Kylian Mbappe's clear denial of any possibility of joining Arsenal has sent shockwaves through the football world, leaving Arsenal fans disappointed and raising questions about the club's ability to attract top talents.

Paris Saint-Germain star Kylian Mbappe has laughed off the possibility of joining Arsenal, as his future continues to remain in contention. 

The 25-year-old explosive forward has informed the French champions he will not be signing a new contract; hence, he is set to leave come season's end. 

He is not expected to remain without a job when his contract expires, however, as it is believed he is set to join Real Madrid as a free agent. This has not stopped fans of other clubs from trying to poach him. 

Mbappe asked to join Arsenal 

During an outing for the Parisiens, Mbappe was approached by a young Arsenal fan with the handle @Mikeypoulli on X. 

The young fan, recognising Mbappe's contract situation, beseeched him to join Arsenal, saying, ”Please join Arsenal; we will look after you.”

The France national team guffawed after the request and replied, “No way,” as he continued to laugh off the prospect of him joining the North Londoners. 

Pressed further as to why he said there was no way he would be joining the Gunners, Mbappe replied, “It's too cold over there.”

Mbappe set to be Real Madrid's number 9

As Pulse Sports reported, Kylian Mbappe's next destination is all but sorted. The former Monaco man is said to have informed Real Madrid he wants them to make the announcement before the Euros, so he can be focused on the competition without the distractions of an unresolved future. 

He will also wear the number 9 at Real Madrid, the figure previously donned by his compatriot and former Ballon d'Or winner, Karim Benzema.
