Kylian Mbappe tells PSG he wants to leave the club

Published

on

Kylian Mbappe has sensationally informed Paris Saint-Germain that he wants to leave the club, sources have confirmed to 90min.

The 23-year-old penned a three-year contract extension in May, having looked nailed on to join Real Madrid on a free transfer, and claimed at the time that Paris was ‘his city’ and that he wanted to stay and win titles.

Mbappe has continued to dominate the headlines since then, amid rumours of a rift with teammate Neymar, and criticised PSG head coach manager Christophe Galtier, appointed in the summer to replace Mauricio Pochettino, at the weekend for his tactics in a now deleted social media post.

Galtier responded by claiming that Mbappe’s comments were made ‘in the heat of the moment’, but 90min understands that tensions have been building behind the scenes – to the extent that Mbappe has informed the club that he wants to leave.

Ideally, Mbappe would like to move to pastures new in January, but the 23-year-old recognises that a move to Real Madrid, or anybody else for that matter, will be difficult to facilitate during the season.

Sources have told 90min that Mbappe’s representatives have informed Real Madrid president Florentino Perez of his situation, with their relationship still strong despite his proposed move to the Bernabeu falling through over the summer after a last minute change of heart.

Mbappe remains a major target for Real Madrid and Perez, alongside Borussia Dortmund midfielder Jude Bellingham and Palmeiras wonderkid Endrick – two players that are seen as marquee arrivals in the years to come.

PSG president Nasser Al-Khelaifi, perhaps understandably, is far from happy with how relations have broken down with Mbappe, but it’s understood that he has promised the World Cup winner that he will not stand in his way – owing to the fact that he signed a new contract and did not leave on a free transfer.

Liverpool have been linked with a shock move for Mbappe, should an exit from PSG materialise, but it’s unclear at this stage whether the Premier League giants would be able, or indeed willing, to stump up the money needed to pay his astronomical wages.

Conor Coady responds to ‘daft’ question about Liverpool allegiance

Published

on


Conor Coady has told England teammate Jordan Henderson to do better in his goading after the Liverpool captain taunted him over his Everton connection.

Coady was a product of the Liverpool youth system and made a solitary appearance for his boyhood club in the 2012 Europa League. He has since moved on to Huddersfield Town and Wolves before joining Liverpool’s Merseyside rivals Everton on loan last summer.

Speaking on the latest episode of Lion’s Den from England’s World Cup camp, though, Henderson could not resist trying to wind up Coady by quizzing him on his allegiances.

“Conor, we are all England here,” Henderson said. “But what I really want to know is: are you blue or red?”

Henderson then started laughing, which prompted a similar response from Coady, who appeared both irritated and amused by the question.

“It’s so poor from him,” Coady said while smiling. “We have banter all the time. Of course, I am playing for Everton. He knows deep down.

“So, for him to come out there and ask that question is daft. Of course, I am blue. Of course, I am blue, without a shadow of a doubt.

“For him to say that…you know what I am going to go back there sit down and have a coffee with him. I will give him a bit. That’s nowhere near good enough from the big fella. Blue all day long.”

Everton have a clause allowing them to sign Coady permanently from Wolves this summer for a fee of just £4.5m.
