Mbappé only signed a new contract with the Qatar-owned club last summer.

Kylian Mbappé wants to leave Paris Saint-Germain in January, according to reports in France.

The PSG forward is said to feel ‘betrayed’ by the club’s management and believes that they have reneged on promises that were made last summer when he signed a new contract.

Mbappè, 23, was expected to sign for Real Madrid on a free transfer at the end of last season. However, he completed a dramatic u-turn and renewed his deal with the French side for a further two years, with the option of another season.

Yet, just months into his new contract, the World Cup winner reportedly wants out.

Kylian Mbappe reportedly wants to leave PSG in January.

The striker wants to leave PSG in the next transfer window, which opens on January 1, according to the French publication Le Parisien.

Mbappé is said to feel ‘betrayed’ by PSG president Nasser Al-Khelaïfi and the club’s Qatari owners.

The French forward reportedly believes that the club have not kept their promises. He feels that he is not being played in his best position on the pitch by manager Christophe Galtier.

Mbappé is also said to believe that the club didn’t follow through on their promises for the summer transfer market, which may or may not be in relation to Neymar.

According to reports earlier this year, the 23-year-old wanted the club to sell Neymar. There were, however, no takers for the Brazilian forward, who remains at PSG.

Mbappé will undoubtedly be linked with a move to Real Madrid once again. But, according to Italian transfer expect Fabrizio Romano, PSG have no intention of selling the player. Elsewhere, there are reports in France that PSG would accept a bid of €400m for the forward.

Mbappé’s current contract expires at the end of the 2023/24 season, and he has the option to extend his deal for another season.

The forward joined PSG, his hometown team, from AS Monaco in 2017, initially on loan ahead of completing a transfer worth €180 the following year.

Mbappé has scored 182 goals in 228 games for PSG.
