Florentino Perez on Kylian Mbappe rumors
“I’m not even paying attention to the rumors. We had a good summer of rumors and gossip and all of that is pointless now… Signing him makes no sense for us now, our attackers are developing in a great way. Vinicius and Rodrygo are two formidable players. I see them both as potential Ballon D’Or winners, we have to see how they keep developing.
“We’re only focusing on the players we have now and we’re doing just fine. [Eduardo] Camavinga, [Federico] Valverde, [Eder] Militao and [Aurelien] Tchoauemeni are young and have a promising future ahead of them” Perez stated.
