In 2012, Pierre Mbappe traveled around some of Europe’s biggest clubs with his young nephew, Kylian, including Real Madrid, where the youngster trained for a week.

The soon-to-be the most expensive teenager in world football joined Ligue 1 giants PSG last summer after an initial move to Barcelona fell through.

However, he had always been a lifelong fan or Los Blancos and had the chance to sign for the Spanish giants early on.

“I’m very grateful to Kylian. I never imagined my 13-year-old nephew would take me Real Madrid or Chelsea, but he did just that. From a selfish point of view, I had the huge pleasure of meeting trainers like Ancelotti, and Zidane”, he said.

It was at this point that the Mbappé family made the decision to turn Real Madrid down and return to France in order for the young player to continue his development surrounded by his family.

“You can get to Madrid and start from the back of the queue. The whole world then forgets about you”.

Pierre also reiterated that Kylian Mbappe signed for PSG for sporting, not financial, reasons:

“I laugh when people say he chose PSG for the money,” he told L’Équipe.

Mbappe’s love for Real, and Ronaldo, is made evident by pictures taken of him at his home in the Parisian suburb of Bondy, aged 14.

“It’s easier to say no to Real Madrid when you don’t have to worry so much about money. That’s true, and Kylian has grown up in a comfortable environment”, he added.
