Thierry Henry, the former Arsenal and France star, said he hopes Kylian Mbappe will stay in the ranks of Paris Saint-Germain, at a time when news spread of his association with the move to Real Madrid.
Mbappe has been linked with a move to Real Madrid for a long time, but recent days have witnessed a new development after speculation that Real Madrid will try to sign the Paris Saint-Germain star before the end of the current transfer period, at a time when he has been linked to a move to the English clubs Manchester United and Liverpool.
Mbappe entered his last year in his current contract with Paris Saint-Germain, at a time when the star-winning star of the 2018 World Cup was not close to signing a new contract, despite the arrival of Argentine star Lionel Messi to the team.
Henry, who played for Monaco like Mbappe before starring in Arsenal and Barcelona, expressed his desire for the 22-year-old to stay at Paris Saint-Germain.
Henry said via “Amazon”: “I do not know what is happening with Mbappe, we can always speculate or say a lot of things, for me what I see is that he is still a player in Paris Saint-Germain, that he trains, plays, runs and tries to create opportunities for his teammates.”
He added: “He scores goals as well and I know that well, and he is a player who respects his contract, he did nothing bad and responds through the field, so be happy.”
Henry explained: “As I always say, when there is an exceptional player we always try to find mistakes in small things.
And the former Arsenal star asked: “Has he offended anyone? No, I haven’t seen that yet. He is with the team, but he is playing well.”
Mbappe scored a goal in Mauricio Pochettino’s 4-2 victory over Brest last Friday.
