Mbappe asks for the exit from PSG

Kylian Mbappe

Kylian Mbappe and PSG never seem to learn. New reports on France suggest that Mbappe has asked to leave PSG in the upcoming January window. This comes after a time when PSG renewed Mbappe’s contract paying him huge amounts of money. The striker snubbed the interest from Real Madrid and decided to stay in France. Florentino Perez already said that he must be regretting not going to Real Madrid. It seems like his words have come true as Mbappe and PSG are not on good terms at the moment.

The reason for this behavior from Kylian is unknown but maybe has something to do with the dressing room and the promises the Board made. Earlier this month, things were not looking good between Neymar and Mbappe with both refusing to answer questions about each other. Mbappe called it a love-and-hate relationship because they sometimes switch on and off. A penalty incident also took place when Neymar did not hand it over to Mbappe when he asked for it. The duo are not on the best of terms but still are an integral part of the PSG attack.

Another reason behind the fallout is that Mbappe was promised 3 signings at the club. Robert Lewandowski, Milan Skriniar and Bernardo Silva were the names promised by the club to him. But PSG did not manage to bring a single one of them. This was the deal breaker as Mbappe feels the management betrayed him. He also wanted Neymar out of the club but that was too difficult to do with now Messi at PSG also. Liverpool are still linked with the forward but the financial numbers are too much for any side to manage. Mbappe’s new bumper deal keeps him at the club until 2025.

Can PSG enjoy European success?

Ligue 1 is not a big ordeal for PSG given the star-studded squad they have. The big one is the Champions League, which the club have been desperately trying to win. But they have failed for the past decade in achieving so. The club has had world-class players play for it but still, no one could guide them to a European throne. The squad this year feels much more complete with Messi also in top-notch form.

Neymar is enjoying one of the best seasons of his life. Kylian Mbappe is firing in goals with all guns blazing. It finally feels that the squad is a complete one with proper depth and determination. The likes of Messi and Neymar have gone so many years without the Champions League throne and this year might just be the one.
