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.
