While speculation swirls around a potential PSG bid, Kylian Mbappe takes time to spread joy, engaging in a kick-about with unwell children at a heartwarming charity event in Paris.Kylian Mbappe may be the most in-demand footballer in Europe this summer, but the Monaco teenager still found time in his busy schedule to have a kick-about with those less fortunate than himself.

The 18-year-old attended a sports day organized by the charity Premiers de Cordee, who organize events for children currently in hospital and also raise awareness of youth disability. With the help of Mbappe, the event got a huge media boost with scores of people turning up to watch France’s latest star do what he does best in the local Parisian community.

The striker looked to be having a whale of a time as he taught the children some skills with a football and posed for photographs to make sure they had visual evidence of a day they are unlikely to forget.

Born in the Parisian suburbs, Mbappe and the children played on the kind of community pitch that he would have hoped his talents on as a youngster before earning a place in the famed Clairefontaine academy at the age of 13.

It was from there that Monaco scouts noticed his talents and pounced to sign him, a decision that could well earn the club a nine-figure sum if they decide to sell this summer.
