The French star was interviewed by CNN and talked about everything: PSG, playing with Lionel Messi and the possibility of moving football from him to Real Madrid.
Kylian Mbappe is on the crest of the wave. He was world champion at 18, the best young player and never stopped scoring goals. The only thing missing is the Champions League and with Paris Saint-Germain they have done everything possible to conquer it.
They reached the final in the 2019/20 season and fell in the semifinals in the last edition. Inside doors, in France, they have won everything. The last Ligue 1 escaped them, but it seems that it did not matter. The owners of the club, Qatar Investments, have disbursed more than a billion dollars since their arrival, but have not been able to lift their ears.
Kylian Mbappe is his diamond in the rough. The French jewel that reveals to the world and for which they rejected an offer from Real Madrid for 188 million in August. Nasser Al-Khelaifi does not make too much trouble – he has paid 220 for Neymar – but from that moment there has been speculation about the free departure of the young French star.
Kylian’s contract expires in June 2021 and he can now freely negotiate with any club. In dialogue with CNN’s Connect to World’s, he was asked by Becky Anderson if he was thinking of moving to Real Madrid and Mbappé said:
“The only thing on my mind is to beat Real Madrid in Champions League. We are ready and I am ready to play and give everything for PSG”.
PSG is ahead of the knockout stages of the Champions League and, in its repetition after the scandal over the draw, it was Real Madrid. It will be a star duel and surely the most exciting of the phase. Mbappé will play for the first time at the Santiago Bernabéu and it will not be with the white jersey.
There was much speculation about Mbappé’s departure, but every time he speaks, he identifies with PSG. He was educated in Monaco, but was born on the outskirts of Paris and his dream was to play there. On the present he said:
“I’m in Paris Saint-Germain, I’m really happy and I will 100% finish the season as PSG player. I’ll give everything to win with Paris all titles this year. To play for PSG, it’s an amazing feeling to play with your family and friends alongside of you”.
The other player who will step on Madrid will be Lionel Messi. The Argentine star did what he wanted against the Whites with the Barcelona jersey. In that stadium he has scored three hattricks. With his arrival in Paris, he revolutionized French football and Kylian Mbappé spoke about how it feels to play with the best player in football history:
“It’s a big pleasure for me to say to my kids, to my friends, I play with him (Messi). We have to enjoy seeing him in Paris… It’s an amazing moment in the history of the game”.
