Kylian Mbappe Opens Up: PSG’s Divisive Nature and Uncertain Future

-

Kylian Mbappe, the renowned French striker, has expressed his concerns about his current club, Paris St-Germain (PSG), referring to it as “divisive.” Speculation about Mbappe’s future at the French champions has been growing, especially as his contract with PSG is set to expire in 2024. In an interview with France Football magazine, the 24-year-old confirmed that he will not be signing a new deal with the club.

Mbappe reportedly stated, “I believe that playing for PSG isn’t very beneficial due to its divisive nature as a team and a club.” Nasser Al-Khelaifi, the chairman of Paris St-Germain, has made it clear that he will not allow Mbappe to leave on a free transfer when his contract expires next summer.

Having joined PSG from Monaco in 2017, Mbappe has become the all-time leading scorer for the club and has helped them secure five Ligue 1 titles. In the previous season, he scored an impressive 41 goals in all competitions, contributing to PSG’s 11th league title victory. However, their pursuit of Champions League success came to an end once again in the last 16 when they were eliminated by Bayern Munich.

Reflecting on the team’s performance, Mbappe stated, “We gave it our all. It’s important to have conversations with the decision-makers, those responsible for team composition and club structure.”

PSG recently appointed Luis Enrique as their new head coach, replacing Christophe Galtier. Enrique takes charge of a squad that is going through a transitional phase. Furthermore, PSG has already allowed Lionel Messi, the Argentine World Cup winner, aged 36, to join MLS side Inter Miami. Additionally, the future of Brazilian forward Neymar, aged 31, with the club remains uncertain.
