Dembele Jokes Mbappe is Headed to Saudi Arabia

PSG's Ousmane Dembele jokes about Kylian Mbappe's potential move to Saudi Arabia, referencing Marcel Desailly's controversial recommendation. The playful exchange occurred at the UNFP awards ceremony ..

Paris Saint-Germain winger Ousmane Dembele poked fun at retired French defender Marcel Desailly's recommendation for Kylian Mbappe to move to the Saudi Pro League. Desailly's suggestion, made a few days ago, sparked controversy as it countered expectations of Mbappe joining Real Madrid.

The current 2023-2024 season marks the end of Mbappe's contract with PSG, which expires on June 30th. Both Mbappe and Dembele attended the National Union of Professional Footballers (UNFP) awards ceremony, where Mbappe received the Ligue 1 Player of the Year award for the fifth consecutive time, setting a record for the 25-year-old.

When asked about Mbappe's next destination, Dembele jokingly replied, "To Saudi Arabia, like Desailly said," drawing laughter from the audience and Mbappe himself. Mbappe's amusement seemed to stem from the subtle sarcasm in Dembele's comment, referencing Desailly, a former French international who played from 1993 to 2004.
