INSIDER: Zidane told Mbappe in London 'you have to play for Real Madrid'

Zinedine Zidane has urged PSG striker Kylian Mbappe to choose Real Madrid as his next club.

That's the claim of Okdiario's chief pundit Eduardo Inda, speaking on El Chiringuito.

Inda revealed last night that Zidane spoke with Mbappe at the FIFA gala in London and a witness says the former Real coach urged the striker to make the move to the Spanish giants.

Zidane was up for The Best award for Coach of the Year, while Mbappe was attending as a nominee for Team of the Year.

"In the preliminaries of the gala, Zidane met with Mbappé and there was a witness," Inda declared. "The former Real Madrid coach has told him verbatim: 'Kylian, you have to play for Real Madrid'."
