Kylian Mbappe teases future Real Madrid move

Published

Theheute-

Kylian Mbappe has refused to rule out a future transfer to Real Madrid, admitting that the club “feels like your house.”

After his previous contract with Paris Saint-Germain expired this summer, it was widely anticipated that the French forward would join the Santiago Bernabeu on a free transfer. Instead, he signed a massive three-year extension with the Ligue 1 giants.

Mbappe made his decision after speaking with French President Emmanuel Macron, who got involved in the transfer saga in an effort to persuade Mbappe to reject Real’s advances.

“I never imagined I’m gonna talk with the president about my future, about my future in my career, so it’s something crazy, really something crazy,” he told The New York Times. “He told me: ‘I want you to stay. I don’t want you to leave now. You are so important for the country’.”

Mbappe also revealed that Macron told him: “You have time to leave, you can stay a little bit more.”

Mbappe acknowledged the effect Los Blancos have had on him personally and left the door open for a future transfer when asked if playing for Real was still appealing to him.

“You never know what’s going to happen,” he said. “You’ve never been there, but it seems like it’s like your house, or something like this.”

La Liga and Ligue 1 engaged in a protracted legal dispute over Mbappe’s decision to re-sign with PSG because La Liga believed financial fair play regulations must have been broken to offer the striker such a lucrative contract.

There have been numerous claims that Mbappe only stayed with PSG for the money, but he refuted those claims by stating:”Everywhere I go, I’m going to get money. I’m this type of player everywhere I go.”

Additionally, he acknowledged that he had been “annoyed” by claims that he had asked for a say in who would lead the team as coach or which of his teammates should be sold.

“That’s not my job,” he said. “And I don’t want to do this because I’m not good at it. I’m good on the pitch. Outside the pitch, that’s not my role. There are so many people that are better than me.”
