During a punditry job for BT Sport, one of Real Madrid’s legends gave Kylian Mbappe some much-needed advice about his future. 

The talk of the town is Kylian Mbappe’s possible transfer to Real Madrid next summer. We just got word of the player allegedly telling his current club that he won’t continue playing for them next season. He believes he is done with PSG after this campaign and he only wants to play for Real Madrid. Kylian also became the most talked about player from all the former stars who are currently working on television.

One of them has unique advice that could help Mbappe reach a final decision: Steve McManaman. The former England international played for Real Madrid and became one of the club’s legends due to his wild success. For him, we in the presence of the next football king around the world. In fact, he is convinced Mbappe will likely dethrone the greatest players of the era. It’ll happen either this year or the next. 

McManaman is in awe with Mbappe’s talent. 

During his punditry work for BT Sport, this is what McManaman said about Kylian: “Mbappe’s claim to the throne is going to happen now or next year. I don’t know whether he can keep improving at PSG. I think he’s an incredible, incredible footballer. He’s the rightful heir to Cristiano Ronaldo and Lionel Messi’s throne, which is going to happen now or next year.

“His numbers are fantastic. I just don’t know whether he needs to leave and go to a more accomplished team, not just a team littered with a couple of stars but a really compact group of individuals to take him to the next level. Maybe it’s a bit strange saying that, seeing what he’s achieved already. But I feel if he went to a team like Bayern he could really excel and kick on again, and get to the numbers to usurp a Lionel Messi.”
