Is Kylian Mbappe, the successor of Bale in Real Madrid?

Kylian Mbappe is one of the most sought out youngsters in the world of football as the French attacker is only 18 years old but has already been highly praised for what he has done with his current club As.Monaco in the previous 2016-17 season.


It was during that season when Mbappe managed to showcase his skills as he scored 15 goals and provided his teammates with 8 assists which is impressive for a player that is 18 years old.

The 2016-17 season of Ligue 1 reached it´s end on May 20 of 2017 and from there on out, clubs began to show interest in signing the rising star. Real Madrid, Arsenal, Paris Saint-Germain and Juventus are the top clubs that have been attempting to secure the services of the French player who has already been compared to the likes of his retired country mate Thierry Henry.

When it comes to financial power, it´s hard to argue that Real Madrid is the club that has the deepest pockets and aren´t afraid to splash out whatever is needed in order to sign their desired targets.

Out of the top 10 most expensive players in football history, Real Madrid has signed 4 of them with: Gareth Bale, Cristiano Ronaldo, James Rodriguez and Zinedine Zidane which is more signings than any other club.

This shows just how much Real Madrid are willing to spend to reinforce their squad and rumors have recently been linking Kylian Mbappe with the Spanish club as a realistic and potential destination and Real Madrid is even prepared to offload Gareth Bale to any club as a way to create funds and secure the services of Kylian Mbappe.

Whether or not this is indeed true is something that remains to be seen but the future of Gareth Bale might be away from Real Madrid.
