Former Monaco vice president Vadim Vasilyev has confirmed Kyllian Mbappe will eventually move from PSG to Real Madrid.
The French striker played in Monaco, scoring 27 goals during his 60 appearances. Recently he has been linked with moving to Real, after his impressive season at PSG.
Vasilyev believes it’s just a matter of time before the 20-year-old moves to Bernabeu.
The 54-year-old told Telefoot: “Kylian told me: ‘Vadim, I feel it deep inside me, it is too early [to leave France]. I have only played in my country for one year. I am Parisian and I do not want to leave my country this way. I want to be a great player here, Real can wait.’ It is coming [a move to Real Madrid], but he told me that was his feeling and he was right. I told him: ‘They will come knocking and the entire Santiago Bernabeu will applaud when you arrive. You do not need confirmation to know that.'”
During the summer, Mbappe revealed he would be open to a “new project” and considered his future at the Parc des Princes. However, PSG announced he would stay at the French club for the 2019/20 season.
