Mbappe to Real Madrid could be stopped for this absurd reason, not the salary

Kylian Mbappé is reportedly very close to signing for Real Madrid, although it seems that doubts are beginning to emerge

According to Spanish media Mundo Deportivo, some Real Madrid fans have begun to doubt whether Kylian Mbappé is the right signing for the Merengue, following Paris Saint-Germain's defeat against FC Barcelona in the first leg of the UEFA Champions League quarterfinals. The apparent concern would be, beyond the economic issue, due to the fact that the French striker "disappeared" in a very important match, something that would not be allowed in Real Madrid.

Mbappé had a very discreet match against Barça at the Parc des Princes. He finished without a goal or an assist, in addition he could barely make three shots and only one of them was goal-bound. He also fell 3 times offside and could barely make 23 passes, and to top it off, his dribbling success rate was just 20%, completing only 1 of 5. These numbers reflect the little interference that the Frenchman had and that is expected for a player who is currently valued at 180 million euros according to the specialized portal Transfermarkt.

However, it seems that this rumor has not taken into account the impressive numbers that Kylian Mbappé has in the most prestigious club tournament worldwide, as he has currently managed to score 46 goals in 70 games played, with which he is on pace to become one of the top scorers of that competition. Currently, Cristiano Ronaldo and Lionel Messi top that list with 140 and 129 goals respectively.

Mbappé and his goals vs Barcelona

While it is true that the first leg of the quarterfinals of this edition of the Champions League against Barcelona, was not the best for Kylian Mbappé, the Frenchman already knows what it is to be the executioner of the blaugrana box. In two previous matches, Mbappé scored 4 goals against Barcelona, which eliminated them from the 2020/21 edition, highlighting that he scored a hat-trick at the Camp Nou, the venue where the second leg of the current campaign will be played on April 16.
