Actual Madrid able to take big switch gamble as Perez “completely obsessed” with delivering one famous person signing
Real Madrid president Florentino Perez is reportedly obsessed with the idea of signing Paris Saint-Germain superstar Kylian Mbappe.
In fact, a deal for Mbappe is so important to the Spanish giant that he is willing to risk not signing a new center-back this summer in order to afford the France international, according to The Athletic.
This is despite the fact that Madrid have already lost Sergio Ramos this summer while Raphael Varane will also follow after Manchester United announced on their official website that they have struck a deal for him.
It seems very risky not to make a new defender a top priority this summer, but it seems Real boss Perez is “completely obsessed” with introducing Mbappe, which could mean Los Blancos have to cut their spending elsewhere .

Perez is known for his penchant for signing ‘Galacticos’ and Mbappe would definitely fall into that category, giving the club the ideal long-term successor to legendary Cristiano Ronaldo.
The 22-year-old has had a great career so far and is also in the final year of his contract with PSG so it makes sense to have clubs like Real on alert.

Still, some Madrid fans are sure to wonder how useful it is to pursue the president’s preferred goal instead of thinking about finding the right balance across all areas of the squad.
Ramos and Varane were extremely important members of the team and will not be easy to replace, with The Athletic Villarreals citing Pau Torres as one of the names they came up with for the position.
