PSG Display No Interest In Letting Their First 11 Great Attacker Leave In January
PSG Display No Interest In Letting Their First 11 Great Striker Leave In January.
Clearly, Paris Saint-German Demonstrates no interest in letting Kylian Mbappe go in the coming January transfer. However, Mbappe already defines himself totally as always a great player so far in his career.
Reports in Spanish media on Tuesday claimed that Mbappe was going to a bullfight in Madrid today. But, according to his social media, Mbappe will be at a charity event in Nimes this afternoon.
According to Sky Sports News:
A source close to the player told Sky Sports News: “He wants to leave every week,” when asked if his desire is for a January exit.
Asked how this will play out, the source added: “They will probably kiss and make up, but this will keep flaring up again and again”.
PSG sources believe the stories about Mbappe are coming out of Spain and are intended to destabilize PSG. They claim the reports are “utter nonsense” and “complete rubbish”.
Mbappe is unhappy that he’s playing through the middle, while his relationship with Neymar is not great and he’s disappointed with the club’s transfer strategy.
“Mbappe is unhappy at PSG at the moment because he doesn’t like the role he’s playing in the team. He’s being asked to play as a central striker and he doesn’t like the tactics the new head coach Christophe Galtier is using.
“Also, his relationship with Neymar is not great. There have historically been problems between the two players and he’s also unhappy with PSG’s transfer strategy in the summer.
“If we go back a few months, everyone was expecting him to leave PSG because his contract was running out and everyone was expecting him to move to Real Madrid.
“He changed his mind and signed a new contract at PSG, but promises were made to him about the strategy of the club and he feels those promises weren’t kept. So there are quite a few reasons why he’s unhappy.”
According to European football expert Kevin Hatchard speaking on Sky Sports News:
“I think there’s an element of posturing here, to be honest. PSG was desperate for him to sign a new contract in the summer and he felt he was going to have a lot of influence there was the feeling that he had a shopping list of what he wanted.
“Part of it was that he thought Neymar was going to leave the club in the summer and the opposite has happened: he’s playing well and scoring and making goals alongside Lionel Messi. They had that link at Barcelona. Mbappe is playing center-forward and that’s not what he wanted to do.
“There was a message on social media recently – #pivotgang – which implies he wants a center-forward to play off instead of being the number nine. He’s not happy about that and some of the transferred business.
“But realistically – where is he going to go? He shut the door on Real Madrid in the summer, I think they were quite wounded by that and it would be a climb down for Real to then go and spend £200m on a player they could have got for free a few months ago.
“There are clubs who have the numbers. A club like Newcastle, for example, would be desperate to try and make a statement signing but even they are not free and easy on what they can do in the market.
“It’s a difficult situation for him because there are very few clubs who could put across the package that PSG would want and then he personally would want. There’s a lot of talk about Liverpool – are they going to commit that amount of money, as amazing as Mbappe is? That would be a major shift from what the club has done before.”
