The Fench star is expected to join Madrid next season

Legendary defender Marcel Desailly of the France national team has advised Paris Saint-Germain sensation forward Kylian Mbappé to join and play in the Saudi Professional League, despite the fact that nearly everything points to his impending move to Real Madrid.

“Mbappé will be free without a contract next summer. I will have a different opinion about his future. I do not know if Real Madrid is the right destination for him, with Vinicius, Bellingham and players offering high quality. I think that Mbappé will not be the number one star in the way he wants at Real Madrid.

So I feel that Mbappé may move to the Saudi Pro League, because football has become an industry. He may play there for at least a year. Mbappé’s move to Saudi Arabia will not only be in search of money. The league there is very competitive.

Look at the stadiums there, which are crowded with fans, and international channels are paying millions to broadcast the competition’s matches.”

When the Paris Saint-Germain player’s contract expires this summer, he will be among the most talked-about football star in the world and free to sign with any club.

PSG’s UCL exit against Dortmund

In his last season at the club, Mbappe would have wanted to win the Champions League, but a loss to Borussia Dortmund ensures that this goal won’t materialise before he departs.

The attacker is anticipated to sign with Real Madrid this summer, who are one game away from playing Dortmund in the Champions League final. However, Desailly claims that Mbappe may decide to finalise a transfer to Saudi Arabia instead.

Mbappe has a history of turning down what seemed to be an obvious transfer to the Bernabeu, having unexpectedly chosen to sign a new deal with PSG at the last minute two summers prior.

Thierry Henry, another former World Cup winner with France, thinks that Mbappe, 25, will go down as PSG’s all-time greatest player, regardless of what he chooses to do next. Now it remains to be seen what happens with the Frenchman’s future.
