Lionel Messi reveals when Paris Saint-Germain star Kylian Mbappe will decide future amid Real Madrid transfer links, says Wonderkid speaks “perfect Spanish”


Paris Saint Germain superstar Lionel Messi insists only Kylian Mbappe knows his future, with the striker’s contract set to expire at the end of the season.

The Argentinian, who joined the club last summer, expressed his joy when the Frenchman stayed in Paris after the club rejected Real Madrid’s € 220million (£ 185million) offer .

But now Mbappe is in the last 12 months of his contract and has yet to sign a new deal with the Parisians.

He said he was “happy” at Parc des Princes but given that he can start negotiating with foreign clubs once the transfer window opens in January it could be a goodbye to PSG .

Real Madrid remain committed to the player and president Florentino Perez has hinted he will try to land Mbappe on a free transfer.

“Public clubs don’t sell their players, it’s madness,” Perez told Spanish journalist Ramon Alvarez.

Messi, however, believes Mbappe will only think about his next move once the current campaign is over.

“Mbappe will decide at the end of the season,” the Argentine told Marca.

“Only Kylian knows what’s on his mind and what he’s going to do.

“I’m glad he stayed here this year. It is very important to us.

Although he wants him to stay, Messi may have inadvertently added fuel to the fire on Mbappe’s future.

When he first moved to the club, Messi revealed that Mbappe helped his new team-mate feel welcome by speaking “perfect Spanish” to him.

“With a player like [Mbappe], it’s easy to get along, “the Argentinian told France Football.

“In addition, Kylian speaks perfect Spanish, so we also have good exchanges off the pitch. “

And he reiterated the fact to Marca: “He speaks [Spanish] Perfectly. But he speaks very well in everything: Spanish, English, obviously French… ”
