French superstar Kylian Mbappe wants to leave PSG immediately and is actively looking for a move after a fallout with the board, as per reports in France.
RMC Sport reported that the 23-year-old feels “betrayed” by the PSG board and that they haven’t stuck to their word given to Mbappe when he penned his new deal in the summer.
Mbappe is said to be left frustrated with the system new coach Christophe Galtier deploys in Paris, and has made it known that he prefers to play in a two-man strike force, like he does for France with Olivier Giroud.
New PSG director of football Luis Campos, appointed in the summer past, is set to follow Mbappe out the door, according to Le Parisien. The man who oversaw an entirely new PSG transfer strategy in the window gone by, reportedly also feels betrayed by the PSG hierarchy.
Transfer expert Fabrizio Romano confirmed the reports, taking to Twitter to address the situation.
“Kylian Mbappé, not happy with Paris Saint-Germain as current situation is really tense. He wants to leave the club, as soon as possible.
“#Mbappé Paris Saint-Germain feel he’s really putting pressure on the club — they have no intention to sell Mbappé in January,” said Romano.
PSG reportedly don’t want to sell to Real Madrid, due to the whole Mbappe saga they were involved in during the summer. But the Parisian’s have reportedly set a €400million price tag for the World Cup winner, as per Foot Mercato. A sticky situation for the PSG board, who had just splashed out millions over a new deal for Mbappe. But reports indicate that the player’s relationship with the Club has broken down completely, and evidence suggests this was something long-time in the making.
