Sergio Ramos has claimed that Kylian Mbappe has to go to Real Madrid one day, although he wants the French forward to remain at PSG for now.
In an interview with AS, Sergio Ramos has practically urged Kylian Mbappe to join Real Madrid in the future. The Real Madrid legend, though, added that he would also like to see Mbappe stay put at PSG for now, as they bid to win the UEFA Champions League in the upcoming season.
When quizzed about whether Mbappe should be headed to Real Madrid in the future, Ramos said, “Of course. Madrid is one of the best clubs in the world. Historically, the best. For me, the great players have to go through there. But now I want him in my team. I want to win and for that I want them to be there. the best by my side.”
Ramos confirmed his shock departure from Real Madrid last month after weeks and months of protracted contract talks with Los Blancos. The former Real Madrid captain then went on to complete a move to PSG, joining the French giants on a two-year deal.
At PSG, though, there is another long-drawn impasse ongoing, with Mbappe yet to show any inclination towards penning a renewal with Les Parisiens, having entered the final year of his current contract. The 2018 FIFA World Cup winner has, as a result, been linked with a few big name clubs in Europe, including Real Madrid.

Meanwhile, Ramos was also asked about the advice he’d give to Mbappe, with the Real Madrid legend saying, “I advise him to stay at PSG. I am nobody to decide the future of Kylian, but I want him to stay. You have to have the best players and Kylian is one of them, like Neymar. Three of us can do great things.”
With every passing week, though, Mbappe’s future at PSG will continue to get murkier, giving Real Madrid – and his other suitors – hope of a possible swoop. For now, the Ligue 1 heavyweights continue to push hard to retain the services of the French prodigy and it will be interesting to see if he heeds Ramos’s advice by staying put at PSG this summer before possibly joining Real Madrid in the future.
