Kylian Mbappe's deadpan facial reaction after Antoine Griezmann informs that he has bought him for Newcastle United on Football Manager

There is a good chance Kylian Mbappe isn’t signing for Newcastle United or any Premier League club any time soon as the PSG striker showed his concerns about the cold English weather during a light-hearted moment with Antoine Griezmann.

The forward duo is currently travelling with the France squad for the upcoming Euros as the Barcelona man boasted about his Football Manager prowess.

While sat alongside fellow FM enthusiast Ousmane Dembele, the former Atletico Madrid forward revealed how he’s led the Tyneside-based club to five trophies in a season on the popular football simulation game.

Griezmann continued to revel in his FM skills when he informed Mbappe that he’s bought him for Newcastle United in a £134 million deal. But the PSG striker appeared less than impressed with the revelation.

Check out the video and a translated transcript of the conversation below –

AG: Guigui (cameraman), I’m going to show you my 2027 trophy list. With Newcastle! PL Champion, FA Cup, CL, Community Shield and super cup! 5 titles! What a manager… I am in the pantheon of English football. Ousmane tell them!!

OD: Not too bad, not too bad…

AG: Come on tell them!

OD: Yeah not too bad, that’s a decent trophy list.

AG: Quintuple! (laughs and points at Ousmane) He’s salty!

OD: Not at all. I have nothing to prove. Nothing to prove…

AG: (To Kylian) Hey, I bought you for Newcastle. Bought you for 134 million.

KM: Where?
