Kylian Mbappe seems destined to play for Real Madrid. The World Cup winner has refused to extend his contract which expires in 2024, so PSG are determined to sell him now to avoid losing him for free in the summer of 2024.
The passing of the Frenchman will undoubtedly benefit the Spanish team, but let’s talk about the players who will benefit the most from his arrival.
Rodrygo: The Brazilian is becoming a Mbappe fan at this point. He recently said that Mbappe is one of the best players in the world and a phenomenon he would love to play with.
And this week, a photo of Rodrygo and Mbappe has gone viral on social media.
Furthermore, Rodrygo would absolutely thrive with his new teammate giving him some tips and some help in Real Madrid’s attack.
Vinicius Junior: The Brazilian is currently Madrid’s best player and carries their attack on his shoulders. Mbappe will remove or at least share that burden with the Brazilian.
Jude Bellingham: Looks like a lot will be expected of the Englishman in terms of goals with Real Madrid playing in a 4-4-2 formation. When Mbappe joins the team, the weight on Bellingham to score goals will be significantly reduced, allowing the 20-year-old to flourish playing his game as a midfielder without being counted on as a striker.
Arda Guler: You can think of plenty of youngsters at Real Madrid who could learn and benefit from Mbappe, but the one player who springs to mind quickly is Guler. Turku can learn from one who managed the pressure, won the World Cup and scored amazing goals in the Champions League when he was still a teenager.
