Real Madrid transfer target Kylian Mbappe's meeting with key political figures sparks speculation on his future.

Kylian Mbappé, at just 25, found himself at the centre of an extraordinary gathering this Tuesday evening, rubbing shoulders with none other than French President Emmanuel Macron and the Emir of Qatar, Sheikh Tamim bin Hamad Al Thani. 

The venue? The illustrious Élysée Palace, where the France captain was among the distinguished guests at a gala celebrating the Emir of Qatar's visit to Paris.

Mbappé's invitation to the high-profile event, attended by 120 VIPs, including Nicolas Sarkozy and Paris Saint-Germain president Nasser Al-Khelaifi, ignited a flurry of speculation. With rumours already swirling about his departure from PSG and a potential blockbuster move to Real Madrid, the presence of PSG's top brass at the gala added fuel to the fire. 

Despite reports suggesting Mbappé has decided to leave PSG when his contract expires this season, insiders have poured cold water on these claims.
