In a recent statement, French President Emmanuel Macron expressed his hopes for soccer sensation Kylian Mbappe to represent France at the upcoming Paris Olympic Games.


This comes in the wake of Mbappe's announcement that he will be leaving Paris Saint-Germain, amidst widespread speculation about his potential transfer to Real Madrid.

"Beyond the anticipation of his club transfer, I am keenly hopeful that Real Madrid will allow Kylian the opportunity to join the French squad at the Olympics," Macron mentioned in a video on his X account. This public endorsement highlights the national importance of Mbappe's participation, not just as a sports figure but as a national icon.
