Kylian Mbappe to Real Madrid is a transfer that’s easier said than done. The Frenchman’s tryst with Real Madrid and potentially leaving Paris Saint-Germain in the summer have stolen all the headlines in the footballing community. While Kylian Mbappe to Real Madrid is no secret, another move, involving his brother Ethan Mbappe is also on the cards.

With his brother likely to follow in his footsteps to join Real Madrid, fans from the basketball community have drawn parallels to that of an NBA giant as well. Milwaukee Bucks star and well-known football fan Giannis Antetokounmpo is no stranger to the spotlight. Fans have noticed how Giannis’ signing was followed by the Bucks’ possession of his brother Thanasis Antetokounmpo.

The 31-year-old was re-united with his younger sibling Giannis, who happens to be the main man for the Milwaukee Bucks.

With Ethan Mbappe set to repeat the pattern, fans are hoping for something magical. The 17-year-old currently shares the locker room with PSG captain and brother Kylian Mbappe.

From European football to the NBA, fans are excited to see Ethan Mbappe join Real Madrid in the footsteps of his elder brother.

Another refuted the claim, saying that Mbappe’s brother is being signed by the club not just because he’s Mbappe’s sibling, but because he can actually ball. Real Madrid fans were quick to join the conversation, stating that a talent even half as good as Mbappe deserves to join their club. Some even said that a Stephen Curry X Seth Curry was more fitting for the two.

Here are some of the fan comments making rounds on the internet:

While Kylian Mbappe took most of the headlines, fans did not forget the possibility of Real bringing in Jude Bellingham‘s brother, Jobe Bellingham to the club. Many wondered of the possibility of two sets of siblings sharing the dressing room at Madrid. While the hype was very much over the roof, some fans were praying that Ethan doesn’t end up as a failure or flop at Madrid.
