Kylian Mbappé asks questions in Spain and Madrid

Kylian Mbappé likes big meetings. Since his professional debut, the Frenchman has always assumed his status and the pressure that goes with it. Last night, he was expected at the turning point during the semi-final second leg of the Champions League against Borussia Dortmund. Little to their advantage during the quarter-finals against FC Barcelona, ​​despite a double in the return match in Catalonia, KM7 also disappointed last week at Signal Iduna Park. A reaction was therefore expected yesterday during the meeting which could allow PSG to qualify for the C1 final.

Initially aligned on the left wing, his preferred position, the captain of the Blues missed out on his match yesterday. Disappointing on every level, the 25-year-old told the media: “we are disappointed, obviously, for the club, for the supporters, but we are eliminated. We gave everything, everything is not to be thrown away, we will have to learn from what worked and what didn’t work, that’s how it is, but we missed too many things up front.» Then, a journalist asked him if it was his last Champions League match with Paris. “This season for sure, because we are eliminated”replied the former AS Monaco.

A failed release for the Iberian press

This was not the place or time to talk about his future. But his future will be written far from the French capital, which he will leave free to join the club of his dreams: Real Madrid. It’s no secret. Moreover, the case of the French attacker is covered daily in the Iberian media. Last night, they closely followed Kylian Mbappé’s performance. Especially since in the event of qualification for the final, he could have crossed paths with his future club. A club where the locker room does not want KM7 to steal the spotlight from the group, which can experience an exciting end to the season.

But this is another story. Regarding the Parisian’s performance yesterday, Spain did not mince its words. In Catalonia, there have been many criticisms about the future of Madrid. In the capital, Marca spoke about “Shipwreck of Mbappé” while A.S. dropped : “Mbappé bids farewell to the French capital with more pain than glory.” The observation is the same for Juan Carlos Navarro, journalist for Fichajes.com. “His match was not good and it was little to his advantage”, he explained to us before discussing the Frenchman’s upcoming arrival in Madrid. And he has doubts about it.

Mbappé needs Madrid more than the other way around

“I think it’s Kylian Mbappé who Real Madrid needs, because if he wants to win the Champions League and aspire to win the Ballon d’Or, this is the most suitable team. Real Madrid, on the other hand, are already showing that they can survive perfectly without him. Despite the departure of Karim Benzema and the absence of a world-class number 9, the Merengues notably won the Spanish championship and can qualify for the C1 final. KM7 will have to bring something more to this team which already counts on Vinicius Jr and Rodrygo.

In recent months, many have been asking questions about its level, which is less good, and the way in which it will be used. If Real Madrid plays with two players up front, he could be associated with Vini Jr. In a 4-3-3, it seems difficult to see Ancelotti aligning him on the left where Vini Jr is satisfactory. He would probably have to settle for playing as a No.9, which is not his cup of tea. Moreover, many believe that the Merengues should have instead focused on Erling Haaland, who has the profile the team was missing. Whatever the case, the KM7 file is still causing ink to flow this Wednesday.

Change clubs to win the C1

Like Juan Carlos Navarro, Josep Pedrerol, presenter of the show El Chiringuitobelieves that the player born in 98 needs Madrid to take a step forward. “Mbappé confirmed it yesterday. To win the Champions League, you have to be in Madrid. For its part, Marca is more or less of the same opinion. “The 2 billion euros invested by the Qataris since their arrival in Paris once again falls short of the main objective while Mbappé, in his last opportunity to lift the trophy as a PSG player, falls again in Europe (…) He will not reign in Europe… by playing in Paris.” Relevo also goes in this direction.

“Kylian Mbappé bids farewell to the Champions League with PSG. Everything indicates that he will no longer wear the jersey of the Parisian club during a match in the highest continental competition (…) The elimination of PSG, against Borussia Dortmund and in the semi-final, puts an end to Mbappé’s time at Paris in the Champions League. He arrived at the Parc des Princes seven years ago, in 2017, beardless and with the always difficult task of leading a project designed to win. Just for that (…) Mbappé will no longer play the C1 with PSG. Their match against Borussia Dortmund was gray, like their home stretch of the season. When thinking about his next destination, everything points towards Real Madrid, who risks their presence in the final on June 1 against Bayern Munich. Mbappé, who did not wish to answer the favorite of this match yesterday, will follow this match closely, he who could join the potential winners of the tournament. If this is the case, he will have to show more than ever that he can bring something more to a team which is already winning without him.
