Kylian Mbappe sends classy message to Unai Emery

Arsene Wenger Kylian Mbappe

Kylian Mbappe has revealed that he was close to joining Premier League side Arsenal before he joined Paris Saint-Germain.

Emery was sacked by PSG in the summer but Mbappe's move was made permanent for around £166m.

The pair locked horns in the World Cup semi-final between France and Belgium, where Mbappe was struck by the ability of the Chelsea winger. "He was a gentleman and wished me good luck".

"I do not forget that he helped me adapt to this big team, which was not easy", he told France Football.

"I have a lot of respect for this man even if he did not succeed in Paris".

The teenage sensation is seen by many as the best young player in the modern game , with him being awarded the first "Kopa" trophy for the world's top young talent at the Ballon d'Or ceremony on Monday .

Cardi B and Offset no longer together
Cardi and Offset started dating in early 2017, and by October he publicly proposed to her at the Powerhouse concert in Philly. Fans expressed their dismay on Instagram over the news, with some urging the star to not give up on her relationship.

"I sent him a congratulatory message when he signed for Arsenal, and now, I am following from afar".

On the other hand, youngsters like Trent Alexander-Arnold, Amadou Haidara of Salzburg, Groningen's Ritsu Doan and Rodrygo Goes of Santos were all in the running for the award.

Mbappe beat off competition from Liverpool's Trent Alexander-Arnold and Borussia Dortmund's Christian Pulisic to win he award at a plush ceremony in Paris, France, hosted by former French worldwide David Ginola.

In doing so he became just the second teenager to score in a World Cup final after Brazilian great Pele, who achieved the feat in 1958.

"My next goal? It is to win everything".
