  • Real Madrid have been linked with a move for Kylian Mbappe for many seasons now
  • Ethan Mbappe's contract with Paris Saint-Germain also expires at the season's end
  • The La Liga giants are reportedly interested in bringing the 17-year-old to the team

Real Madrid are seemingly not just satisfied with one Mbappe.

The Spanish side have been linked with a move for Kylian for the past few seasons, but could they also land his little brother?

Ethan Mbappe’s contract with PSG expires at the end of the season, and Real Madrid could make a move for the 17-year-old as he looks to get more game time under his belt.

He has only made three appearances for the senior side, but 90 MIN reports both he and the Ligue 1 champions are focused on ensuring he gets more game time in France.

Would Ethan leave PSG?

Despite the interest from the La Liga giants, the younger Mbappe appears to be happy to stay in France. The 17-year-old is leaning towards staying, even if his brother leaves, but game time remains his biggest wish.

PSG Talk noted that Ethan has not featured in the Paris-based club’s matchday squad since Kylian announced he would be leaving at the end of the season.

Coach, Luis Enrique, also joked with the youngster about his plans, asking if he would join his brother in leaving. The youngster smiled and said that he was staying in France.

The news could come as a bit of a blow to Madrid but considering that they haven’t announced Kylian’s signing as yet, there is nothing to say they won’t unveil both Mbappes at the end of the season.

Mbappe benched as PSG drop points

Sports Brief previously reported how PSG were held to a 2-2 draw by Reims in a Ligue 1 encounter, which saw Kylian Mbappe benched for the game.

The French attacker scored in midweek as the French side beat Real Sociedad in the UEFA Champions League and was rested for the Reims game.

Mbappe has found himself on the bench more and more recently after announcing that he would be leaving the side at the end of the current season.
