Mbappe was Real Madrid’s No1 transfer target in the summer after firing Monaco to the Ligue 1 title.
However, the France international sensationally ended up staying in his homeland, signing for Unai Emery’s Paris Saint-Germain instead.
Many were surprised that Madrid – a club renowned for signing the biggest and best players – were unable to get a deal for Mbappe over the line.
But Spanish website Diario Gol has claimed that Cristiano Ronaldo was the reason the teenager did not make the move to La Liga.
Ronaldo has been Real’s main man ever since arriving from Manchester United back in 2009.

Which stars are most likely to join Real Madrid in January?
During that time the 32-year-old has fired Los Blancos to three Champions League titles, as well as La Liga triumph’s in 2012 and 2017.
However, as a result of his own lofty status, Ronaldo did not want Mbappe to join him in Spain.
But Diario Gol say, mere months after Mbappe joined PSG, that decision has rankled with club president Perez.
It is said he is furious that Ronaldo now wants to leave the club.
The Portugal international was widely expected to depart this summer after being accused of tax evasion by Spanish authorities.
And his form has waned in the time since, with Ronaldo scoring just one league goal all season.

Perez is livid at the fact he still wants to go – particularly as he stopped the club landing Mbappe.
Meanwhile, journalist Edu Aguirre insists Ronaldo is feeling unloved in his current surroundings.
“Cristiano has already told the club he wants to leave,” he told El Chiringuito.
“He is very angry about the offer of renewal, he considers that he needs more affection, the club does not value him.
“He told Florentino Perez to facilitate the departure for a small fee."
