French football star Kylian Mbappe revealed that his colleague and compatriot Lucas Hernandez tried to persuade him to join Bayern Munich.
In an interview with the German sports newspaper “Sport Bild”, the Paris Saint-Germain player said that “Lucas told me that I should move to Munich.”
In answering a question about whether he could imagine joining Bayern, Mbappe, 22, replied confirming that he would not move to Real Madrid this summer, as reported by some reports, and said, “In football, one never knows what will happen, but I am very happy now.” I put it as it is.”
At the same time, Mbappe said that Bayern Munich in any case “is one of the top 5 clubs in the world, and has a clear plan that made it a great club, and it is always a candidate to win every championship, and if I want to win a title I must beat Bayern permanently in the future”.
Mbappe’s contract with the French capital club expires in 2022, and he moved in 2018 from Saint Monaco to Paris Saint-Germain for 145 million euros, in the second most expensive deal in the history of sports after the deal of his Brazilian international teammate Neymar (222 million euros).
The club’s president, Nasser Al-Khelaifi, announced that Mbappe “is not for sale” these days, and confirmed that “he will never leave the club.”
With regard to the European Nations Cup, which is approaching, Mbappe said that his country’s match against the German national team is considered the most difficult group match “because it is our first match,” adding that the Germans have “skill with the inclusion of many young players who have excessive ambition, with the return of players Like Thomas Muller. Of course they have an excellent goalkeeper which is very important to me.” Mbappe said Manuel Neuer was “one of the best goalkeepers in the history of football.”
About the teams nominated to win the tournament, in his opinion, Mbappe said, “France, Portugal, Germany, England, Spain, Italy and the Netherlands.”
