With the BBC reporting that Mbappe has informed Paris Saint-Germain that he will leave the side at the end of the season, Madrid are in pole position to make him their new player.

If the former World Cup winner is undecided about a move to the Spanish capital, there are players he can turn to for advice.

Sports Brief looks at three former and three current Los Blancos stars Mbappe has played alongside.

Real Madrid stars Mbappe has played with

Sergio Ramos (Former)

A veteran of 16 seasons at Madrid, Ramos was one of those players that embodied the club.

He won 22 trophies with the Spanish side, according to Transfermarkt, and remains one of the most successful players to represent the team.

Ramos moved to PSG in 2021 and won a few more trophies alongside Mbappe before heading to Sevilla.

Ferland Mendy (Current)

While Mendy has only made nine appearances for the French national team, he has played alongside Mbappe, who is the current team’s captain.

A highly rated defender, he is even considered 'the Mbappe of left-backs', GOAL noted.

Mendy also played for PSG for a short while, in the youth setup, but was released through an injury concern. The former Le Havre player has featured 156 times for Madrid since joining in 2019.

Marco Asensio (Former)

The Spanish star played 286 games for Madrid before leaving for France, winning 16 trophies in the process.

He was never considered a key starter during his time in Spain but made some impactful contributions off the bench.

He eventually left Carlo Ancelotti’s side in 2023 and has since made quite the impact with the Ligue 1 champions. Asensio and Mbappe have already linked up well in attack, leaving fans with hope that there is more to come.

Eduardo Camavinga (Current)

The midfielder is one of France and Madrid’s stars of the future. At only 21, Camavinga is already earning rave reviews for his performances.

Having played alongside Mbappe with Les Bleus, he would be thrilled to play alongside him in Spain. He made the admission while on international duty last year, as rumours that Mbappe would leave PSG were starting to swirl, GOAL reported.

"I would be very happy if he were to come to Real Madrid. He is a great player. Everyone would want Mbappé in their team," Camavinga said at the time.

Angel di Maria (Former)

The Argentinian attacker played for the Spanish side from 2010 and left in 2014 when Mbappe was just 16.

The former Manchester United player made 190 appearances for the team and won six trophies with them before moving on to France.

He joined PSG in 2015, two years before the French talent joined the side. Di Maria only left five years later, giving him enough time to play alongside the former Monaco striker.

As noted by All Football, di Maria even tipped Mbappe to win the Ballon d’Or at some stage.

Aurelien Tchouameni (Current)

Tchouameni shares the dressing room with Mbappe at an international level and confirmed that he’d had discussions with the PSG star about his future.

The 24-year-old also added that if Mbappe were to divulge his plans for his future, he (Tchouameni) would not disclose it, PSG Talk reported.

“If Mbappé announced his decision to me for next season, to me personally? No. And even if he had told me, I wouldn’t have said it,” he explained.

Tchouameni's contract expires in 2028, giving him plenty of time to play with Mbappe at club level if the French star moves to Madrid.

Mbappe delivers bad news to PSG

Sports Brief also previously reported that Mbappe announced to PSG his intentions to depart the Ligue 1 champions at the end of the season.

The French captain has made over 250 appearances for the side since joining from AS Monaco, scoring an impressive 243 goals during that time.

Real Madrid remain favourites to sign the attacker, but English sides like Arsenal and Liverpool have also been linked with a move for the player.
