Kylian Mbappé is not included in Paris Saint-Germain’s squad for the club’s Asian tour and has apparently been relegated to ‘training group two’. The superstar of the top French club is likely to leave the club in the near future.
“Le Parisien” reports that Mbappé is now completing units on the PSG campus with five other players who should no longer play a role in future plans: Georginio Wijnaldum, Leandro Paredes, Julian Draxler, Abdou Diallo and Colin Dagba.
The club is increasing the pressure on the 24-year-old. The unmistakable message: Mbappé should immediately look for a new club that pays a handsome fee. Unless he extends it. Otherwise there is a risk of a year on the substitute bench. Transfer insider Fabrizio Romano reports that everything could now go very quickly.
Mbappé is no longer part of the club’s plans and is up for sale. The national player, who is particularly courted by Real Madrid, has a contract that runs until 2024 and refuses to extend it – Mbappé (market value of 180 million euros) could add another season next year by clause. However, he probably informed the club management that that would not happen either.
According to a report by the Spanish online portal “Defensa Central”, PSG Mbappé is said to have offered a contract for ten years and one billion euros. That would actually be a “lifetime contract” for the 24-year-old Frenchman, the portal wrote.
The offer comes from the Emir of Qatar. PSG is owned by Qatar Sports Investments (QSI).
With the unusual offer, the club wanted to convince Mbappé to extend his contract, which Mbappé has so far refused to do. However, Mbappé is said to have signaled that he wanted to fulfill his contract in Paris.
In France it was suspected that the Frenchman could already have a preliminary contract with Real and then move south for free next year. Real has denied. Clubs from Saudi Arabia are said to have courted Mbappé.
