17 May 2024 / Interviews

Kylian Mbappé's last weeks in Paris are particularly scrutinized. Before discovering the Spanish capital and the legendary Real Madrid, the PSG star made a trip to Berlin, to inaugurate his wax statue at the Madame Tussauds museum and then attended a charity gala in Paris.

If the Berlin wax statue received a lot of praise for its strong resemblance (this is not always the case) with the captain of the Blues, Kylian Mbappé made an impression by raising the stakes particularly high during the club's charity evening. The Paris For Good event, Place Vendôme, you had to take out your checkbook…

In collaboration with Naked Heart, the Paris-SG informs us that 2,7 million euros in donations were collected during this charity evening. These millions will be directly donated to charitable operations. Especially to help children in need.

« This year, with this unique charity gala, we are joining forces to raise awareness of the importance of social inclusion and support for children with special needs, such as those with autism. Our shared vision is to make this annual event the highlight of the Parisian philanthropic calendar. », said PSG president Nasser Al Khelaifi.

Kylian Mbappé was, as usual, very generous. Whether in front of the cameras or off, he always shows great solidarity. No need to film, he travels to hospitals to meet sick children. No need to film, according to our information, he is generous towards various charitable organizations. Great player with a big heart.

That evening, Kylian Mbappé had fun raising the stakes with his great friend Achraf Hakimi. Attracted by a painting of King Pelé, the future number 10 of Real Madrid embarked on a series of record auctions for this evening. Priced at 5000 euros, the painting initially rose to 300 euros, leaving six buyers remaining.

This is where Achraf Hakimi and Kylian Mbappé engaged in a mano a mano, like in training! It was the attacker who won against the Moroccan defender. As usual ? In any case, Kylian Mbappé left with the painting for the sum of… 520 euros! For a good cause.

Enough to make his friends gathered at his table smile, like Olivier Rostaing, artistic director at Balmain.
