Although it may seem very hard to convince Mbappe against the idea of signing for Real Madrid this summer, former Liverpool star Alberto Aquilani has decided to try. Aquilani and Micah Richards spoke about Kylian Mbappe’s future after Paris Saint-Germain were knocked out of the Champions League by Real Madrid Micah Richards has urged Kylian Mbappe to join Liverpool or Manchester City instead of moving to Real Madrid in the summer – but Thierry Henry disagrees.
Mbappe has been in sensational form this season, scoring 25 goals and registering 17 assists in 35 games for Paris Saint-Germain. The forward has been consistently linked with a move to Liverpool but looked to be on the verge of signing for Real Madrid last summer. Real, it is claimed, failed with three bids for the World Cup winner, who is out of contract on June 30, and is currently free to agree a pre-contract agreement with clubs outside of France.
PSG have been looking to tie Mbappe to a new deal for some time but it has been reported that those talks have now reached an impasse. Paris were knocked out of the Champions League to Real Madrid on Wednesday night despite Mbappe firing his side ahead at the Santiago Bernabeu.
Talk quickly turned to the forward’s future after the game, with Thierry Henry claiming the forward will join Real in the summer because he wants to play for the team he supports. However, Richards, speaking on CBS Sports, believes Mbappe should look to move to the Reds or City as they are ‘the two best teams consistently’ in Europe.
Aquilani, on the other hand, thinks that Mbappe will be better off signing for Liverpool it even Manchester City this summer because the Premier League is a more fascinating platform than the Spanish La Liga.
