Kylian Mbappe’s situation has also affected the Paris Saint-Germain (PSG) squad.
According to Fabrice Hawkins of French outlet RMC Sports, who is well versed in PSG’s inner workings, “Mbappe was left off the Asian tour roster after refusing to extend his contract. This has created a bad atmosphere in the PSG squad. The mood at PSG is not bright at the moment. According to club officials, the players are unable to let go of the situation and stay together. This atmosphere is not conducive to team life. Will the mood suddenly improve while Mbappe’s case remains unresolved? We will find out in the next few days.”
At the moment, the relationship between PSG and Mbappe is at its worst. Rumors of a rift between Mbappe and PSG have been swirling ever since the player announced that he does not plan to exercise his contract extension option and has no intention of re-signing. PSG president Nasser Al-Khelaifi has hinted that Mbappe will have to choose between renewing his contract and leaving the club this summer, but Mbappe is determined to see out the remainder of his contract until next season.
Speculation of a rift grew when Mbappe was left off PSG’s Asian tour roster. PSG released their Asia tour roster ahead of their preseason in Japan, and Mbappe’s name was not on it. There was no indication that Mbappe was injured, leading many to speculate that the omission was due to a feud. 먹튀검증
The rest of the PSG squad is trying to figure out what to make of the situation. “The mood of the PSG players in Japan is not good,” Hawkins said. According to my contacts in the squad, the players are torn between wanting to support their teammates and being leaders. The Parisians don’t know what position to take on the incident.”
With the whole squad mentioned, it will be interesting to see if the newcomers who joined PSG in the summer transfer window, including Lee, Manuel Ugarte, Marco Asensio, and Milan Skriniar, will be affected by this atmosphere.
For now, Mbappe remains with the team and is reportedly training with the second team. Regardless of the situation, Mbappe doesn’t seem to be too bothered. According to ESPN, “Mbappe has been training with players who were not included in the Asian tour roster. Mbappe appeared happy and unconcerned about the situation, according to sources.”
