The future of Kylian Mbappe is always up in the air. The Parisian’s prowess is undeniable, as he often lights up the pitch with his clinical finishing and pace. Off the field, however, a whirlwind of speculation has surrounded his future, leaving many guessing his next move. Interestingly, as per two renowned podcasters, the Frenchman is constantly frightened of not getting an invitation to the Middle East. This wild guess from their side ended up with the Saudi Pro League director, Michael Emenalo, getting brutally trolled.

Many strongly believe that if Mbappe leaves PSG, it will be to find a home at his boyhood dream club, Real Madrid. However, what if the golden doors of Saudi Arabia were open to him?

After listening to Marcotti, Laurens quickly followed up on the trolling game. “So kind of him. Is it because it’s Christmas so he feels like very generous and because Kylian was really worried.” He further added that the 24-year-old was constantly worried about Cristiano Ronaldos Al-Nassr and Karim Benzema‘s Al-Iittihad not approaching him.

Later, he asked the PSG talisman not to worry, as after Emenalo’s assurance, it would be easy for Mbappe to find a club that would cover him in gold. Marcotti was quick to retort with humor, mentioning that the Frenchman was only concerned with earning experience. But, what was the offer from Saudi Arabia said to be like?
