Kylian Mbappe has refused to answer a question about his future at Paris Saint-Germain while on international duty with France.
Mbappe scored a hat-trick in France’s 14-0 demolition of Gibraltar on Saturday night and is now preparing to play for his country against Greece on Tuesday. But his future at PSG remains a hot topic of conversation which refuses to die down, even while away with Les Bleus.
“It’s something I don’t want to talk about, especially since I already did it in June and it took up a big part of the selection,” Mbappe told Telefoot. “I want us to talk more about the national team, rather than me talking about something that will be resolved one day, so there will be time to talk about that.”
Mbappe is under contract with PSG until the end of the season, when the much-touted move to Real Madrid could finally come about. Real failed with offers of £137million (€160m) and £145.5m (€170m) in the summer of 2021 and Mbappe then came close to joining the Spanish giants the following year on a free transfer before signing a new deal with PSG.
Mbappe flirted with Real again this summer and was briefly frozen out of the first team in pre-season after sending a letter to his employers to inform them he wouldn’t sign a new contract. He eventually made peace with PSG president Nasser Al-Khelaifi, yet the speculation is refusing to die down as each day passes.
La Liga chief Javier Tebas expects Mbappe to join Real in the summer transfer window. Asked if he was convinced it would happen, Tebas said in September: “Convinced, convinced, no. But it is a destiny for him, for sure. Next year it will be more than 70-80 per cent.”
However, recent reports from the Spanish capital suggest that there could still be some complicationsRead on m.allfootballapp.com
