Monaco striker Kylian Mbappe teased the football public on Twitter on Friday regarding his future, announcing he will be wearing Nike Mercurial boots next season.
The 18-year-old has been heavily linked with a move away from Leonardo Jardim’s side having impressed during Monaco’s Ligue 1 title-winning campaign last season, scoring 15 goals and contributing a further eight assists in 29 league appearances.
Mbappe seemed to be making an announcement about his future on Friday, only to reveal the type of footwear he would be wearing next season, not the club he could be joining.
He said: “Hello everyone, it’s me. As you know, in the past few days my name has been linked with a number of rumours and I think it’s important to clarify some information.
“I have thought a lot about the pros and cons of my future options and I have come to a decision. Next season I am going to play with … my Nike Mercurials!”
It seems we will have to wait and see whether the teenager moves on this summer, but the speculation regarding his future will certainly continue to make press headlines.
