Kylian Mbappe is one of the hottest properties in the game of soccer with the French superstar enhancing his reputation with each passing at the back of some incredible performances. The PSG forward has recently been in news for his comments on a probable move to the Italian Serie A in the future.
He was asked the question about coming to Italy by a fan at a party after the World Cup 2022 runner-up was named in the FIFA FIFPRO World XI alongside his teammates Lionel Messi and Achraf Hakimi in a ceremony held in the French capital, Paris.
Mbappe answered the question very casually and replied that if he ever came to Italy, it would only be AC Milan as the club has been his favorite in Italy since childhood. He said: “If I come it’s only AC Milan”

Fans have reacted to the comments made by Mbappe and one such fan said that the current financial situation of AC Milan might mean that the entire team of AC Milan will have to depart Serie A and the club in order to facilitate a move to Italy for Mbappe.
They wrote: “Probably the entire milan team will need to depart serie A for that”.
Another AC Milan showed optimism and urged Mbappe to finance his transfer to the Seria A club and agree to cut his wages by 90% as this would be the only way he can play for the club as Mbappe is on a heft $74 million per year at PSG.
The fan wrote: “Let’s do it mate, you’d just have to finance the transfer and cut your wages by 90%.”

Kylian Mbappe has four months to extend his stay at PSG
Kylian Mbappe’s transfer to Real Madrid was the talk of the town for the entire summer transfer window last year as the forward was on his way to the Spanish club but snubbed them at the last moment to sign a new lucrative contract at PSG.
Mbappe signed a flexible contract at PSG which will keep him at the club for at least two years until 2024 with an option to extend till 2025 but the catch is that he has to decide on such an extension till the summer of 2023 and with only 4 months left, the time is ticking for the superstar to decide whether he signs an extension or not.

The current contract situations at PSG are a bit messy for the club as the talks with Lionel Messi have also stalled and there are massive rumors about Neymar Jr. leaving the club in the summer. It seems like the French champions might be in for a huge mess as they could lose all three of their star trio in the coming months if they aren’t able to convince them to stay.
