Real Madrid’s Ex-president has talked about the team and their president.

Ramon Calderon

says that

Real Madrid

in the Summer as he enters his contract’s last year and could be brought with a good price.


Without a doubt, Mbappe is the player most desired by all and it would be great news for our team,"

"It is never easy to hire a major player, but it was surprisingly easy and very cheap to sign Ruud van Nistelrooy from Manchester United," he says. "We only paid €12m ($14m/£11m) for him and, without a doubt, he was one of the best performers for the team.

"He is a great person, good team-mate, a leader of the dressing room and an extraordinary player. He helped us a lot to win two consecutive leagues and a Super Cup, having not won a single title in three years."
