Paris Saint-Germain forward, Kylian Mbappe has confirmed that he asked to leave the Ligue 1 club during the transfer window.
Mbappe has confirmed that he wanted to be out of the club, but that he eventually agreed to stay as he wanted a deal to be sorted in a way that suited everyone.
“I asked to leave, 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. This club has given me a lot , I’ve always been happy, the four years I have had here, and I still am. I said it early enough so that the club could react,” Mbappe told RMC Sport.
“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.” He added.
PSG will no doubt be pleased they were able to keep hold of Mbappe for another season. However, there could be an issue next summer as Mbappe is heading towards being a free agent, and all clubs all over the world will surely be lining up to pounce.
