Mother of Monaco's Kylian Mbappe, Fayza Lamari, has reportedly spoken of where she wants her son to be playing his football next season - claiming that Real Madrid would be the best destination for the 18-year-old.
This time last year, very few people knew of Kylian Mbappe, and no one could've imagined the meteoric rise that the youngster would soon undergo. After scoring 26 goals for his club last season (six of which arrived in the Champions League), the biggest clubs around Europe are vying for his signature.
And now, according to France Football, Mbappe's mum has gone on record saying that she thinks a switch to La Liga champions Real Madrid would be the best for her son.
She is believed to have been wooed by the efforts that they have made over in the Spanish capital to attract Mbappe to the Bernabeu - with both Madrid president Florentino Perez and manager Zinedine Zidane making personal appearances to try and persuade Mbappe to move.
While reports might be claiming that it's looking more and more likely that Mbappe will stay with the Ligue 1 champions Monaco, a lot can happen between now and September, and players can be very easily influenced by those closest to them - so his mother's opinion may well become quite an important one.
Zidane and co. over in Spain will be hoping that is the case, anyway.
Mbappe even came out the last week and claimed that he himself was unsure where his future lies. Either way, he still has plenty of time to make a decision.
