Pickford seeing psychologist to make him ‘calmer’, Gareth Bale ‘to RETIRE after Euro 2020’, Spain draw with Portugal


PSG striker Kylian Mbappe has revealed his parents talked him out of moving abroad when he was 14.

The French striker has been heavily linked with a move to Real Madrid this summer after an impressive season in Ligue 1.

Speaking to L’Obs, Mbappe said: “My parents wanted me to start my career in France, to be educated in France.

“To play football, but also to continue my education. To go to Spain, even if it was with Zidane, it was another country, another culture.”

And according to Spanish newspaper Marca, Real were the club that wanted to take Mbappe from his native France.

The news comes after ex-Chelsea scout Daniel Boga revealed the Blues turned down the chance to sign the striker in 2012.

The 22-year-old also discussed his future, telling the French magazine: “I always want to set myself challenges, because that allows you not to relax.

“Being on the pitch feeds me, it’s how I recharge. Thanks to that, I have the energy to face the other aspects of football.”
