Transfer: Real Madrid attacker will request to leave Bernabeu if Mbappe joins club

Real Madrid winger Rodrygo will ask to leave Santiago Bernabeu if Kylian Mbappe joins the club, according to El Nacional.

The potential arrival of Mbappe has cast uncertainty over Rodrygo’s future, leading him to contemplate a departure from Real Madrid.

Rodrygo believes his playing time and role within Carlo Ancelotti’s side would likely diminish significantly if and when Mbappe joins Real Madrid.

The Brazilian international has carefully considered the potential scenario and has requested the Spanish La Liga giants to give him the freedom to negotiate with other clubs.

Rodrygo has established himself as a key player in Real Madrid’s squad.

He has made 137 appearances for Real Madrid and scored 37 goals, and provided 32 assists so far.
