'Real Regret Missing Out On Mbappe'

Real Madrid president Florentino Perez still regrets missing out on World Cup winner Kylian Mbappe, according to AS Monaco vice-president Vadim Vasilyev.
 
Los Blancos were believed to be very keen on the France international when he helped Monaco lift their Ligue 1 title.
 
However, the player opted for a move to Paris Saint-Germain in deal believed to be worth  €180 million.
 
“Every time I meet with Florentino (Perez), he tells me of his regret for the Mbappe situation,” Vasilyev told RMC Sport, as cited by Cadena Cope.
 
“He puts the blame on me for not selling him to Madrid…but it was up to the player!
 
“Relations between us and Madrid remain strong though, and we both wish the player, who is a future Ballon d’Or winner for sure, was at our own club!”
 
Los Blancos have yet to bring in a big-name replacement for Cristiano Ronaldo, who joined Juventus.
 
Do you think Madrid will be fine without Ronaldo this season? Let us know in the comment section below.
