Soccer Twitter is abuzz with a fresh round of Kylian Mbappe-PSG-Real Madrid rumors.
After months of reported strife between the young French striker and PSG management, coaching, and teammates, even Fabrizio Romano is reporting that Mbappe wants out of Paris.
While Mbappe’s relationship with Neymar has fallen apart over the last few months, Mbappe’s issues with new PSG coach Christophe Galtier focus on the lack of a promised number 9 to play alongside the star, per ESPN.
The news breaks five months after Mbappe signed a three-year deal with PSG, which the French star now thinks was a mistake. Rumor has it, Mbappe’s eyes are set on Spain.
Though Real Madrid has shown more than a little interest in the star, the bad blood between Madrid and PSG’s presidents will make such a trade unlikely, according to ESPN insiders.
Listening to the grapevine, you’ll hear that Liverpool now leads the chase for Forbes’s top-earning football star, even if PSG says they have no intention of selling Mbappe in January.
