Mbappe is told not to join Real Madrid

Kylian Mbappe’s future at Paris Saint-Germain has been the cause of much speculation over the past few months.

His contract expires at the end of this season, meaning he can sign a pre-contract agreement with any interested club from the start of January.

One of them is Real Madrid, with whom Mbappe has been heavily linked for some time. Florentino Perez has been desperate to take the 24-year-old to Los Blancos and at this stage, it looks increasingly likely that that wish will come true.

However, Mbappe has been told not to join Real Madrid by former Manchester City, Arsenal and Sevilla player Samir Nasri, who told Journal du Dimanche that he would be better off staying at PSG.

“He is from the Paris region. I would stay at PSG instead of going to Real Madrid to win the Champions League. If Marseille had been Qatari-owned when I was at the club, I would never have left. I think it is better to be king in your village”, he said.

Real Madrid will hope that Mbappe does not take Nasri’s advice, although there will be concerns given how the situation was more than two years ago when the player opted to stay at PSG.
