Kylian Mbappe has been making headlines on and off the pitch in recent months as he edges closer to a decision regarding his future.
The 23 year old has been heavily linked with a move away from PSG to Spanish champions, Real Madrid. PSG are trying their best to keep their star man but the expectations are that Mbappe will leave the club when his contract ends in the summer.
The Frenchman is one of the best players in the world, and there are no surprises that all eyes are on his every move. Mbappe made a trip to Madrid amid all the rumours about his future.
Mbappe’s teammate at PSG, Marco Verratti recalled seeing Mbappe in Madrid made him feel ‘sick’.
Verratti said to Le Parisien: “It will have an impact on the club, whatever his decision will be. He’s one of the best players on the planet right now so we all want him to stay here.”
“But when I speak with him, it’s more just to have a laugh. In football, when you have something on your mind, if a decision is coming up, you don’t talk about it.”
“It’s his decision, and I’m waiting for it like you are. When I was on my day off and I saw a notification saying that Kylian is in Madrid, it made me sick [laughs]. Even if afterwards he told me: 'Don’t worry, I was on holiday'. We’re all waiting to find out.”
Verratti was asked if he offered any advice to Mbappe, to which he replied: “No, because he knows what I think, I wouldn’t be a good advisor, in any case not an objective one. I wouldn’t be thinking about his own good, but that of everyone here in Paris."
Mbappe is due to announce his next move in the coming days, with the whole football world waiting in great anticipation of the Frenchman’s next move.
