Ibrahimovic has never been afraid to speak his mind and he has told of how he once advised Mbappe to sign for Real Madrid, although he also then warned Paris Saint-Germain president Nasser Al-Khelaifi not to sell him.
The Swedish striker spent four years in Paris, but he left a year before Mbappe arrived from Monaco.

"He needs a more structured environment, like the one at Real Madrid.
"But then I told the PSG president not to sell him."
