Mikel Arteta confirms Arsenal’s interest in Kylian Mbappe after PSG star announces departure to teammates

Kylian Mbappe has been making headlines lately due to his ongoing transfer rumors for the past three years. After being associated with a move to Real Madrid for the past three years, this time it seemed more likely that the transfer would actually happen in the football transfer market.

Recent reports have suggested the potential for various teams due to a contractual issue in the Real Madrid transfer concerning player salaries. A notable team showing interest in the business is Arsenal, particularly following comments made by their manager Mikel Arteta regarding the potential signing of the French player.

Mikel Arteta talks on Kylian Mbappe transfer

Shocking reports emerged yesterday, suggesting that Premier League side Arsenal might be interested in securing a deal for the French striker, who is set to become a free agent at the end of the current season.

Arsenal manager Mikel Arteta was asked about his club’s possible move for Kylian Mbappe, and the Spaniard added fuel to the speculation by stating that his team would require special players like Mbappe to become exceptional, even though these conversations involve the owners and not him—at least not until the final stages.

These reports have come after Kylian Mbappe was linked with a move to FC Barcelona recently in which the Catalan club was stated to be ready to sell crucial players for him in the likes of Frenkie De Jong, Ronald Araujo, and Gavi, who is also being chased for a post-Mbappe era signing by PSG.

Kylian Mbappe informs teammates on PSG exit

Earlier yesterday, reports emerged stating that the player had informed his teammates about his departure from PSG at the end of the season during their morning training session. This report followed Fabrizio Romano’s revelation that Kylian Mbappe has already decided to leave in the summer, with no turning back on his decision this time.

Although the reports confirmed the player’s decision to leave his teammates, it was also confirmed that the French striker didn’t mention anything about his potential destination to any one of his teammates during that training session.

Kylian Mbappe’s decision to leave PSG at the end of the current season has sent shocking waves all over Europe and many European clubs, including the likes of Manchester United, Arsenal, Real Madrid, and Barcelona are being linked to the player.

As of now, though, Real Madrid seems to be the likely destination for the French striker, with a personal deal almost wrapped pending some wage issues in the contract.

This thought could wake up the whole world as the current Real Madrid team, which is already full of stars like Vinicius Jr., Jude Bellingham, Rodrygo, Camavinga, Touchameni, Brahim Diaz, and probable signing Alphonso Davies, would become almost impossible to even play after the addition of Kylian Mbappe to the already fierce starting lineup.

The Kylian Mbappe transfer saga is yet to end and many reports have been contradictory to each other. It remains to be seen which team Kylian Mbappe finally decides to sign for, as all the power is currently in the player’s hands as he is set to be a free agent in 6 months.

Do you think Kylian Mbappe is already set to join Real Madrid? Or could Arsenal steal the deal from the Galacticos at the very last moment? Let us know your thoughts in the comments below.
