Kylian Mbappe provides one specific reason for snubbing Arsenal

Since lifting the World Cup trophy at just 19, Kylian Mbappe has established himself as the world’s best player. The striker has been at the center of the most talked-about transfer saga in recent times, with two European powerhouses, Paris Saint-Germain and Real Madrid, both vying for his signature.

Mbappé rocketed to the status of a generational talent while playing for Ligue 1 outfit AS Monaco in the 2016–17 season. He then made a high-profile move to join the Parisians in 2017. As he now approaches the end of his tenure in Paris, he candidly dismissed the possibility of a move to England.

Kylian Mbappe responds to Arsenal transfer request

The 25-year-old forward has decided to depart from Parc des Princes as a free agent this summer, following his decision not to sign a new contract with the French champions. Earlier reports confirmed that he had informed the club’s top hierarchy of his intention to part ways.

PSG president, Nasser Al-Khelaifi, has thrown his support behind Luis Enrique after the Spanish manager reduced Kylian Mbappé’s playing time and confirmed that the French international would not continue under his management in the French capital. Since then, there has been widespread speculation that top European teams are keenly monitoring Mbappe.

Moreover, Premier League giants Arsenal have also shown interest in the former Monaco standout. Furthermore, the Gunners’ boss, Mikel Arteta, hasn’t dismissed the possibility of the Frenchman’s arrival at the Emirates Stadium. However, North London is seemingly not at the top of Mbappe’s priority list, and his reasoning behind this is London’s grim weather. 

In a recent viral clip, the French forward candidly dismissed the idea of a move to Arsenal during an honest exchange with a young fan. When the Gunners’ supporters implored Mbappé to “Come to Arsenal,” the striker responded with an amusing reaction. With a beaming smile, he replied, “Arsenal? Ah, there’s no way, there’s no way. It’s too cold there.”

Kylian Mbappe likely to move to Real Madrid

Unsurprisingly, the Frenchman has been a top target for Spanish giants Real Madrid, who have kept a close eye on Kylian Mbappé since his breakthrough season at Monaco. Over the years, their interest has only grown significantly.

After years of speculation, Mbappé’s dream move to Santiago Bernabéu seems more possible. As per reports, the French international is on the verge of joining Los Blancos next summer on a reported five-year deal, positioning him as their top earner. 

His addition would further bolster their already formidable roster, which features some of the world’s most outstanding attacking talents, including Vinicius Jr., Jude Bellingham, Rodrygo, Brahim Diaz, and the Brazilian Wonderkid, Endrik, ahead of the 2024–25 season.
