Mbappe, 22, said in a radio interview, excerpts of which were published on the Monte Carlo website: “My position was clear, I wanted to leave and I notified everyone of this early, including the officials.”
And the 2018 World Cup champion continued: “I said at the end of July I wanted to leave. I told them at the end if you didn’t want me to leave, I would stay. Some said I refused 6 or 7 offers for an extension, and that I didn’t want to talk to Leonardo anymore, that’s the matter. It’s not true at all.”
And the player, who Real Madrid sought to include for 180 million euros, according to reports at the time: “I was told: Mbappe now you have to speak to the president (Qatari Nasser Al-Khalafi), I reject the news that was promoted that I tried to leave as a thief, I asked to leave because from the moment I did not respond.” Extending the contract (ends in the summer of 2022), I wanted the club to benefit (financially) to compensate for my transfer with a good player.”
And the player, who joined the Parisian from Monaco for 180 million euros in 2017, added: “Paris is a club that gave me a lot, and I was happy here for 4 years and I still am. I announced it early enough so that the club could achieve my desire. I wanted it to come out. Everyone is great and hand in hand it’s a good deal, and I respect that.”
Of course, Mbappe’s talk will increase fears within the Parisian club about the possibility of him leaving for free next summer, who is considered one of the best players in the world.
