Carlo Ancelotti on Kylian Mbappe’s transfer rumours 

When asked about Kylian Mbappe's prospective arrival at the Santiago Bernabeu during the forthcoming summer transfer window, Real Madrid manager Carlo Ancelotti responded firmly. The Paris Saint-Germain superstar's current deal expires in the summer, sparking considerable speculation that he may join Los Blancos on a free transfer.

"You keep asking me about a player who plays for another team. We already have the best players in the world here. In order: Vini Jr first, Bellingham second, Rodrygo third. Then Kroos, Valverde, Camavinga."

Kylian Mbappe would certainly benefit from a possible transfer to Real Madrid, especially in light of his desire to win the UEFA Champions League. The brilliant attacker has an attractive prospect because the Spanish powerhouses have an excellent record of 14 UEFA Champions League wins, with their most recent victory coming in the 2021/22 season.

Mbappe hasn't lifted the prized Champions League trophy in his six years at the Parc des Princes, despite winning the Ligue 1 championship five times during that period. Even yet, his contribution to PSG's accomplishments cannot be overlooked; in 289 games in a number of tournaments, he scored 242 goals and provided 105 assists.
