Kylian Mbappe of Paris Saint-Germain has been heavily linked with a move to Real Madrid next summer, and Lionel Messi's new words have given optimism to such a deal.
Lionel Messi has expressed optimism about the idea of Kylian Mbappe joining Real Madrid in the future.
PSG did not respond to Madrid's world-record bid, which Sky Sports estimated to be in excess of €220 million, in the final hours of the summer transfer season.
The French attacking star's contract with the French capital expires next summer, and contract talks with Les Parisiens are still ongoing.
Madrid have put a lot of time and effort into their long-term transfer target, who appears to be facing a lot of uncertainty about his future this season.
When his name was read out over the tannoy system and when he touched the ball during recent Ligue 1 matches, a considerable portion of the French club's fanbase decided to boo the striker.
The 22-year-old is a top target for the Spanish giants next season, and he will theoretically be able to start negotiating a pre-contract agreement with them as early as January 1.
Despite the fact that Mbappe, his new teammate Messi, and Neymar, who constitute a frightening attacking trio, continue to play a key role in PSG's assault, Mbappe is still a key player.
The fact that Mbappe is now fluent in Spanish means that any future move to Madrid will be more easier due to his ability to quickly integrate linguistically.
Contingency arrangements are thought to be in place in Paris for the possibility that Mbappe leaves as a free agent next summer.
The Ligue 1 club is rumored to be scouting replacements for their top scorer, including Borussia Dortmund forward Erling Haaland's future availability.
