Interviewed this Tuesday by brand, Paris Saint-Germain striker Kylian Mbappé returned to his controversial trip to Madrid in early May. The 23-year-old Frenchman, who had traveled to the Spanish capital with his teammate Achraf Hakimi, explained that he did not regret this trip, which was not intended to make people talk, and that he had everything made to keep this Madrid getaway a secret.
“It was not a mistake. I was in Madrid because Achraf told me to go to Madrid with him. I will probably do it again. I didn’t go to Madrid for people to talk. I went with Achraf on a private flight, we changed our names and everything so no one saw me and then we went to a restaurant and someone warned me. But I didn’t say: ‘Yes, I’m going to Madrid so everyone can see me’. I went directly, secretly, with my friends and Ashraf paid for the trip so that my name wouldn’t even be on it and people wouldn’t see me at the airport. I went to the hotel, I relaxed, then I went to the restaurant and everyone saw me. But it was for Ashraf”explained the tricolor international who extended with PSG until June 2025.
