French sports minister Roxana Maracineanu has called on Paris Saint Germain (PSG) football star Kylian Mbappe and asked to keep playing in France. This came after Mbappe’s unbelievable performance this week in Champions League, where he scored a hat-trick that reignited speculation of him moving abroad.

Talking to France Info Radio on Friday, Maracineanu said “Kylian, stay in France, we want to be able to see you continue to play like that.”

The world cup winning soccer star Mbappe scored a stunning hat-trick as the Qatari-owned PSG thrashed Barcelona 4-1 away in their Champions League last-16 first leg on Tuesday.

The 22-year-old became the first player to net a treble away to Barcelona in Europe’s elite competition after Dynamo Kyiv’s Andriy Shevchenko in November 1997, when the Mbappe wasn’t even born.
Mbappe’s performance sparked more speculation that he is likely to leave France’s Ligue 1 for Spain’s La Liga or England’s Premier League, which are typically considered bigger and more prestigious championships.
