Scoring a remarkable hat-trick in France’s spectacular 14-0 victory over Gibraltar, Kylian Mbappé faced questions about his future after the match. The captain of the French national team expressed frustration and refused to discuss his plans at the moment.
In a night where Mbappé achieved a perfect hat-trick, including a lob from the midfield marking his 300th career goal, the 24-year-old player delivered an outstanding performance against Gibraltar. With three assists to his name as well, Mbappé showcased his skills against a team reduced to 10 players after only 20 minutes of play. As his contract with PSG approaches its conclusion in a few months, Mbappé, as usual, finds himself at the center of speculation. After the game, the former AS Monaco striker was questioned about his future by Téléfoot. The flamboyant scorer refused to provide any hints about his next destination.
“It’s something I don’t want to talk about, especially since I did it already in June, and it took up a big part of the selection. I really want us to talk about the national team. We have very good results. I want us to talk about that rather than me, about something that will be settled one day. There will be time to talk about that,” admitted the World Cup champion, maintaining his discreet stance on his future, which is expected to unfold around the summer of 2024.
The Euro and the Olympics are significant goals in the French international’s season (74 caps). Between extending his contract in Paris and a potential move to Real Madrid, the two options for Mbappé are clear. However, the AS Bondy academy graduate continues to shroud his intentions in mystery, promising to reveal his decision in a few months. Meanwhile, he has spoken on multiple occasions in recent days, but not specifically about this topic.
