Real Madrid haven’t tried to keep it a secret, they are interested in signing Kylian Mbappe from Monaco, they are even reported to have made a big offer to the Principality club, but at least one of their key players last season feels that the Blancos will be more than fine even without the young Frenchman.
We’re aware that he’s a great player, but we’ve also got the BBC [Bale, Benzema and Cristiano], who can wreak real havoc
Casemiro told reporters when asked to comment on the 18-year-old’s potential move to Santiago Bernabeu.
The more players we have, the better it is for us. That said, the best players are already here. We know all about the quality that players like Mbappe, Neymar… possess, but I’ve got to talk about our players
the Brazilian midfielder said, insisting that Real Madrid’s roster is already so full of attacking talent, that a new addition wouldn’t change things spectacularly.
We’ve got the world’s greatest player [Ronaldo], then there’s Bale – who’s working very hard – and Karim, who has great quality, Isco, Borja [Mayoral]…I’ll back our players to the hilt
Casemiro also said. His coach though, Zinedine Zidane, was the first to say right after Alvaro Morata signed at Chelsea, that his departure has left Madrid a striker short, and someone should be signed in his place.
