Kylian Mbabane told Paris Saint-Germain on Monday that he wanted to leave the club. “I said at the end of July that I wanted to leave,” Mmbappe told RMC Radio. “My position is clear. I told them I wanted to leave. I told them (PSG management) early on.” The French World Cup winner has not extended his contract at PSG, which he predicts will move to Real Madrid at the end of the season. The Spanish giants bid for Mbappe for 180 million euros (USD 209 million) in August, but PSG, which signed Lionel Messi from Barcelona, turned down the offer.
At the time, PSG’s sports director Leonardo Mbabane said, “We can leave our conditions or stay.”
“If I do not want to leave, I will stay,” he told the PSG.
“I refused to extend six or seven offers. People told me I had never talked to Leonardo. This is not entirely true,” he added.
Mbappe, who joined PSG from Monaco in 2017 for a contract worth a total of 180 million euros, said PSG had offered to leave the club in July to find a “quality alternative”.
“I wanted everyone to be in a winning situation,” he said.
“Paris is a club that has given me a lot. I’m always been happy for the four years I’ve been here. I’m still happy.”
