mbappe and PSG are set to intensify talks over his future and hope to resolve the situation soon. Real Madrid are happy to be patient as they believe that the longer the saga continues the lesser they would have to pay for the Frenchman.

During the interview, Rodrygo also shared an old story related to former Real Madrid left-back Marcelo, saying that the Brazilian, who has been playing for Fluminense for four months, was simply extraordinary.

“It’s nice to see Marcelo play. It’s one of the most impressive things I’ve seen. His quality is out of this world. When I arrived at Real Madrid he impressed me. When Camavinga arrived we used to do rondos and every day Marcelo would dink over him,” he explained.

Real Madrid forward Rodrygo, who is currently training with the Brazilian national team for the Copa America in the United States, expressed his excitement about the prospect of playing with Kylian Mbappe. 

Rodrygo emphasised that it would always be a pleasure to team up with Mbappe, whom he considers one of the best players in the world.

Rodrygo mentioned that it would be a great honour for him to play alongside the future Real Madrid forward. 

“For me, it’s a pleasure to play with Mbappe, I always made it very clear. He’s going to help our team a lot, he’s going to help make it even stronger than it already is,” said the forward as quoted by Mundo Deportivo.

What about Rodrygo’s place in playing XI

Mbappe and Rodrygo are set to join forces at Real Madrid starting next season. Interestingly, the Frenchman’s arrival could potentially impact Rodrygo’s playing time. 

Despite the competition, though, the forward remains optimistic and prefers to focus on his current role with the Brazilian national team rather than speculate about his future at the club.

“It is always a pleasure, but now is not the time to divert the focus, I want to be focused on the national team. 

“Mbappe is also playing the (European) championship with his national team and I want to be focused here.

“But always making it clear that it is a pleasure and a dream to play with one of the best in the world,” he added.

Rodrygo is focused on Copa America

As Rodrygo prepares for his first Copa America with Brazil, he aims to demonstrate the same high level of performance that he has consistently shown with Real Madrid in recent years. 

He recalled a memorable moment from the 2021/22 Champions League semifinal against Manchester City. 

In that match, Rodrygo scored two last-minute goals that forced extra time, ultimately securing Real Madrid’s place in the final, where they defeated Liverpool.

Rodrygo hopes to replicate such extraordinary performances with the Brazilian national team during the Copa America. 

His main goal with the national team is to have impactful moments that contribute to the team’s success, similar to his crucial role in the Champions League semifinal.
