Kylian Mbappe, the forward for Paris Saint-Germain, has disputed claims/reports that he wants 14 people to leave the club this summer as part of a big revamp.
The Frenchman was recently being criticized for using Real Madrid as bait to increase his demands at PSG as he eventually ended up staying in France.
After receiving a £100 million signing-on fee from PSG, Mbappe becomes the highest-paid footballer in the world, earning nearly £1 million each week. The club has also made image rights concessions, with Mbappe set to get bonuses for goals, Ballon d’Or honours, and Champions League triumphs.
Mbappe claiming reports to be Fake
The 23-year-old was heavily connected with a free transfer to Real Madrid ahead of the 2022-23 season. However, he has decided to stay with the Parisians by signing a new three-year contract. Thus, for this, the Frenchman was recently being criticized for using Real Madrid as a bait to increase his demands at PSG.
Mbappe’s lucrative new contract reportedly gives him more power over the club’s operations, including decisions about the futures of players and employees.
According to recent rumours in the media, Mbappe has compiled a 14-man blacklist that includes important figures at the club.
The list included key part of the club such as manager Mauricio Pochettino and star striker Neymar. Mbappe, on the other hand, has resorted to Twitter to reject such rumors prevailing in the footballing world.
The French forward replied to a tweet from SPORTbible – which has since been deleted – with the word “FAKE.”
Pochettino, who has little over a year left on his PSG contract, recently declared his intention to lead the Ligue 1 champions into the 2022-23 season.
Neymar has also stated publicly that he wants to continue at PSG as the 30-year-old striker is under contract with the club until the summer of 2025.
