Kylian Mbappe reportedly wants to quit Paris Saint-Germain in January after the French giants broke a promise to him. The striker was told before he signed a new contract in May that his superstar team-mate Neymar would be departing the club, something that ultimately never happened. And Mbappe’s apparent desire to leave PSG just months after penning fresh terms is bad news for Liverpool, who have been tipped to sign him.
Mbappe became the most expensive teenager in the world when he left Monaco to join PSG for £162million in 2018. And he has since bagged an incredible 182 goals and 88 assists in 229 games for his current employers, helping them win four Ligue 1 titles in the process.
Mbapppe was heavily linked with a move to Real Madrid earlier this year. But he surprisingly penned fresh terms in Paris. And he has already found the back of the net 11 times in 12 matches this season.
But, according to Le Parisien, the 23-year-old feels betrayed by club chiefs Nasser Al-Khelaifi and Antero Henrique over unfulfilled promises. The duo promised to sign several top players, while also telling Mbappe that Neymar did not figure in the club’s long-term plans. And the France international could now be set to force a departure.

Liverpool have been one of the most successful English clubs in recent years and lifted the Champions League trophy in 2019, before getting their hands on the Premier League title for the first time a year later. And their achievements haven’t been a result of diva-like behaviour from players in their squad.
Klopp has built a winning culture at Anfield and patently targets players who have the right attitude to fit in. So even if the Reds can afford a prodigious transfer fee and Mbappe’s enormous wages, Klopp will need to ask himself whether the Frenchman really has a place on Merseyside.
