The relationship between Kylian Mbappe and Paris Saint Germain appears to be heading for the rocks as the Frenchman launched an onslaught on the club.
Mbappe sighted their “shortcomings” and the exit of Lionel Messi as reasons for his decision not to further his deal with the Parisians.
The 2018 FIFA World Cup winner this week revealed the stunning news of his lack of desire to agree on a new deal beyond 2024.
Real Madrid, Manchester United, Chelsea and other massive teams in Europe are already set for talks to indicate their interest in Kylian Mbappe.
Paris Saint Germain now appear to have their back against the wall and they have little to no alternative than to let the Frenchman go.
The record 11th time Ligue 1 champions are hoping not to lose him for free next summer so they could accept any considerable offer tabled for him.
Meanwhile, Kylian Mbappe has insisted that he will remain at the French capital despite the recent turn of events.
The attacker has discussed with Italian media outlet, Gazzetta dello Sport about what is currently unfolding.
Kylian Mbappe clarified an information which has been spreading like wildfire
Mbappe revealed that he didn’t say he wants to join Real Madrid, but that he isn’t extending his deal for a further year.
Kylian Mbappe said: “For a player like me, the goal is to win everything. And we knew that at PSG there were shortcomings that sooner or later we were going to end up paying for.
“I didn’t say I wanted to be sold to Real Madrid or want to leave, but only that I won’t activate the option on the extra year.
“With PSG, there has never been any talk of a renewal. Messi gone? Bad news, now needs to be replaced.”
On the 13th of June 2023, Kylian Mbappe responded online to reports circulating that he wanted to join Real Madrid, stating: “LIES. I have already said that I will continue at PSG where I am very happy.”
Mbappe Frowns at Messi’s exit
It looks like the former Monaco prodigy doesn’t like the way PSG is being run and he complained about the exit of Messi.
He said: “He’s one of the greatest players in the history of football. It’s never good news when someone like Messi leaves.
“I don’t quite understand why so many people were so relieved that he was gone. He didn’t get the respect he deserved in France.”
In spite of the Frenchman’s statements that he is happy and wants to remain at the Parc Des Princes for another year, the subsequent reality is clear.
What Kylian Mbappe and PSG might result to
Kylian Mbappe will either further his deal or be sold to a club willing to part with the amount requested by PSG.
Real Madrid are the club strongly linked with the Frenchman, having declared his desire to represent the Spanish giants.
Financial Fair Play limitations might affect Chelsea and Manchester United from securing Mbappe’s services despite several reports linking him to England.
Bayern Munich have also distanced themselves from the deal as they are not eyeing the 24-year-old.
PSG hierarchy are trying to amend the burnt bridges between the fans and the club as supporters say the team no longer has a French identity.
Lionel Messi had exited the club in June and there is a possibility of Neymar departing next.
If PSG lose Mbappe, it could have a costly effect on the team
The loss of Kylian Mbappe could have an astronomical effect on the love the French fans have for the team.
If the attacker leaves PSG, Manchester United’s Marcus Rashford has been penned down as a possible replacement.
Kylian Mbappe looked to be in a happy mood as he trained with Les Blues despite the uncertainty regarding his future.
Anyway, Real Madrid would not want to be deceived once again after the saga which kept the Frenchman at the Parc Des Princes last summer.
Reports suggest that Los Blancos would not approach the 24-year-old first as they still have the thoughts of missing out on him twice in the last two years at the back of their mind.
Mbappe might be forced to speak with Real Madrid to indicate his interest in joining the team either by a transfer fee or possibly on a free transfer next summer.
