Ex-France star Florent Malouda has backed PSG star Kylian Mbappe to end up at Real Madrid.

Mbappe has been linked with a move to the Santiago Bernabeu for some years now, and has now decided that it’s time to leave PSG.

Mbappe recently stated that he won’t be extending his stay with PSG beyond 2024.

Malouda told SunSport, via Genting Casino: “For me, it is only a matter of time before he plays for Real Madrid.

“He has that desire to wear the white shirt because he liked the team when he was young.

“Eventually, I think he will try the Premier League, but right now, I don’t see any team apart from Manchester City that would attract him.

“It is not the right time for him to come to the Premier League.

“Everybody associated with PSG and France would love him to stay, but his priority is the sports aspect and the project.

“He wants a competitive project and PSG have to do their part. Kylian could play for any club in the world.

“This isn’t about money. He is looking for greatness and wants to find a club that can match his talents and give him the opportunity to win the Champions League.

“He had the opportunity to go to Madrid and he extended his contract, so it wouldn’t surprise me if he found an agreement with PSG in the future.

“I would be very surprised if he left this summer. I think from his point of view, everything has always been clear: he wants PSG to give him a project that can fulfill his ambitions.”
