Robert Pires: Mbappé must join Real Madrid | Footy Area

Former Arsenal and France midfielder Robert Pires has urged his countryman Kylian Mbappé to join Real Madrid in what could be the signing of a century.

Robert Pires said Paris Saint-Germain star Kylian Mbappé should take his career up a notch and join Real Madrid.

According to Pires, Kylian Mbappé must join Real Madrid if he is wants to achieve greatness and keep developing.

Kylian Mbappé, aged only 21, is already rubbing shoulders with the best footballers in the world, and has been tipped to join Madrid next summer.

Pires, who rejected Madrid in favor of Arsenal, said Mbappé should make the move to the LaLiga winners.

“Of course. I’m French, I like Paris Saint-Germain and I’d like him to stay in Ligue 1,” he told AS.

“But if he wants to keep growing as a player, he should sign for Real Madrid.”

Madrid boss Zinedine Zidane has openly declared his admiration for Mbappe, who already has six goals and five assists in just seven games this season.

Mbappe provided two more assists to Moise Kean in PSG’s 2-0 Champions League win over Istanbul Basaksehir on Wednesday.

Since the start of 2017-18, Mbappe has more assists (15) in the Champions League than any other player.

Zidane has also been under pressure at Madrid, who have won just one of their past four games in all competitions ahead of hosting Huesca on Saturday.

“I think it’s incredible that people talk about a crisis and the end of an era when Real Madrid lose two games before the Clasico and then draw at the death against Borussia Monchengladbach,” Pires said.

“I know there’s a lot of pressure at Madrid, but the coach and the players need to be given a calmer climate in which to do their job.

“Just because they’re Madrid or Barcelona, they can’t always beat everybody. If that were the case, football would be very boring.”

Madrid currently sit third in the LaLiga table, just one point behind Real Sociedad and Cadiz, although they can go top with a win over Huesca.
