Kylian Mbappé reveals AC Milan dream; France hopes at Euros

Written by on May 29, 2024

Kylian Mbappé is widely expected to fulfill his life-long dream and join Real Madrid this summer, but the forward has said he would love to play for AC Milan one day.

Mbappé said he cheered for Milan as a child in Paris and revealed his fandom of the club continues to this day.

“You never know what can happen,” Mbappé told Sky Italia. “When I was a kid I was a fan of Milan. I always said that if I come one day to Italy, I’m going to play for Milan. I watch always the Italian league, every game of Milan.

“I was in Paris. I’m going to have a new club now. I’m really happy with what I have now.”

Mbappé played his last game for PSG after seven years at the club in Saturday’s 2-1 win at Lyon in the French Cup final.

“I have many dreams, to win every trophy possible,” he said. “But now, with the experience, it’s more to give emotion to all the people that watch me, who have followed me since I’m a young guy … I want them to have the feeling that they say when they watch me play, ‘ok, we enjoyed watching Kylian play.’ That is my objective now.”

Mbappé’s next opportunity to win silverware will come with France at this summer’s European Championship in Germany, where he said he is “hungry” to add to his sparkling international career.

Mbappé has already lifted the 2018 World Cup with France and scored a hat trick in the 2022 World Cup final but lost on penalties to Argentina.

France were knocked out at the round of 16 at Euro 2020, but Les Bleus are among the favourites this summer.

“The dream is always the same, it is to win,” Mbappé said. “We were in the World Cup final two years ago and the normal objective is to go there and win. It’s not going to be easy, there are many teams. We are really hungry and we want more.

“We want to be part of the history of our country. I have one World Cup, the [2020-21] Nations League and I’m missing only the Euro. If I win it, I will have won everything with the national team. I really want to write the history of my national team.”

France open their campaign against Austria on June 17. They also face the Netherlands and Poland in Group D.
