Guess which Real Madrid legend took the iconic picture of Kylian Mbappe with CR7?

Kylian Mbappe’s affection towards Real Madrid has been apparent for quite some time now.

Fans put together bits and pieces that suggested the Frenchmen’s Merengue fandom even before he admitted it.

Viral pictures of a young Mbappe’s room adorned with posters of idol and Los Blancos legend Cristiano Ronaldo further strengthened the claim.

His desire to move to his dream club manifested with him rejecting several lucrative contract extensions and expressing his wish to leave PSG. While the transfer saga may go on and on, his love affair with Real Madrid continues to flourish.

His newly released comic autobiography ‘Je m’appelle Kylian’ features the tale of a young Mbappe’s visit to Santiago Bernabeu and meeting his hero.

The comic also reveals the story behind the iconic picture containing a jubilant Mbappe next to his idol Ronaldo.

As if this story doesn’t tread along the lines of being a fairytale already, the comic also reveals that the picture was taken by none other than Zinedine Zidane.

His exuberance regarding the trip culminated on the flight back to France.

As pictured in the comic, this exchange goes to show just how memorable the trip was for Kylian.

Kylian to his father: ‘What did the Real Madrid officials say to you?’
His father replies: ‘It doesn’t matter, did you have a good weekend?’ Kylian: ‘the best of my life.’

Mbappe certainly is keen on a move to Madrid, whether it comes to fruition or not remains to be seen. However, his adoration for Los Blancos remains indisputable.
