The Frenchman is reportedly unhappy that some promises that were made to him after he signed a three-year contract extension in the summer – that made him the highest-paid footballer in the world – have not been met.
Less than six months after Kylian Mbappé extended his contract with Paris Saint-Germain, the French star is reportedly looking for a way out.
The World Cup winner had been close to joining Real Madrid on a free transfer this summer but finally agreed to stay at PSG for two more years with an option for an extra season
The relationship between Kylian Mbappe and Paris Saint-Germain is now completely broken. It seems that there is no turning back and he already asked to leave in July.
Moreover, the sporting management of the Parisian club knows it and has agreed to work with Mbappe, as it was July but with conditions. The main one, which will surprise few, is that his destination is not Real Madrid.
Mbappé was not impressed by PSG’s work in the summer transfer market and is upset he has been asked to play almost every game this season as a No 9 rather than in his preferred position off the left.
The situation between club and player is tense but PSG believe he has let his discontent be known to put pressure on them and intend to rebuff any offers for the 23-year-old.
Mbappé had been expected to leave PSG for Real Madrid last summer but stunned the Spanish club by committing his future to the P.S.G team.
According to Marca, Mbappe would be allowed to join Liverpool as this doesn’t breach the condition, but whether the Reds would have the financial muscle to make such a deal happen remains to be seen.
Jurgen Klopp is an admirer of the young Frenchman and even held talks with him in the summer before the forward decide to commit his future to PSG. “We talked a little bit, but not too much. We talked a little bit,” Mbappe told the Telegraph. “I talked to Liverpool because it’s the favourite club of my mum, my mum loves Liverpool. I don’t know why you will have to ask her!
The club has dominated the French league since cash-rich Qatari investors took over in 2011 but has failed to replicate that success on the European stage despite spending massive amounts on star players.
Mbappé joined PSG from Monaco in 2017 when he was still a teenager. He has often said that playing for Madrid was his childhood dream. Even when he signed his extension, the Frenchman did not rule out making the move one day. “What will happen in the future, I don’t know,” he said in May.
