Chelsea once rejected Mbappe’s purchase due to his lack of quality

Chelsea fans have reason to regret, because according to a revelation from the British press, ‘The Blues’ could have recruited Kylian Mbappé for a very meager price.

This story was reveɑled by Serge Daniel Boga – a former Chelsea scout. In 2012, Chelsea could have acquired striker Kylian Mbappe.

Serge Daniel Boga was one of the first to discover Mbappe’s talent. In 2012, he brought the French player to “try his feet” at Chelsea’s Cobham training center.


Boga recalls: “Chelsea were the first team to try Mbappe, not Real Madrid. I told Chelsea about Mbappe and let them do what needed to be done. I contacted everyone who could at Chelsea. I bring the whole Mbappe family to Chelsea.”


“He was very technical, just like he is now. He was featured in the 7-0 win over Charlton.”


Mbappe once almost moved to Chelsea. He eventually joined PSG for £180m.

However, Chelsea hesitated in recruiting the French player. This makes Mbappe’s mother feel proud.

“After a week at Chelsea, we said to Mbappe: ‘Listen, we appreciate what you have, but we’ll have to invite you to try it on another time. Then we’ll see’.” Boga said.


“I still remember what Mbappe’s mother said back then. She said in French: ‘Listen, my son is not coming back. If Chelsea wanted him, they would either take Mbappe now, or in five years. then have to come back and buy it for 50 million’”.

However, Mbappe’s mother did not imagine her child’s value would be higher than that. After 5 years, Mbappe was not worth 50 million euros but worth up to 180 million euros when Paris Saint Germain bought him from Monaco. Just a year later, Mbappe won the World Cup.

“That’s what she told me. I replied that I couldn’t say that to Chelsea because it was too cocky. But she was right. Not even 50 million euros but 180 million euros. but still someone pays. Mbappe’s mother knows the value of her child and she was right,” Boga admitted


However, according to the former Chelsea scout, there are reasons why Chelsea did not sign Mbappe. He reveɑled: “He has very good skills, but in England they want to see a player who knows how to stick around and work hard. At that time, he wasn’t working very hard. Defensively, he was a player. It’s not like that. When he has the ball, Mbappe is unbelievable, but without the ball, he doesn’t work much.”

Only 17,000 pounds, and Chelsea should have had Kylian Mbappé since 2013. The French international has been to Stamford Bridge, in a plan to develop the academy of the Chelsea board. Mbappe was playing for French club Bondy, where his father Wilfried was a coach.


Mbappe was also given a tour of the Bernabeu and met Cristiano Ronaldo

Real Madrid at that time was also the club that wanted Mbappe’s services. At that time, Mbappe’s agent wanted his client to go to Chelsea instead of Real, and “accelerated” the process, by refusing Real Madrid. But the Chelsea leadership also… refused. They are cautious because of the price of 17,000 pounds for a player who is only 14 years old.
