Kylian Mbappe has opened up on Arsenal’s failed attempt to lure him to England when Arsene Wenger was in charge.
The youngster who switched his allegiance to Paris Saint Germain from Monaco last year had the offer from the North London giants. Then Arsenal manager Wenger himself had approached the youngster but the 19 year old had already made up his mind and moved to the French capital.
Mbappe initially signed for a season long lone and later at the start of this season PSG made the move permanent. Unai Emery was at the charge of the PSG side but later he left the club and eventually the Spaniard joined the Gunners this season.
Mbappe revealed despite turning down the club Wenger didn’t seem to be annoyed with him. “He is a real French football monument who has left Arsenal. I have not seen many people in this world being viewed in such a unanimous way.
“When the entirety of Europe gets on its knees in front of him to celebrate him, that certainly means something.
“A little while ago, before I signed for PSG, we were in contact in 2017. I chose a different direction but he wasn’t annoyed at me.
“He was a gentleman about it and wished me good luck.”
