Real Madrid decided to lower interest in Kylian Mbappe after witnessing the brilliant performance of Vinicius Junior.
Mbappe’s desire to join Real Madrid is no longer a secret. The Frenchman came close to joining Real last year, before opting to extend his contract with PSG. Recent information shows that Real has returned to this deal. However, Vinicius Junior’s form makes Los Blancos have to be carefully considered.
Vinicius has been in top form for the past two years. The rise of the Brazilian player made Real Madrid’s interest in Mbappe dwindle over time.
Marca reports that Real Madrid is not willing to spend tons of money in exchange for Mbappe’s service as before. Vinicius’ form makes the team’s management believe that the recruitment of Mbappe does not significantly improve the strength of the club.
Mbappe is now aiming to win his fifth Ligue 1 title with PSG. It is also the only title left with PSG after a bad season.
Meanwhile, Real Madrid won the King’s Cup this year. Carlo Ancelotti’s army still has a chance in the Champions League this season.
In the semi-final first leg against Man City, Real Madrid played well and obtained a 1-1 draw at the Bernabeu. The two teams will rematch at Etihad Stadium next week to choose the team to advance to the final. Man City is more appreciated but Real Madrid shows that they have enough weapons to make a surprise.
