The Kylian Mbappé saga continues to rage. Yesterday afternoon, the newspaper Le Parisien announced that the French prodigy was about to join Real Madrid, a news that ignited social networks.
Among the most notable reactions was that of Vinicius Jr., one of the leaders of the Madrid dressing room. The Brazilian liked a publication of the Instagram account Sneaker Shopping, which showed a photo of Mbappé and himself with the caption “Two legends of sneaker shopping will soon team up at the Bernabéu”.
This seemingly innocuous gesture takes on its full meaning in the current context. Vinicius Jr. has never hidden his admiration for Mbappé and has already expressed his desire to play with him on several occasions. His like on Instagram is therefore a clear sign that he is eager to see the Frenchman arrive in Madrid.
A dream duo
The arrival of Mbappé at Real Madrid would be a real coup for the Merengue club. The Frenchman is one of the best players in the world and he would form a formidable duo with Vinicius Jr.
The two attackers are young, talented and complementary. Mbappé is a insatiable goalscorer, while Vinicius Jr. is a flamboyant winger capable of creating chances for himself and his partners.
Real Madrid in pole position
Real Madrid seems to be in pole position to secure the services of Mbappé. The player already has a verbal agreement with the Madrid club and all that is missing is the official signature.
The arrival of Mbappé would be a huge asset for Real Madrid, which aims to regain its throne as king of Europe. With an attacking duo of Mbappé-Vinicius Jr., the Merengues would have something to make opposing defenses tremble for many years to come.
