The conflict between Kylian Mbappe and PSG is reaching its peak. According to the French press, the 24-year-old striker is considering a plan to liquidate the contract with the Paris capital club to be able to leave right in January 2023 – when the 2023 World Cup ends and the winter transfer window opens.
According to the RMC channel, the striker feels betrayed by PSG and wants to leave Paris even though he has only signed a contract for more than four months.
Kylian Mbappe’s current salary
Before the 2022 summer transfer window opened, he extended with PSG a contract until 2025 with a weekly salary of $ 815,000 and became the highest-paid footballer in the world. But less than half a year, the French striker broke his relationship with the owner of the Parc des Princes.
Kylian Mbappe loses faith in PSG
According to French radio channel RMC, the 23-year-old striker feels betrayed when the PSG leadership does not live up to its promises. In the new contract, PSG is said to commit to Mbappe as the owner of the club’s sports project, including being allowed to promote the purchase and sale of players in each transfer window.
Specifically, the Ligue 1 champions have promised Mbappe to sign Robert Lewandowski, Bernardo Silva, and Milan Skriniar to win the Champions League. However, none of these landed at PSG. In the media, Mbappe criticized the PSG coaching staff for forcing him to play as a striker.
Mbappe turns his back on PSG, and wants to find a new destination
From Spain, Marca newspaper revealed that he even asked to leave PSG in July, two months after signing a new contract. At that time, PSG agreed to let the French striker find a new destination, as long as it was not Real Madrid. Liverpool once opened negotiations with the Paris club, but the deal was not approved.
Transfer expert Fabrizio Romano also confirmed the current troubled situation in the French team but confirmed that PSG had no intention of selling Kylian Mbappe in January 2023. The Parc des Princes team feels that the 23-year-old striker “just wants to put pressure on the leadership”.
Trong kỳ chuyển nhượng hè 2022, Mbappe được cho muốn PSG mua tiền đạo trung tâm, nhưng bất thành. Điều kiện vô địch Ligue 1 khi đó hỏi Gianluca Scamacca, nhưng không chấp nhận trả 52 triệu USD theo yêu cầu của Sassuolo. Tiền đạo Italy sau đó gia nhập West Ham, và ghi 6 bàn thắng qua 12 trận thi đấu.
In the summer transfer window of 2022, Mbappe was said to want PSG to buy the central striker but failed. The conditions of the Ligue 1 championship then asked Gianluca Scamacca but did not accept to pay $ 52 million at Sassuolo’s request. The Italian striker then joined West Ham and scored 6 goals in 12 matches.
The amount of compensation Mbappe must pay if he leaves PSG
Wanting to leave PSG, Mbappe must compensate a huge amount of money according to the commitment between both in the signed contract. “The player may have to pay compensation equivalent to the transfer amount when leaving the team before the end of the contract,” lawyer Jérémie Delattre (specializing in labor law) explained to L’Equipe.
Thus, Mbappe may have to pay tens or even hundreds of millions of euros if he leaves PSG before the deadline.
Kylian Mbappe breaks relationship with Neymar
PSG also ignored Mbappe’s request to sell Neymar. The star duo was said to have broken their relationship after competing for a penalty kick in the 5-2 victory over Montpellier on August 13. Unable to win the right to shoot, Mbappe did not come to celebrate when Neymar successfully performed.
After the match, the Brazilian striker liked a series of Twitter posts that criticized Mbappe. In Brazil’s friendly match against Ghana 3-0 on September 23, Neymar even smirked and quit the interview, when asked about his relationship with the junior striker at PSG.
In the 0-0 draw at Reims in the 10th round of Ligue 1 on October 8, Mbappe publicly criticized the tactics of coach Christophe Galtier. In this match, the French coach let him join rookies Carlos Soler and Pablo Sarabia to form a trio in attack, while Neymar was the substitute, and Messi was absent because of a calf injury.
After the match, Galtier said Mbappe was like an “orphan” when he didn’t play with two senior strikers. The French striker posted on Instagram a photo of himself with the hashtag “pivot gang”. According to Get French Football News, the 2018 World Cup champion implied that he did not want to lead the PSG attack alone like Galtier’s layout.
During the gathering with France at the end of September, Mbappe once complained that the style of play at PSG was not like the French team – where he had more space thanks to Olivier Giroud as a wall and attracted the attention of the opponent’s defender.
Mbappe’s transfer contract with PSG
In the summer of 2021, when Mbappe had one year left on his old contract with PSG, Real was willing to pay more than $ 200 million to recruit the French striker but was refused. Mbappe wanted to move to Real to play football in free form in the summer of 2022 but changed his mind when he was advised by French President Emmanuel Macron and PSG promised to give many benefits.
Last month, French newspaper L’Équipe revealed that Mbappe’s new contract with PSG only lasts until 2024, with the option to activate an additional year. The source emphasized that the one-year extension clause of this contract can only be activated by Mbappe, not the Paris club.
With the penalty that opened the scoring in the 1-1 draw with Benfica on October 11, Mbappe has 12 goals but has not passed to any teammate to score in both Ligue 1 and the Champions League, over 12 matches.
