Madrid [Spain], August 9 (ANI): Real Madrid midfielder Toni Kroos "would not be surprised" if Kylian Mbappe ends up at Los Blancos this summer, as the LaLiga team continues to be heavily linked with the Paris Saint-Germain star.
Mbappe, who has scored 42 goals in all competitions for PSG last season, has a contract at the French club until the end of June 2022 which the 22-year-old forward has given no indication to extend. Amid all this saga, European heavyweights Real Madrid from time to time have shown their keen interest in Mbappe.
Discussing the potential transfer with SportBild, Kroos said of Mbappe, as per Goal.com: "I prefer to talk about signings that have already been completed, but since Real always want the best, I would not be surprised."
"Next to him, [Erling] Haaland is definitely the most interesting player on the market, and therefore [would] not exactly [be] cheap. We must not forget that we are in a period where there's not an endless flow of money and, at the same time, we are completing our stadium, [which] is not free either."
Notably, PSG is confident of keeping Kylian Mbappe once the signing of Lionel Messi is finalised, as per Goal.com. The French team has failed to win Ligue 1 this past season and their campaign in UEFA Champions League was halted by Manchester City in the semi-final. (ANI)
