After announcing he’d be leaving the French football champions PSG this European summer, speculation about Kylian Mbappé’s next mega-money transfer was rife, but it’s clear that the French captain is quite content with taking his time, watching the Formula 1 action in Monaco this weekend… and was seen rocking an outrageous Hublot piece.

When Kylian Mbappé first signed for PSG for a then transfer record of €180 million EUR (~$294 million AUD), Paris Saint Germain’s President Nasser Al-Khelaifi was warned that, inevitably, the star French forward would dream of making the big money move to the allure of Real Madrid.

Well, after years of speculation, contract renewals (and contract-breaking clauses), the inevitable has happened; Mbappé is a free agent and the football world holds its proverbial breath for this superstar’s next move… The football world is seemingly at Kylian Mbappé’s feet.

In the meantime, however, Mbappé has returned to the iconic province where he made his name as an electrifying teenage sensation all those years ago, walking the streets of Monaco ahead of the Formula 1 Grand Prix last weekend.

Followed by a close entourage, the French international was drawing quite the crowd before lights out in Monaco, failing to duck questions from the sport’s most persistent on-track reporter Martin Brundle for his pre-eminent F1 Grid Walk.

Kylian Mbappé is also one of football’s big watch guys, and it would’ve been a rare event indeed to see the young French star without one of his signature pieces for the event. He didn’t disappoint, rocking one of his collection’s most extravagant pieces as he waved the chequered flag as Charles Leclerc secured his first-ever home win.
