Mbappe: Real Madrid is a Ballon D’Or machine, you have to admit it

The Frenchman also revealed who he thought would win this year.

Forward Kylian Mbappe of PSG and the France National Team gave an interview to the French journal L'Équipe in which he covered a variety of topics, including his thoughts on Real Madrid's advertising apparatus.

“Real Madrid is a Ballon d’Or machine, you have to admit it,” Mbappe told L’Équipe. “The important thing is to have my feet on the ground, but I’m still convinced that one day I’ll be able to win it at PSG.

“Does (the team) influence (the award)? Yes, of course. Especially in the last eight or nine years. It’s part of the puzzle. You have the support of your teammates, your club, your coach ... and you have the communication and pressure piece. Real Madrid knows how to do it very well. Almost every year they manage to convince you that their player is the number one candidate. when the refrain is repeated every day, especially when the voting period approaches, it can have its small influence...”

Mbappe also shared his opinions on who should place first, second, and third in the Balon D'or voting.

“My top 3? I would say Benzema, me and Mané,” Mbappe explained. “Karim is 34 years old, he has just had the season of his life, he has won another Champions League in which he has been decisive. If he doesn’t take it, I’ll stop believing in the Ballon d’Or forever”.

Kylian Mbabbe who was recently linked with a move to Real Madrid but chose to stay in Paris has just admitted that Real Madrid is a Ballon d'Or machine, however, he still believes that he will win it while in Paris. Mbabbe is on point because CR7 won 4 of his Ballon d'Or awards during his time at Real Madrid and in 2018 the Croatian midfielder maetro Luka Modric also won his first Ballon d'Or as a Madrid player.
