French media and newspaper outlet Le Parisien have today confirmed reports from RMC Sport that Kylian Mbappé will likely leave Paris Saint-Germain in January, with the forward said to be feeling “betrayed” by the club’s upper management.
The 23-year-old French forward was embroiled in a transfer saga this year with PSG and Real Madrid fighting for his services.
Many expected the La Liga giants to acquire his services as Los Blancos are a team Mbappe has always admired and supported as a child, however, the French club won the battle in the final moments and retained their superstar for another three years.
Mbappe is said to be frustrated by the management at PSG, after failing to ensure the promises and terms of the deal that was made when he signed back in May.
He is said to feel betrayed by club president Nasser Al-Khelaifi and the Qatari ownership, as well as Antero Henrique, who was brought back into the fold this summer to manage the club’s transfer negotiations.
Mbappé has notably felt frustrated with Christophe Galtier’s attacking system and has publicly explained that he prefers playing in a two-man system alongside a pivot as he does with Olivier Giroud in the national team.
Galtier has explained that the club had set out to buy a fourth striker this summer, to no avail, meaning he has had to stick with the attacking trident of Mbappé, Neymar and Lionel Messi for most of the matches this season.
