Aston Villa manager, Steven Gerrard believes PSG star, Kylian Mbappe may live to regret his decision not to join Real Madrid.
Recall that Mbappe recently opted to extend his stay with PSG, despite being heavily pursued by Real Madrid for quite some time.
Real Madrid were the frontrunner to sign the France international this summer.
But Mbappe decided against a move to the Santiago Bernabeu and signed a new deal with the Parisians till 2025.

And Gerrard believes the Frenchman might already be ruing his decision.
“He (Mbappe) is definitely thinking he is a little bit richer for sure! But from a football decision, I do think in his quiet moment tonight if he has watched that game [Liverpool vs Real Madrid], he will think to himself, ‘I have just turned down the chance to join a club that has won 14 European Cups’, and they’re going to be back because they recruit top players,” said Gerrard on BT Sport.
He added: “They (Real Madrid) have got the know-how; they have got the demand to win it; they are going to win more. They have got the pull, have not they; they’ve got the pull worldwide. They are a giant in the game.
“They have got the pull where recruitment-wise, if a club like Real Madrid comes along for you, 99 times out of 100, you go.”
Mbappe’s Style Of Play
Mbappé has been described by Arsène Wenger as a “huge football talent” who “has similarities to Thierry Henry“. His talent and precocious performances for France at the 2018 World Cup also led him to be compared to Pelé in the media. A versatile forward, Mbappé often plays as a winger, and is capable of playing on either flank, due to his ability with both feet.
He is capable of cutting into the centre onto his stronger right foot from the left wing, and is also capable of creating chances and providing assists for teammates from the right due to his vision. He is also able to play in the centre as a main striker, due to his composure, clinical finishing, and eye for goal.
