Kylian Mbappe’s father is fed up with constant talk and speculation surrounding his son’s career, especially concerning a move to Real Madrid.

Wilfried Mbappe says he used to follow the stories surrounding his son in the media, but the constant talk of a transfer has put him off.

Mbappe senior told French newspaper Le Parisien: ‘Before I read and watched everything, but not any more.
‘It’s like a chocolate cake, if you eat too much, then you get an upset stomach. Sometimes, there’s misinformation too.
‘OK, Kylian is a public person, but I do not understand that there are everyday things about him. It’s embarrassing.

‘I am no longer able to do things that were done every day. Sometimes we need peace. Today, everyone knows this name.’
Having been moved from the wing to play as a central striker, Mbappe has scored 33 goals in 38 games for Paris Saint-Germain this season.
It has led to Real increasing their interest as they aim to find a replacement for Cristiano Ronaldo, who moved to Juventus last summer.
