Real Madrid’s captain Daniel Carvajal: Mbappe joining us will be good for LaLiga

Daniel Carvajal became the latest Real Madrid player to comment on the potential transfer of Kylian Mbappe. Los Blancos’ captain broached the subject of the French forward just days after teammates Tchouameni, Camavinga, and Jude Bellingham were caught on video having a friendly chat about two of football’s premier attacking talents, Erling Haaland and Kylian Mbappe. Carvajal, in his remarks, hinted at the growing buzz within the club’s ranks about the possibility of Mbappe’s arrival in the summer, expressing both his and potentially the squad’s anticipation for such a high-profile signing.

“The club hasn’t told us anything about Mbappe. But it seems like it’s a possibility to see Mbappe joining Real in the summer, yes…”. The Spanish defender didn’t hide his excitement at the prospect, adding, “It’d be great to have him here, he’s a top player. It’s top news for Real but also for the entire La Liga.”

A couple of days prior to Carvajal’s words, Real Madrid’s young stars, Eduardo Camavinga, Aurelien Tchouameni, and Jude Bellingham, were caught engaging in a friendly yet revealing debate over who the better footballer between Erling Haaland and Kylian Mbappe is. Bellingham’s comments in the video, where he mentioned Haaland being a great guy and a better footballer than “Tchouameni and Camavinga’s boy”, obviously referring to Mbappe, highlight the players’ high regard for both talents but also point towards the anticipation surrounding Mbappe’s potential move to Madrid.

The mood inside Real Madrid’s camp is undeniably high, with the team leading LaLiga by a comfortable eight-point margin over second-placed Barcelona. In the Champions League, Los Blancos are set to face Manchester City in the quarter-finals, with the first leg scheduled for April 9th at Santiago Bernabeu, and the return leg for April 17th in Manchester.
