Ibrahimovic reveals a conversation he had with Kylian Mbappe.
Kylian Mbappe has entered the final six months of his contract with PSG and will likely leave the French capital in the summer.
Real Madrid are the frontrunners in securing Mbappe’s signature and could even sign him as a free agent.
Former PSG striker Zlatan Ibrahimovic was asked if Mbappe should sign for Real Madrid.
“Only Kylian can answer this question. It depends on what he wants and what he thinks. I would go… but if it were PSG I would try to keep him,” Ibrahimovic says. “The club wants him to continue, but does he want to stay? There are more teams that follow him. If you can sign Mbappé and you don’t want to, it’s you’ve got the wrong job.”
Ibrahimovic then referred to a story earlier in their careers when they spoke about Real Madrid.
“It is true that one day he asked me and I replied: ‘In your place I would go to Real Madrid,” Ibrahimovic says. “I had the opportunity to play for different teams, different countries, with different footballers and that’s how I learned and grew up. Playing at home your entire career is easier. Going away is an adventure.”
