Kylian Mbappe blasts ‘rumours’ over his future amid Real Madrid links while Luis Enrique admits ‘I’m not really happy’ with his performance against Reims… despite the France skipper scoring a HAT-TRICK!

  • PSG star Kylian Mbappe will become a free agent next summer as things stand
  • He has been heavily linked to Real Madrid but brushed off questions about future

Paris Saint-Germain forward Kylian Mbappe has claimed there have been ‘too many rumours’ amid uncertainty over his future and would prefer to not ‘add fuel to the fire’. 

The French superstar will become a free agent at the end of the season as things stand and should he fail to agree new terms with the Ligue 1 side, there will be a host of elite clubs queuing up to secure one of the world’s best players for free. 

He endured a tense relationship with his club over the summer amid uncertainty over his future and at one point he was banished to play with the B-team. Saudi Arabian outfit Al-Hilal even lodged a world record £257million, but the player opted against moving to the Middle East.

Mbappe has since resolved matters with PSG and returned to the first team – going on to score 13 goals in 10 Ligue 1 starts , looking to brush off questions around his future. 

But links to Real Madrid, who look to be favourites to land him, have continued and the 24-year-old has insisted he does not want to keep talking about his future.

‘Have I come to terms with my summer? The most important thing is playing football, you (the media) do the rest well,’ Mbappe said after PSG’s 3-0 win over Reims. 

‘I don’t want to talk about it and add fuel to the fire. I think there is already too many rumours.’

Last week, Real released an unusual statement to deny rumours that they’ve been in talks with Mbappe. 

The club said: ‘Given the information recently issued and published by different media outlets, in which there is speculation about alleged negotiations between the player Kylian Mbappe and our club, Real Madrid CF would like to state that this information is completely false and that no such negotiations have taken place with a player who belongs to PSG.’ 

That was followed by reports this week which stated Real have cooled their interest in the player, as per Cadena Ser. 

Mbappe continued his impressive form by scoring a hat-trick in a 3-0 win over Reims on Saturday. But manager Luis Enrique was left unhappy with the forward. 

‘I’m not really happy with Kylian today. I have nothing to say about the goals but he can help the team more in different ways. I’m going to talk to him about it first. I’ll never tell you what it’s about, it’s private,’ the Spaniard told Prime Video Sport.
