Kylian Mbappé Reveals He Asked To Leave PSG This Summer

Kylian Mbappé has confirmed he asked to leave PSG this summer.

The 22 year old was heavily linked with a transfer to Real Madrid, with the Spanish giants rumoured to lodge two bids for him in excess of £100 million.

And whilst PSG did not budge, Mbappé has revealed he wanted the powers that be to accept Carlo Ancelotti's offers.

"I asked to leave," the World Cup winner told RMC Sport, as quoted by Get Football News France. "Because from the moment where I did not want to extend, I wanted for the club to receive a transfer fee so that they could bring in a quality replacement. The club has given me a lot. I have always been happy... and I still am.

"I said it early enough so that the club could react. I wanted everyone to come out of this stronger, that we leave hand in hand, to make a good deal and I respected that. I said 'if you don't want me to go, I will stay'."

Since moving to the capital on a permanent deal in 2018, Mbappé has enjoyed great success. In addition to scoring 136 times in 182 appearances, the Frenchman has won three Ligue 1 titles and was 4th on the shortlist for the 2019 Ballon d'Or.

He is expected to get his move to the Santiago Bernabéu next season, albeit on a free transfer. Marca claims Los Blancos have already agreed a deal with PSG that will see Mbappé cross over to Spain in the summer of 2022, along with Borussia Dortmund powerhouse Erling Haaland and Mbappé's international teammate Paul Pogba.

That said, if the player asks to leave again next summer, his current employers will be powerless to stop him and this transfer saga might finally come to an end.
