Mbappe wants to leave PSG despite the signing of Messi. What doesn’t suit him?
PSG signed Leo Messi , but the question of Kylian Mbappe’s contract is still open. The problem is that next summer the talented Frenchman’s agreement with the Parisian club will expire. This means that PSG runs the risk of letting go of one of its leaders for free.
There is information that Mbappe is ready to leave Paris, even though Messi has arrived. We will tell you what is the reason.
What happened between Mbappe and the club in recent months
Immediately after the end of last season, PSG got down to business and began to prepare a new proposal for Mbappe. Spanish leading radio station Cadena SER announced that the new contract will affect not only Kilian, but also his relatives. Then the French club even signed a three-year agreement with 15-year-old Ethan Mbappe , Kilian’s brother.
But the footballer himself, after failing at Euro 2020 with the French national team, went on a 15-day vacation. Meanwhile, the Spanish newspaper Marca wrote that Mbappe had already told Pochettino that he would not renew the contract with PSG. According to rumors, Kilian was disappointed with unfulfilled promises from the Parisian club and generally doubted the success of the project. Then still no one could think about the transfer of Messi.
However, the head coach of PSG quickly denied this information.
“What is clear with Mbappe is that he has another year under the contract. He is on the team, and we will treat him the same way we treat footballers with five-year contracts.
Any situation can develop in one way or another, issues such as contract renewal are dealt with at a different level. But in terms of sports, it doesn’t change anything. The main thing is that Mbappe continues to work as he is now, in order to remain the best. Then there will be no problems. These are personal conversations. But Kilian didn’t tell me anything about the refusal to renew the contract.
Can you imagine him leaving for free? I do not live in a fantasy world. And I don’t think about what may or may not happen. He has another year under the contract – this is the reality. Now he is our player, we will treat him accordingly, ”Pochettino said in an interview with Le Parisien.
At the end of July, Marca announced that Real Madrid came out on Mbappa and were trying to negotiate a move with him. Madrid even promised Kilian a € 40 million bonus if he did not renew the agreement with PSG and move to the Spanish club as a free agent.
Earlier this month, PSG executives focused on Messi’s transfer, postponing negotiations for a new contract with Mbappé. According to The Athletic, the French club hoped that Leo’s move would convince Kilian to stay in Paris and sign a new long-term deal despite Real Madrid’s interest.
But Madrid took a wait and see attitude. According to Marca, Real wants PSG to offer to buy Mbappe after Messi’s transfer. Until 31 August, when the European transfer window closes, Madrid will only work on player sales. But if there is an opportunity to sign Mbappe, the “creamy” will try to take advantage of it.
What has changed after Messi’s arrival at PSG
Messi’s signing was supposed to change Mbappe’s mood. Nevertheless, on Wednesday, August 11, the Spanish edition AS circulated information that the Frenchman is still going to leave PSG this summer. In addition, his relationship with the sports director of the club, Leonardo, has finally deteriorated. Instead of the Brazilian manager, the president of the club, Nasser Al-Helayfi, began negotiations with Kilian .
Insiders argue that the 22-year-old Frenchman wants only Real Madrid, where he will definitely be in the leading roles. Now he does not care about the size of the offer of the Parisians, because he no longer wants to play for the French club. PSG have not yet received offers from either Madrid or other clubs that would be interested in buying Mbappe.
Al-Khelaifi, during a press conference on Messi’s transition, tried to reassure PSG fans.
“Mbappé is a PSG player. We know everything about his future. He said he wants to play for a competitive team. A more competitive team cannot be created. He has no reason to leave. He can only stay, ”said the boss of the Parisian club.
In an interview with Le Parisien, Al-Khelaifi confirmed the fact of negotiations with Mbappe.
“We are negotiating with Kilian and his family, they are being held privately. Kilian is very pleased with Messi’s transition. No problem. Mbappe wants to play for a great team, and he has everything to stay at PSG. I have already said that he has no reason to leave. “
If the Parisians still fail to agree with Mbappe on a new contract, then next summer we will witness another transition of the top player as a free agent. But now PSG will lose the battle for the star. It is believed that Kilian simply does not want to be in the shadow of Messi and Neymar.
