In an interview with La Gazzetta dello Sport, in addition to giving more thought to his contractual situation with PSG and his supposed desire to sign for Real Madrid, Kylian Mbappe was questioned about the recent departure of Lionel Messi from the Parc des Princes.

Mbappe made it clear that it is never good news when a player like Messi leaves and declared himself surprised that some consider it something positive: "We are talking about possibly the best player in the history of football. It is never good news when someone like Messi is leaving. I don't quite understand why so many people were so relieved that he was leaving", said Kylian.
