Mbappe: I asked PSG to let me go

Kylian Mbappe has told, how he tried to leave PSG in the summer for the sake of the club, but he wasn’t heard.

Until the last day of the summer transfer window, the fate of the French PSG forward Kylian Mbappe was unclear. After the disastrous European Championship, the player seriously thought about leaving for Real Madrid and tried to do everything for this, up to and including refusing to extend the contract.

Thanks to the transfer in the summer, PSG could receive substantial compensation. Next summer, if Kylian doesn’t renew his contract, he will be able to leave absolutely free. But the forward is in no way determined to stay at Parc des Princes longer than the allotted time,

“I asked PSG to let me go, because I had no plans to extend the contract and wanted the club to receive money for which they could sign a worthy replacement.

I announced this as early as possible so that the club would have time to react. I wanted everyone to benefit from this deal, to make everyone happy. And I said that I would stay if the club did not let me go. I personally did not like the statements that I would leave in the last week of August, because I announced my desire to leave in July,” Mbappe said.

In Mbappe's defense, we can say that he is doing well. He did not spoil the already savory atmosphere in the locker room due to the abundance of stars, he helps his partners on the pitch with all his might. Kylian acts like a professional, fulfilling his contract to the end. He did not throw out demarches and complicate Pochettino's life.

Thanks to such an approach, he even more attracts the clubs and makes even the current coach of Real Madrid, Carlo Ancelotti, talk about him. Although usually managers of other teams do not comment on these kinds of rumors. As for us, Real Madrid and PSG must agree on the transfer this winter, so as not to completely spoil relations with each other. It is clear that Mbappe will somehow end up at the Santiago Bernabeu. But Kylian, along with Benzema, who has gained shape, can be of great benefit to Real here and now.
