Anelka: Mbappe must leave PSG to make global impact

Mbappe has a contract at the French club until June 2022 but has been linked with a move to Real Madrid

Kylian Mbappe needs to leave Paris Saint Germain if he is to make an impact on the global stage like Ballon d’Or winners Cristiano Ronaldo and Lionel Messi, former France international Nicolas Anelka said.

Mbappe, who scored 42 goals in all competitions for PSG last season, has a contract at the French club until June 2022 but has been linked with a move to La Liga’s Real Madrid.

The 22-year old had a disappointing campaign with world champions France at Euro 2020 where he failed to score and missed the decisive spot kick in their shootout loss to Switzerland that saw them crash out in the last 16.

Anelka, who won the Euros in 2000 with France, said Ligue 1 is not easy but England’s Premier League is the “toughest league”.
