The future of french forward, Kylian Mbappe at Paris Saint-Germain has been thrown into serious doubts again following his recent remarks while on international duty with France.
Reports have it that the Ligue 1 giant are growing ‘frustrated’ with the star player.
After months of speculation, Mbappe had been hugely expected to get a new contract signed, with his current deal set to expire at the end of next season.
But so far this has not be possible, with no recent progress made, and Mbappe appeared far from content with life in Ligue 1 in a recent interview he gave while away on international duty with France.
When asked about the scrutiny he has gotten from the media recently, he replied:
“Of course it gets tiring. Especially when you play for a club in your country and you give everything for your national team. After a while it gets tiring.
“It’s different for players who play abroad and only come back here for the national team. I’m there all the time, they speak about me a lot more. It’s a different context [to other players], but I knew it would be like that when I signed for Paris. We’ll see.”
And according to the Nation, French outlet Le Parisien reported that, PSG chiefs Leonardo and Nasser Al-Khelaifi are no longer comfortable with the situation, and are considering dropping Mbappe’s asking price this summer in order to offload him now rather than risk losing him on a free next year.
European power house such as Liverpool and Real Madrid have been heavily linked with a move for the 22 year old in the past, but they are likely to cough out a fee in the range of £102-128m if they are to tempt PSG to cash in.
