Only four and a half months after his extension, Kylian Mbappé would already like to leave Paris Saint-Germain. In any case, this is the message that the player’s clan sent on Tuesday, tired of a situation that does not suit him. Broken trust with the staff of PSG, problem of positioning on the ground, the evils are not lacking.
Parisian star Kylian Mbappé has expressed to his relatives the wish to leave Paris Saint-Germain this winter. But the timing of this outing raises questions, just hours before a Champions League match against Benfica, where Kylian Mbappé will have scored a penalty. This new Mbappé case leaves a lot of mystery. And like everyone else, Paris Saint-Germain coach Christophe Galtier is looking for answers.
The main hypothesis: the power struggle within PSG. The real malaise of Kylian Mbappé serves the player’s clan to regain control. Promises not kept during the transfer window, false start of Neymar, the reproaches are numerous. Nasser Al Khelaifi and his loyal lieutenant Antero Henrique are easy targets.
By waving the red cloth, those close to the player point to everything that was to change in Paris, and which never took place.
Should we believe these threats?
Now, should we believe in these threats? It’s difficult at this stage. Few clubs will be able to display the astronomical sum that will have to be paid to acquire the player. And even if Real Madrid, or another team, would succeed, it would be necessary to convince PSG who made Mbappé a matter of honor. Paris does not want to hear about a departure of its star this winter.
