According to new information, there is one player whom Real Madrid might have to use as a trading chip for Kylian Mbappe. 

Now that we know Kylian Mbappe wants out of PSG, Real Madrid has a lot of work to do in order to make it happen. The last option would be to pay nearly €200 million for him but Florentino Perez would like to lower the price by including one or two players. In a perfect world for him, he could give PSG footballers like Isco, Mariano, or even Martin Odegaard. However, the French giants are after a player Leonardo considers one of the best within the squad: Vinicius Junior.

Although he’s been heavily criticized in recent years for his terrible aim, the Brazilian winger has worked hard to make massive improvements. Last Tuesday he proved hard work pays off, especially after scoring a brace against Liverpool. For Leonardo, he is one of the few stars who could be included in a possible trade for Kylian Mbappe. But there’s a major problem with this: Florentino has no intention of letting the 20-year-old leave the Spanish giants. 

The name who can make PSG reconsider. 

According to former footballer Paco Buyo, he has exclusive information about PSG’s dealings due to his relationship with Nasser Al-Khelaifi. He is convinced that if Real Madrid refuses to include Vinicius in a trade for Mbappe, there’s another footballer who can get in the mix. Eden Hazard is the only other player who can convince the French giants to make a trade.

Otherwise, Real Madrid will have to pay full price for Mbappe if they refuse to offer Vinicius. Given his poor start at the club with so many injuries, Hazard would consider leaving the club a failure. Remember, this is only one of many possible scenarios that lead to Kylian finally becoming a Real Madrid player.
