Kylian Mbappe hinted that he wanted to leave Paris Saint-Germain as he was upset at being left out of the team for a couple of matches in April, according to a report.
Paris Saint-Germain striker Kylian Mbappe is reportedly angry with manager Thomas Tuchel after missing out on the Golden Shoe award.
Mbappe put European football’s biggest clubs on red alert on Sunday evening when hinting that he may seek a move away from the Parc des Prices this summer.
The France international, who joined PSG from Monaco in a £116m deal two years ago, wants be given “more responsibility” and is potentially open to joining another club to fulfil his desire.
Spanish outlet Marca suggests that part of Mbappe’s comments were aimed at boss Tuchel after he was left out for the league games against Strasbourg and Nantes in April, which he allegedly believes cost him the chance to finish above Barcelona’s Lionel Messi as Europe’s most prolific goalscorer.
Mbappe’s return of 32 goals is 10 better than closest challenger Nicolas Pepe in the Ligue 1 scoring charts, but he is said to have set his sights on closing down Messi, who is four goals clear.
Real Madrid are likely to be the only side capable of signing the World Cup winner due to his rumoured £241m valuation.
