Kylian Mbappe is upset with Paris Saint-Germain and wants a January move | Paris Saint-Germain

Kylian Mbappe is unhappy at PSG and wants to leave in January, although the club has no intention of selling the striker after his signature. A new three-year contract in May.

Mbappe has not been a fan of PSG’s work in the summer transfer market and is annoyed that he has been asked to play almost every game this season as the 9th rather than his preferred position from the left.

The situation between the club and the player is tense but PSG believes they have allowed their discontent to pressure them and intends to turn down any offers for the 23-year-old.

Mbappe was expected to leave PSG for Real Madrid last summer, but he surprised the Spanish club by pledging his future to the team he joined from Monaco in 2017.

“I am convinced that here I can continue to develop within a club that gives itself all the means to perform at the highest level,” the France international said at the time. He had expected PSG to take a different approach to the market than that of football consultant, Luis Campos.
