Kylian Mbappe has said he would consider a move to Real Madrid if he was given the chance.

Kylian Mbappe has praised Real Madrid, describing them as a “Ballon d’Or machine.” Mbappe was the subject of intense transfer speculation before signing a new contract with PSG until 2025, but he has not ruled out a move to the Bernabeu in the future. Last season, the Parisian striker scored 39 goals in 46 games, earning him a spot on the shortlist for the Ballon d’Or, which Karim Benzema is the clear favorite to win.

What did Mbappe have to say about Real Madrid?

Mbappe stated that he considers Ballon d’Or success when considering his future and how Real Madrid can help him achieve it.

“If I thought about the Ballon d’Or while deciding my future?” he said to France Football. Of course, yes. Real Madrid is a Ballon d’Or machine that should be recognized. There is genuine know-how. But you don’t get these awards from the clubs.” He also joked that if he were Karim Benzema and did not win the award this year, he would stop thinking about it for the rest of his life. “Benzema favorite for Ballon d’Or?” he added. Obviously. He’s 34 years old and has just finished the best season of his life. He was also decisive in winning the Champions League. If I were Karim, if I didn’t win, I’d forget about the award forever (laughs).” Will Mbappe ever join Real Madrid? Mbappe hasn’t ruled out a move to the Spanish champions after his new deal expires. “Never over, never over,” he said to the BBC when asked if his dream move was still possible. “You never know what can happen in the future.”I give up to think about the future, I only think about the present and the present is I signed a new contract for three years more at Paris Saint-Germain.” At the end of his new deal, Mbappe will only be 26 years old, leaving a huge amount of time for him to enjoy his football elsewhere, if he chose to do so. The forward admitted that there were talks with Liverpool when his previous deal was expiring, but nothing came of them. Who are the 2022 Ballon d’Or nominees? Thirty players have been nominated for the award this year, with Benzema and Kylian Mbappe being two of them. Liverpool’s new-look front three, Mohamed Salah, Darwin Nunez and Luis Diaz all received nominations and so did the club’s former forward Sadio Mane. Phil Foden and Kevin De Bruyne also featured, as well as six-time winner Cristiano Ronaldo. However, last year’s winner Lionel Messi did not receive a nomination for the first time since 2005, and neither did his team-mate Neymar.
