Kylian Mbappe 'tells PSG to make move' for close friend and former AS Monaco teammate
| Last updated
Kylian Mbappe has urged Paris Saint-Germain to make a move for one of his former AS Monaco teammates, according to stunning reports.
The 24-year-old is hoping PSG can reunite him with his old club colleague this summer.
The star forward shot to fame at Monaco, where he scored 26 goals in all competitions in the 2016/17 campaign.
Following their remarkable Champions League campaign, Mbappe and many of his teammates secured a move away from the club.
His future has since been the subject of intense transfer speculation, with reports claiming that Mbappe is trying to persuade PSG to bring the Portugal international to Paris, according to The Sun.
The 28-year-old is under contract with the Blues until 2025 and the club are unlikely to let him leave unless a big offer is tabled.
Mbappe himself has also been linked with a move away, but if he stays at PSG, he would love Silva to join him for the 2023/24 term.
Mbappe and Silva enjoyed a spell together at Monaco, with the Man City ace blown away by the then-16-year-old during his first training session at the club.
"So, Kylian when he arrived, when he arrived at the first team for the first training sessions he was like 16-years-old," revealed Silva.
"I remember after the first or the second training session that he had with us, I remember going to (Joao) Moutinho and both of us were like 'wow, who is that kid?'"
The 28-year-old added: "He was really special, because you could see from the beginning that was different.
"And he wasn't afraid of coming at us, coming at the older guys and dribbling two or three guys in the training session.
"Normally when you're 16-years-old you're a bit afraid of the big guys, and he would go at the defenders and just kill them.
"So, yeah, then after two years he started playing more often with us and now he's one of the best players in the world."
