PSG star Kylian Mbappe reveals the one Serie A side he would be open to joining

The Frenchman was quizzed at an awards ceremony on Monday


Paris Saint Germain forward Kylian Mbappe has claimed that a future in the Serie A could be on the cards, but that he would only join AC Milan were he to make the switch across the Alps.

The France star, who netted a hat-trick in the World Cup final in Qatar only to see his side lose on penalties, was at the FIFA ‘best’ awards ceremony on Monday night, where he finished second behind World Cup winner and PSG teammate Lionel Messi.

Asked about coming to the Serie A, he told one guest that ‘If I come, it’s for AC Milan’, though whether the Serie A club could afford his reported £500,000 per week wages and massive transfer fee is another matter.

As it stands, the Rossoneri are spearheaded by their own young superstar Rafael Leao, who is attracting attention from the Premier League amid a contract standoff, though sources close to the Italian side insist they remain in dialogue over a new deal.

After scooping the MVP award in last season’s Serie A, the Portuguese winger has grabbed 8 goals and 7 assists in 23 outings this season.

Mbappe himself has been in unstoppable form, topping the Ligue 1 scoring charts with 17 in 21 outings, while he also has seven goals in the Champions League and five in the Coupe de France.

With Neymar set to be absent from PSG’s Champions League second leg tie with Bayern Munich, in which they trail 1-0 heading to the Allianz Arena, all the focus will be on Mbappe to continue that impressive goalscoring record and fire his side closer to their dreams of winning a first Champions League trophy.
