Kylian Mbappe told Paris Saint-Germain that he wanted to leave in the summer
Posted On April 8, 2021
It was reported that young superstar Kylian Mbappe told PSG that he wanted to leave in the summer.
Mbappe came to Paris Saint-Germain at the 2017 summer transfer window from title rivals Monaco, initially on loan before making the transfer permanent a year later for almost 180 million euros.
Since then, he has been very exciting for Les Parisiens, scoring 122 goals in 162 matches in all competitions. This helped the club win three league titles, four domestic titles and a Champions League final.
In addition, he scored four goals in the World Cup in Russia 2018, including one in the final as France went on to win the tournament.
Mbappe’s future has always been at the center of media speculation, with Real Madrid appearing intent on bringing the French player to the Bernabeu.
Los Blancos has received some good news, with Deportes Quattro reporting that the youngster has informed PSG that he will not sign a new contract and wants to leave the club in the summer.
The 22-year-old is widely expected to be the future Ballon d’Or winner, and recent performances in the Champions League against Barcelona and Bayern Munich have only accelerated the hype around him. This has raised its market value to obscene levels.
However, the former Monaco player’s contract will expire in just over a year, making him likely available on a free transfer if he does not renew his contract. Ligue 1 may choose to sell it this summer while it still has value.
Deportes Quattro claims Mbappe has set his heart on a move to Real Madrid. The Spanish giants are also aiming to include Borussia Dortmund striker Erling Haaland, who has become one of the most sought-after players in the world in the past two years.
This will be worrying news for Paris Saint-Germain, who could also lose out on Brazilian playmaker Neymar next year. The former Santos man’s contract also expired in 2022, and he has been closely tied with a return to Barcelona.
Neymar and Mbappe are currently the most expensive players in football history. It would be a devastating blow to PSG if they both lost a free transfer.
