Amid swirling speculations of an impending transfer to Real Madrid, Mbappe has refrained from addressing the matter publicly.

However, during the UNFP Ligue 1 Awards ceremony on Monday, May 13, the 25-year-old dropped a hint about the club he might join forces with in the summer.

Mbappe hints at next destination after PSG exit

"A page is turning. A chapter in my life is closing," Mbappe said in his acceptance speech after winning a fifth Ligue 1 Player of the Year prize, as quoted by GFFN.

He also offered special praise to AS Monaco and his soon-to-be former club, PSG, acknowledging the significant roles both clubs have played in shaping his career.

"I’ll leave with my head held high, having done everything I could, but I couldn’t have done it without the clubs that I played for, firstly AS Monaco and then, of course, PSG... I’m going to miss it."

Hinting at his future without revealing the club's name, Mbappe expressed excitement about the upcoming opportunity at his next destination.

Despite keeping mute on the specifics, he eagerly anticipates the new adventure that lies ahead.

"A page is turning in my life. I’m very excited about what is to come, but that is something else."

Mbappe embroiled in heated exchange with PSG president

Meanwhile, Mbappe reportedly had a heated confrontation with club president, Nasser Al-Khelaifi, just before PSG's final home match of the season against Toulouse on Sunday.

According to reports in France, as Sports Brief has reported, the club chief reportedly expressed displeasure with the Frenchman's farewell video as he was not acknowledged in it.

Al-Khelaifi was said to have questioned Kylian about being snubbed from the message, triggering a heated exchange between them that escalated to a point where 'the walls shook'.

Ancelotti's perspective on Mbappe joining Madrid

In a previous publication, Sports Brief also covered Real Madrid manager, Carlo Ancelotti's perspective on the Mbappe rumours.

The Italian tactician commented on the widespread speculation that has intensified since the French star confirmed he would leave PSG.
