Mbappe wants to leave PSG, despite the signing of Messi. What is the reason?

PSG signed Leo Messi, but the question of Kylian Mbappe’s contract is still open. The problem is that the talented Frenchman’s contract with the Paris club expires next summer. And this means that PSG risks letting one of its leaders go for free.

There was information that Mbappe is ready to leave Paris, even despite the arrival of Messi. We tell you what the reason is.

What has been going on 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 offer for Mbappe. The leading Spanish radio station Cadena SER reported 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-Kylian’s brother.

But the footballer himself went on a 15-day vacation after the failure at Euro 2020 with the French national team. Meanwhile, the Spanish newspaper Marca wrote that Mbappe had already told Pochettino that he would not renew his contract with PSG. According to rumors, Kilian was disappointed with the unfulfilled promises from the Paris club and generally doubted the success of the project. At that time, no one could think about the transfer of Messi.

“What is clear with Mbappe is that he has another year on his contract. He is in the team, and we will treat him the same as we treat players with contracts for five years.

Any situation can develop in one way or another, issues such as contract extension are dealt with at another level. But in terms of sports, this does not 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.

Is it possible to imagine that he will leave for free? I don’t live in a fantasy world. And I don’t think about what may or may not happen. He has another year on his 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 reported that Real Madrid had reached out to Mbappe and was trying to negotiate a transfer with him. Madrid even promised Kilian a bonus of € 40 million if he does not extend his contract with PSG and moves to the Spanish club as a free agent.

Earlier this month, PSG managers focused on the transfer of Messi, postponing negotiations on a new contract with Mbappe. According to The Athletic, the French club hoped that Leo’s transfer would convince Kilian to stay in Paris and sign a new long-term contract, despite the interest from Real Madrid.

But the Madrid team took a wait-and-see attitude. According to Marca, Real Madrid wants PSG to offer to buy Mbappe himself after the transfer of Messi. Until August 31, when the transfer window in Europe closes, Madrid will only work on player sales. But if there is an opportunity to sign Mbappe, the “cream” will try to take advantage of it.

What has changed after Messi’s arrival at PSG

The signing of Messi should have changed Mbappe’s mindset. Nevertheless, on Wednesday, August 11, the Spanish edition of AS spread information that the Frenchman is still going to leave PSG this summer. In addition, he finally soured relations with the sports director of the club Leonardo. Instead of the Brazilian manager, the club’s president, Nasser Al-Khelaifi, began negotiating with Kilian.

Insiders claim that the 22-year-old Frenchman only wants to go to Real Madrid, where he will definitely be in the leading roles. Now he does not care about the size of the Parisians ‘ offer, because he no longer wants to play for the French club. PSG has not yet received any offers from Madrid or from other clubs that would be interested in buying Mbappe.

Messi at PSG is wildly interesting. And it also kills football
Al-Khelaifi, during a press conference dedicated to the transfer of Messi, tried to calm the PSG fans.

“Mbappe is a PSG player. We know everything about his future. He said he wanted to play for a competitive team. You can’t create a more competitive team. He has no reason to leave. He can only stay, ” said the boss of the Paris 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 held in private. Kilian is very happy about the transfer of Messi. There are no problems. 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 transfer of a top player as a free agent. But now PSG will lose the battle for the star. There is an opinion that Kilian simply does not want to be in the shadow of Messi and Neymar.
