Zlatan Ibrahimovic, the AC Milan striker, has revealed why he advised Paris Saint-Germain’s Kylian Mbappe to leave the French Ligue 1 giants for Real Madrid.
Zlatan, a former PSG star, said he urged Mbappe to leave the club because he feels the 22-year-old needs a more structured environment like that of Real Madrid.
Mbappe has been heavily linked with a move to join Real Madrid.
The France international recently rejected talks to extend his contract with PSG.
The forward has only one year left on his current deal with PSG and he is expected to join Real Madrid next summer.
PSG recently rejected Real Madrid’s €220million deadline day bid for Mbappe despite the player’s contract expiring in a year.
When asked if it was true, he advised Mbappé to leave PSG, Zlatan told Corriere della Sera: “It is true.
“Mbappé needs a more structured environment, like that of Real Madrid. But then I told the PSG president not to sell him.”
