‘I’m not sure if Real Madrid is the perfect place for him’ – Marcel Desailly advises Kylian Mbappé to go to Saudi Arabia – Get French Football News

Kylian Mbappé’s (25) next destination has not been revealed but it may soon be. The France captain informed Paris Saint-Germain president Nasser Al-Khelaifi that he would not be extending his stay at the Parc des Princes beyond the end of his current contract, which expires at the end of the season, in February. As a result, a summer move is a certainty. 

However, there is yet to be an official announcement. It is expected that, two years after rejecting them, Mbappé will join Real Madrid this summer. The move could be made official soon. Following Tuesday’s defeat against Borussia Dortmund, it is now impossible for Mbappé to face his former club. This hypothesis has been holding up the officialisation of Mbappé’s move to the Bernabeu, according to the BBC. 

Football’s worst-kept secret will soon become a fact. However, speaking on beIn Sport, former France international Marce Desailly has warned his compatriot against a move to Los Blancos. “I’ve said it already [if I were Mbappé], I’d move to another continent,” said Desailly, in the wake of the PSG forward’s disappointing display against Borussia Dortmund. 

“I’m not sure if Real Madrid is the perfect place for him to be. There is Vinicius Jr. on the left-hand side, players who are showing great ability like Jude Bellingham  [too]. [Mbappé] will not be the full No.1 the way that he wants [to be]. Technically, if you’re thinking about the business of football, I would go to Saudi for €350m for a year, come back next season, the year of the World Cup,” said Desailly. 

It is unlikely that Mbappé, who turned down a world record move to the Gulf State last summer, will follow the advice of his compatriot.
