According to former Liverpool striker Michael Owen, Real Madrid may be able to compete with Manchester City and Liverpool in the UEFA Champions League if Kylian Mbappe joins the team from France.

Owen stated that Mbappe’s signing might be the answer for Real Madrid, who he claimed badly needed a centre-forward to compete with Manchester City and Liverpool.

The former England player lauded Madrid’s recent metamorphosis and suggested that Mbappe should play in the middle, with Jude Bellingham supporting him and Vinicius Junior on the left, to form a potent offensive combination.

According to Owen, Real Madrid would become “unbelievable” and experience a “great leveller” if they were to sign Mbappe.

“They have certainly got a team now that has gone from an aging team to now looking young and vibrant and it looks like that it could be here to stay. Manchester City, Liverpool and Real Madrid have just been locking horns now for the foreseeable maybe and that position looks like a big piece of the jigsaw at Madrid,” Owen said (via Football Espana).

“Mbappe can play off the left but with Vinicius Junior there, you would think that he is going to play down the middle and it could be an unbelievable strike force with Jude Bellingham in behind and playing off him… it could be an unbelievable team. But it will need to be unbelievable because Manchester City and Liverpool, for that matter, have set some real high standards at the moment.

“But signing Mbappe is a great leveler. He is unbelievable so I don’t think him fitting in will be a massive problem for Real Madrid. They have a glaring hole there and they need a centre-forward to score a load of goals, so why not go and pick the best one in the world and that is what they have done.”

Mbappe is expected to join Real Madrid at the end of the season after deciding not to extend his contract with Paris Saint-Germain.
