Kylian Mbappe to Real Madrid. Rating: 3.8
Mbappe is a young player from France who has played for Monaco in the Ligue 1 for 1.5 years. He has such a high value because he is only 18 and has the potential to be one of the best strikers in the world. Mbappe got a new number, and some people are saying that Monaco is making a hint that Mbappe is staying.
Mesut Ozil to Barcelona. Rating: 1.6
Ozil could be moving to Barcelona from Arsenal, but the deal would be unlikely. Ozil was the club transfer record breaker when he signed from Real Madrid in 2013. And Ozil is probably the second best player on Arsenal behind Alexis Sanchez, and with Sanchez’s future unclear, Ozil would be the star of the team if Sanchez leaves.
