Everyone has heard of the Galácticos. The likes of David Beckham, Ronaldo, Luis Figo and Zinedine Zidane defined an era for Real Madrid where everyone wanted to play for them and everyone wanted to be them.
Just over 20 years and the new Galáctico era could be about to start. With Kylian Mbappe looking close to a move to the Bernabeu, would this make Real Madrid an unstoppable force?
Ever since Mbappe made his debut at Monaco as a 16-year-old in 2016, the sky has been the limit for the Frenchman. In his first full season for the side from the principality, Mbappe and his Monaco side stormed the league. Losing just three games all season, Monaco won their eighth league title, beating nearest challengers PSG by eight points.
Mbappe’s stats ever since the title-winning season with Monaco has been astonishing. Contributing 281 goals in 255 club games, Mbappe has won countless league titles and also triumphed on the world stage, winning the 2018 world cup with Les Bleus.
