British actor Tom Holland has heavily promoted his upcoming movie Spider-Man: No Way Home and is currently in France for the same. He was also one of the attendees of the Ballon d’Or ceremony. The Hollywood star had met Lionel Messi earlier this week and also teased photos in his Spiderman outfit in the Paris Saint-Germain dressing room. During that period, the Netherlands also met French attacker Kylian Mbappé. Holland, a Tottenham Hotspur supporter, approached Mbappe and asked him to join his Premier League team, to which Mbappe simply burst out laughing. The 25-year-old opened up to LADBible about his experience at the ceremony in Paris.
Of their meeting he said: “He was very friendly so I said ‘Mate, you must come to Tottenham’ and he burst out laughing!” Footage also emerged of Mbappe telling Holland a transfer to the north London club would be “impossible”, with the Uncharted actor laughing in response. “No, impossible. That’s impossible!” Mbappe reacted, before bursting out laughing.

Jokes aside, Mbappe is set for a contract extension in June 2022. Though it seems more than likely he will get an extension at PSG as the team looks for the French international to sign his long-term future at the Ligue 1 club he is still free to sign a pre-contractual agreement with a club outside France in January. Most importantly, Mbappe will likely have the option of joining any club in the world as he is so sought after and the Spurs are one club he is least likely to join. They are currently fifth in the Premier League, with no Champions League football, and are at high risk of failing to qualify for next year’s Premier Cup competition. However, the 2018 World Cup winner has been tipped off by intense transfer speculation that has late linking him to Real Madrid. He has also previously expressed a desire to play for the Los Blancos. Mbappe finished ninth in the Ballon d’Or standings, with new team-mate Lionel Messi taking first place after winning the Copa America in Argentina.
