Arsenal Sporting Director Reacts To The Club Signing Mbappe
Arsenal sporting director, Edu Gaspar, has reacted to the Gunners making a move to sign Paris Saint-Germain superstar, Kylian Mbappe.
Mbappe has told PSG that he will not be continuing with them beyond his current official deal contract, which expires in the summer of 2024.
That means that he would walk out as a free agent next summer if the Parisians fail to sell him in the ongoing transfer window.
Reports have suggested that Arsenal could look to make a move for Mbappe in 2024.
The reports intensified after the Frenchman was spotted hanging with the Gunners’ Folarin Balogun.
One fan wrote on Instagram:
“Edu will really be sliding into Mbappe’s DMs soon.”
The Arsenal sporting director saw the funny side of things and left five laughing emojis under the post.
