Mbappe speaks on his relationship with James

Mbappe has now disclosed that he enjoys a close relationship with James, and he regularly seeks career advice from the NBA legend.

"He has a much more advanced career than I do, and projects outside sport that have cemented his place as a legend," Mbappe told GQ Magazine.
"Being able to ask such inspiring personalities for advice is a chance to adjust my projects and create my own thing," he continued.

Mbappe's revelation comes at a time when he is expected to make a major decision on his future with PSG.

The Frenchman's deal with the Ligue 1 club is set to expire at the end of the ongoing season.

Real Madrid are understood to be the firm favourites to secure his services, while Liverpool have also been linked with a possible move.

Mbappe admits he misses Messi

Sports Brief reported on Mbappe admitting he misses Messi after the Argentina captain left Ligue 1 to join Inter Miami in Major League Soccer last month.

The France national team captain explained what the former Barcelona captain offers on the field, which suited his style of football, but he hasn't had anyone to do that since he left.
