France President Emmanuel Macron discusses Kylian Mbappe’s transfer to Real Madrid after dinner with PSG star

The ongoing transfer saga of Paris Saint-Germain forward Kylian Mbappé is creating a buzz worldwide. Following the announcement of his departure from Parc des Princes in June, when his two-year contract extension concludes as per club manager Luis Enrique, the Parisians are already preparing for life without him.

The Frenchman is highly sought after by top clubs, with Manchester United offering a €700 million package deal. However, Mbappé is inching closer to joining his dream club, Real Madrid, as Spain remains his preferred destination. Amid this, he was invited by French President Emmanuel Macron for dinner at the Elysee Palace.

In the midst of his transfer reports, the 25-year-old forward was present at the French President’s residence, the Élysée Palace, to meet the Emir of Qatar Sheikh Tamim bin Hamad Al-Thani on Tuesday evening. Emmanuel Macron made a humorous remark directed at the player as they shook hands with the Qatari guest.

“You are going to create more trouble for us,” the president said to Mbappé, though the exact context of Macron’s words remains unknown. However, it is believed to be related to his decision to leave the French capital to pursue a move to Santiago Bernabéu, following prolonged speculations.

Macron and Kylian Mbappé share a strong bond, with the French national team captain having previously been invited to the Élysée Palace and hailed as a hero across the country. The president has played a significant role in convincing the player to continue with PSG in the summer of 2021.
