Chelsea Legend believes leaving for the Premier League will help Kylian Mbappe fire up his career
The former Blues forward believes staying in France won’t favour Mbappe’s quest for the most noticed individual award in modern football history.
Having lost a penalty that sealed France’s eviction from the ongoing Euro, the French forward has been advice to heal this wound with goals.
Although the 22-year-old isn’t stranger to goals as the past season had him provide Paris Saint German with 42 goals in 47 games but Anelka believes the League 1 won’t reward him well despite this huge tallies.

With Chelsea linked strongly with a move for the former Bondy youth, Liverpool are also considered contenders but according to reports from Fabrizio Romano, the Reds aren’t really interested in chasing the former Monaco star.
The West Londoners are yet to mark any signing this summer and following Anelka’s words, it appears he is persuading the young forward to make a move to his former side.
Mbappe is known to be a Chelsea fan but couldn’t make it into the club back as a kid after his mum rejected to follow things up.
“If you want the biggest accolades, you will have to move from PSG at some point,” Anelka wrote on his page on The Athletic.
“Whatever you will do in Paris will be good but somebody will always say, ‘Well, you did great for PSG but it was only in France. The best leagues are in England and Spain, so you didn’t compete with the best players in the best league’.
“You will have to decide. If you want to win the Ballon d’Or, which is what you should be looking at to echo Cristiano Ronaldo and Lionel Messi, you will have to compete with the best.
“You can’t say you compete with the best all the time when you are at PSG. The French league is not easy, don’t get me wrong, but I think the toughest league is in England.
“So, if you want to be one of the best, then do what you do in Paris but with Chelsea or United or Arsenal or City or Liverpool. Or go to Spain to Madrid or Barcelona. Or maybe Italy.
“Then we can speak about a more global impact.”
