Madrid following Mbappe and Donnarumma but not interested in De Gea – Perez

The emergence of 18-year-old Mbappe and Donnarumma’s contract situation at AC Milan have caught the eyes of club chiefs in Madrid, though.

To run for Real Madrid’s presidency, candidates must have been a member of the club for 20 years and show they have at least Euro 75 million in a Spanish bank.

If Mbappe does join Los Blancos he will then become the 13th Frenchman to represent the record La Liga champions with global teammate RaphaĆ«l Varane and Karim Benzema now part of Zinedine Zidane’s first team squad.

“Mbappe has some very good ways and surely he’ll become one of the greatest”.

“Last year we had a possibility that we didn’t take, and now we have no agreement with Manchester United to sign him”.

While Perez admits the club are interested in signing a keeper in Donnarumma, he insists there is no longer any interest in signing David de Gea.

Donnarumma’s talent was first spotted by Napoli as a schoolboy when he joined the club’s coaching academy. Real Madrid has always had the best players in the world. Two years ago we had an issue and then the appropriate circumstances didn’t arise.

Became the youngest player ever to represent Italy when he made his national team debut in a friendly against France on September 1, 2016 aged 17 years 189 days.

Rumours surrounding Mbappe’s future continue to swirl as Perez and Real officials also try to keep a lid on the reports surrounding Cristiano Ronaldo’s place at the club.

De Gea had been heavily linked with a move to the Bernabeu, and famously came close to joining the Spanish giants two summers ago, but saw the transfer fall through after paperwork failed to be completed in time.

Real Madrid have always been linked with a move to replace Zinedine Zidane’s current No.1 Keylor Navas, despite his impressive performances.
