Kylian Mbappe wants to leave Paris Saint-Germain F.C. As shocking as it sounds, these rumours seem authentic.

In the last 72 odd hours, there have been countless rumours about Kylian Mbappe wanting to quit Paris Saint-Germain F.C. because he feels betrayed by the club administration. Unfortunately, this news comes right after he signed an extension till 2025.

It is hardly surprising that he wishes to join Real Madrid. However, PSG F.C. has stated that they will sell him to any football club other than Real Madrid. The relationship between the two clubs has dwindled since the Mbappe transfer saga last summer. That is where the transfer link to Liverpool has been re-established and is doing the rounds on social media.

According to a source in RMC Sport, the bridges have been badly burned, and the French superstar is ready to quit Paris Saint-Germain F.C. as soon as the January 2023 transfer window opens. Some rumours say that he will leave at the end of the season.

Many fans are shocked that a player playing alongside the world’s best talent like Lionel Messi and Neymar wants to leave. However, the gossip is that he wants to quit for those reasons.

The Mbappe to Liverpool link has lingered in the background for quite some time. However, according to journalist Santi Aouna, Liverpool was the football club that expressed strong interest in Kylian Mbappe and offered roughly €400 million for his services during the summer transfer window.

Now you can only imagine that this came as a shock to most Liverpool fans, given their net spending over the last few seasons, even after winning major trophies. So the word around the Liverpool faithful is ‘Mbappe will NOT join Liverpool.’ But then, it’s the hope that kills you.

It would undoubtedly be a fantastic coup for the club. Jurgen Klopp and Kylian Mbappe have publicly expressed their respect for one another and have done so more than once. However, many Liverpool fans are divided on whether a player + cash deal featuring Mohamed Salah for Mbappe would make sense.

It is important to note that Mo Salah will be 31 after the season and will have just two years remaining on his contract.

Premier League fans will be in for a thrill if this transfer goes through. Erling Haaland has taken the league by storm and seems to be going on to break records. Imagine if he had Mbappe compete within the same league. This could be the start of the new age “Messi v Ronaldo” story.

Only time will tell if Mbappe will leave Paris Saint-Germain F.C. and join another club.
