Madrid-linked Mbappe thanks Bernabeu on social media
- Mbappe has long been linked with a move to the Los Blancos.
- He played at Santiago Bernabeu managing a goal against Blancos.
- Madrid's home stadium gave him standing ovation.
- Kylian took to Instagram to thank Real Madrid fans.
Santiago Bernabeu saw Kylian Mbappe in action after all, even though the French striker played for the rival team. He did, however, manage to score a goal against Real Madrid and the Santiago Bernabeu stadium gave the 20-year-old standing ovations.
Kylian returned the favour by sharing a photo of himself applauding Bernabeu back, adding an applause emoji. Clearly, the French World Cup winner was happy with the reception he got at the Los Blancos' stadium.
This comes amidst the reports from French publication L’Equipe, according to which Mbappe isn't yet fully convinced about signing a new deal with the Ligue 1 champions. Kylian is said to want a release clause in a new contract but PSG aren't ready to offer him one, as per the source. L’Equipe's report adds that several members of the French giants are convinced that Kylian will never commit his long-term future to the club.
The World Cup winner's deal at Parc des Princes runs out in 2022. His current market value stands at €200 million.
