Kylian Mbappe to Terminate PSG Contract?

PSG forward Kylian Mbappe

Kylian Mbappe is reportedly considering terminating his contract at PSG amid the French superstar wanting a move away from Paris after a breakdown in the relationship between the player and the Club’s hierarchy.

Mbappe is said to be unhappy with the PSG board after they failed to deliver on the promises made to the World Cup winner when he signed a new three-year contract in May this year, worth a reported staggering £1million per week.

Now, Mbappe is pondering terminating his contract with the Ligue 1 champions, according to L’Équipe. The former Monaco star and his team are reportedly considering the termination off the back of an investigation conducted by Mediapart, which alleges PSG to have hired an “army” of fake Twitter accounts to lead a movement against current and former players. However, the Club has since denied these accusations.

Mbappe is said to be one of the focuses of the secret campaign, which has led to his verdict on leaving the French capital being final.

The forward’s representatives are now exploring ways in which to get him out of his current deal with PSG. Since the contract he penned 5 months ago is based on a fixed term, French Law suggests that Mbappe would have to compensate the Club with a substantial fee, possibly even more than what he is set to be paid across the course of the deal.

However, further reports from L’Équipe state that should the investigation by Mediapart be proven accurate, Mbappe’s legal team can file for contract termination on the grounds of PSG not fulfilling their duty of loyalty towards employees. But the verdict of the case would be based on a judge’s assessment of the situation.

Mbappe was heavily linked with a move to Real Madrid prior to him extending his deal, but the Spanish giants have remained coy on the possibility of going back in for the Frenchman. Given the substantial fee required to prise Mbappe away from PSG, whether it’s paid by himself or another club, the five-time Ligue 1 winner is likely to only get his move next summer.
