Former Chelsea scout Serge Daniel Boga has revealed the club’s conversation with the mother of Kylian Mbappe back in 2012.

The now Paris Saint-Germain forward’s mother was less than impressed when the Blues invited her son back for a second trial.

She issued the West London club a warning: ‘Sign my son now or in five years for €50 million’.

“Listen, my boy won’t be coming back”

Boga has revealed how the French forward impressed whilst on trial at Chelsea back in 2012.

However, after offering him a second trial period, Mbappe’s mother informed the club, “my boy won’t be coming back”.



She even made the bold prediction that the Blues would one day be attempting to sign her son for “€50m”.

Boga told Goal:

“After a week at Chelsea, we went into the office.

“We said ‘Listen, we appreciate what we saw from you but we have to invite you back for another trial and we’ll see after that.

“I remember what the mother said to this day.



“She spoke in French to Fraser and I was translating.

“She said to me, ‘Listen, my boy won’t be coming back. If they want him they have to take him now or in five year’s time they will be coming back to buy him for €50 million!’

“That’s what she said to me! I said, ‘No I can’t say that to them. It is too cocky for me.’

“She was right, though. It wasn’t even €50m but €180m that someone would pay.

“So, she knew the quality of her son and she was right.”
