According to a recent report from RMC Sport, Kylian Mbappe has personally requested to leave PSG before the start of next season. 

If this report is right, Kylian Mbappe could be living his final days as a PSG player. Daniel Riolo from RMC Sport, just revealed new information that the youngster is not happy in Paris anymore and has requested to leave this summer. A move that goes directly against everything Nasser Al-Khelaifi has been working towards in the last few weeks. After his display in front of the press where he wanted to show his power over players, Mbappe didn’t take being treated like an object very well.

But this is how the PSG chairman usually operates, his behavior should come as no surprise to anybody. Now that the cards are on the table, Mbappe finally has a chance to make his move once and for all. Riolo stated that the player personally tried to speak to the board in order to tell them he wanted to leave but they rejected his request. Keep in mind that leaving right now means PSG can get a massive payday. Whereas leaving next season would leave no money inside their arcs. If they don’t manage to convince him to stay at the club, Kylian will be free to negotiate with any club of his choosing next season for free. 

What is PSG planning to do?

If they don’t manage to convince him to stay at the club, PSG has no other option but to sell him as soon as possible. As long as they hurry up with the deal, they will still have time to sign his substitute before the start of next season. The battle between the club and the player has officially begun with this breaking news. Kylian Mbappe will go through some of the most excruciating moments of his career. All the pressure will be on him during these times because PSG are experts at turning their players into the villains of the story.

There’s also the issue of finding the club that would pay what PSG will obviously ask for a player they don’t really want to sell. If Real Madrid considers the price is too high, they won’t go after Kylian Mbappe. Los Blancos don’t really have many options to choose from because they urgently need a major superstar in their ranks. Around the world right now, there are only two players who fit that description and Mbappe is certainly one of them.
