Liverpool’s hopes of securing Kylian Mbappé or another Premier League club joining the race suffered a significant setback.
RMC Sport pundit Jérôme Rothen dropped a brutal reality when discussing the Frenchman’s future.
Rothen was discussing the future of former Real Madrid manager Zinedine Zidane when the topic of the PSG star came up. The pundit noted that neither Mbappé nor Zidane want to go to the Premier League.
“Why does Zinedine Zidane not want to go to England? It’s just not the same life,” Rothen said (h/t Le10Sport).
“The living conditions, the language, that’s understandable. Look, Kylian Mbappé doesn’t want to go to England. Kylian Mbappé does not want to play in the best championship in the world.”
The latest report from Spanish media outlet Diario AS reveals that PSG has not extended a renewal offer to Mbappé.
They are pressuring him to declare his intentions regarding his future with the club.
In the coming hours, expect further updates on the 25-year-old’s potential transfer destination.
The saga is poised to involve Paris Saint-Germain and Real Madrid, leaving his ultimate decision shrouded in mystery.
As the UEFA Champions League tie against Real Sociedad approaches, the 2018 FIFA World Cup winner is expected to maintain silence for the time being.
