Fabio Cannavaro is convinced Real Madrid need 'a young star' like Kylian Mbappe so he 'can follow in the footsteps of Cristiano Ronaldo.' Mbappe has been linked with a move away from PSG, with Los Blancos reportedly interested in signing the France international - who has won three Ligue 1 titles since moving to Parc des Princes from AS Monaco in 2017. However, former Juventus defender Cannavaro says it will be difficult for the Spanish giants to sign the 21-year-old as Paris Saint-Germain 'will fight tooth and nail to keep' one of their most valued assets. "Real Madrid need players like Mbappe, a young star who could follow in the footsteps of Cristiano Ronaldo," the Guangzhou Evergrande coach Cannavaro, who won two LaLiga titles with Real Madrid, told AS.
