“All the people who took care of me weren’t there”
Kylian Mbappe has stated that he is happy in Paris Saint-Germain (PSG) despite strong claims that he is looking to leave the club during the January transfer window.
On the 11th day of the Champions League French clubs clash with SL Benfica, there is news that Mbappe is not happy at Parc des Princes. It is reported that he has been frustrated by PSG having rejected the promises they made to him when he extended his stay at the club this summer.
Despite the claims, Mbappe played against the Portuguese side in Paris and scored the equalizer 1-1. Real Madrid and Liverpool are the two clubs with the most serious contact with the French international since then.
The former AS Monaco star has now put an end to speculation when he claims he doesn’t want to leave the French champions in January.
Speaking after the final whistle in his team’s 1-0 Ligue 1 win over Olympique de Marseille on Sunday (October 16), he said (h/t RMC Sport):
“I am very happy, I never asked to leave in January. The information was given on the day of the match [vs Benfica], I don’t understand. I’m not even remotely involved in this news. I was as shocked as everyone else.
“People may think I’m involved but I’m not involved, I’m taking a nap. My entourage is playing my brother’s game, all my carers aren’t there. so we were amazed when we heard about it.
“Then we have to work it out, have a game to play. Just wanted to say it’s completely wrong and I’m very happy.”
Kylian Mbappe was present in the match PSG vs Marseille
Kylian Mbappe assisted the only goal of the game in his team’s win over OM. The 2018 FIFA World Cup winner had a neat assist for Neymar Jr in the extra time of the first half, who finished well with a first shot.
Both of them celebrate together with no hatred, only joy. Some reports have stated that Mbappe wants PSG sell Neymar this summer as a condition to renew your contract.
From what the two have shown on the pitch in recent weeks, there doesn’t seem to be any bloodshed or even clumsiness between the duo. Business is still going on as usual in Paris despite the speculation surrounding their star.
Victory over coach Igor Tudor’s team helps PSG to have 3 points at the top of the table after 10 matches.
