Mbappe is known to have just released an autobiography in comic form last November. In the book, entitled Je m’appelle Kylian (My Name is Kylian), he tells about the journey he had to go through to become a football star.
In the book there is also an explanation that as a child, Mbappe’s dream was to join Madrid, the club where his idol player used to be. Cristiano Ronaldo. This story has been known for a long time, and that is what makes Mbappe heavily linked with El Real.

Ancelotti was also asked this in a press conference ahead of the match against Real Sociedad this weekend. Simple but sharp, the Italian gave a signal of interest, inviting the 22-year-old to move to the Santiago Bernabeu.
“A child has to follow his dream, like I used to dream of playing in Serie A and it finally came true,” he said Ancelotti as quoted by Marca.
With the remaining contract in PSG which is only until June 2022, plus his reluctance to extend the contract, Mbappe believed to be moving to Madrid for free next season. This is clearly a loss for PSG, who first brought him at a price of 145 million euros from AS Monaco.
