Angel Di Maria has said Kylian Mbappe made the right call to stay at Paris Saint-Germain, but insists the forward still has plenty of time left in his career to sign for Real Madrid.
Mbappe has snubbed a move to the LaLiga giants, after agreeing a new three-year contract at PSG.
Madrid were confident of signing the 23-year-old as a free agent, after he pushed to join the club last summer, but have been left stunned by his surprise U-turn.
“I think he has made the right decision,” Di Maria, who played for Madrid between 2010 and 2014, told reporters after the Metz game.
“He is still young and has time to go to Madrid, he has time to go wherever he wants, he has only signed three more years and he will be 26, he has a lot ahead of him.
“He likes to make history and he will continue to make history here, he is close to 200 goals.”
