Fabregas Believes Mbappé Fits Perfectly with Madrid
Former Barcelona standout Cesc Fabregas believes that PSG superstar Kylian Mbappé fits perfectly with Real Madrid. He cites the playstyle as the main factor.
It is hard to deny that Mbappé is a superstar in the sport. He is a prolific scorer, a great passer and he has defensive instinct as well. At just 21 years old, he still has room to grow even if he is already one of the best players in the world.
You should also remember that Madrid’s manager is Zinedine Zidane who has previously shown admiration for the striker. They are also both French so the connection is there for the two to unite. He has said that Mbappé is a great example of what a soccer player should be in the current era.
The love goes both ways because Mbappé has gone on to say that Zidane was his childhood idol. If you watch the young striker play, you can really see the similarities between him and the Zidane back in his prime.
This season alone, Mbappé has scored 30 goals and dished out 17 assists across all competitions. This is a great stat that shows that he is one of the most skilled players in the world. If he ever does sign for Madrid, he can succeed Cristiano Ronaldo as a true superstar donning the white kits of the club.
Fabregas who is very familiar with the La Liga system sees Mbappé as a perfect fit for Los Blancos. He said, ‘He is a very hungry boy who wants to be the best. Because of his style of play, he would fit in very well at a team like Real Madrid’.
As a fellow midfielder, Fabregas sees Mbappé as the modern example of a premium player. With what he has shown in Ligue 1, Fabregas believes that he has the ability to win the Ballon d’Or at Madrid with the team. If he continues to play at this level, it would not be surprising to see Mbappé hoisting up that trophy.
He has also spoken about youngster Eduardo Camavinga who is making his name as a great player at just 17 years old. Fabregas said, ‘In terms of conditioning, he's brutal, very strong. He doesn't look his age at all’.
Fabregas has also addressed his own experiences in La Liga in the past. He said, ‘I have already mentioned it before on other occasions. There were plenty of possibilities to sign with Real Madrid but at the end, where I wanted to play was Barcelona’. There were reports that said that he was on his way to Atletico Madrid in the past but he has since said that it does not matter anymore because it is in the past now.
With Mbappé potentially going to Madrid, he will have the chance to team up with many top players given that the club has boundless riches. He said, ‘Yes, of course, when you have the opportunity to play at the top, you have to be inspired by the best. Each one has his own style and strength to reach the elite, so it is inspiring to everybody and there is no reason for them not to inspire me as well’.
