Kylian Mbappe had a hilarious reaction to Antoine Griezmann signing him for Newcastle United on Football Manager.

On Thursday, it was announced that the Premier League club had been taken over by the Saudi Public Investment Fund, thereby ending Mike Ashley's 14-year stint as owner.

The Magpies now have the richest owners in the league and are expected to splash the cash in the upcoming transfer windows. And Griezmann hinted who their first signing should be when he brought Paris Saint-Germain star Mbappe to St. James' Park.

While on international duty with France ahead of Euro 2020, Griezmann was seen talking to his colleague and fellow FM super-fan Ousmane Dembele about his exploits. He was explaining that in one year at Newcastle, he led the club to a whopping five trophies - including the Premier League, Champions League, and FA Cup in a stellar season.

He also revealed that he bought Mbappe for €134m eliciting a hilarious reply from the 22-year-old who said: "Newcastle, where? It's not very warm there eh?"

Mbappe has repeatedly been linked with an exit from PSG with Real Madrid touted as his most likely destination. His contract is due to expire at the end of the current season, and while Newcastle might not be a likely option at this point, it will be interesting to see what transfer business the new owners do in the January transfer window.
