British actor Tom Holland is heavily promoting his upcoming film Spider-Man: No Way Home and is currently in France for that. He was also in attendance at the Ballon d’Or ceremony. The Hollywood star met Lionel Messi earlier this week and even teased pictures in his Spiderman outfit in the Paris Saint-Germain dressing room. During this period, Holland also met French forward Kylian Mbappe. Holland, a Tottenham Hotspur supporter, approached Mbappe and asked him to join his Premier League team, to which Mbappe simply laughed. The 25-year-old opened up to LADBible about his experience at the Paris ceremony.
Speaking of his encounter, he said: “He was really friendly, so I said, ‘Comrade, you have to come to Tottenham,’ and he just laughed!” Footage also surfaced of Mbappe saying it was “impossible” to transfer Holland to a North London club, with the unidentified actor laughing in response. “No, impossible. It’s impossible! “Mbappe replied before bursting into laughter.

Jokes aside, Mbappe is set to renew his contract in June 2022. While it looks like he will get an extension at PSG as the organization seeks to commit the French international to his long-term future in the Ligue 1 club, he is still free to sign a pre-contract with a club outside France in January. . Most importantly, Mbappe will have the option to join any club in the world as it is highly sought after and Spurs is a club that is less likely to join. They are currently fifth in the Premier League, without Champions League football and in serious danger of not qualifying for next year’s Premier Cup. The 2018 World Cup winner, however, has been the subject of intense transfer speculation linking him to Real Madrid. He has previously expressed a desire to play for Los Blancos. Mbappe remains ninth in the Ballon d’Or rankings, with newcomer Lionel Messi at the top after Argentina’s Copa America win.
