In his words when speaking during a webinar which was hosted by Spanish financial institution, Santander, he said; "Right now, it is not that one is better than another, but if Real Madrid had to make a big investment, they should do so thinking about the future. Neymar is 28 years old and Mbappe is 22. As an investment, it would be more logical to bring the younger of the two."
