Paris Saint-Germain attacker Kylian Mbappe is reportedly frustrated at the club’s delays in paying salaries, according to L’Equipe (via GFFN)
The French paper reports that these issues, plus his disappointment with the club’s transfer business, caused his desire to leave a few weeks ago.
On the eve of PSG’s Champions League clash against Benfica in early October, news broke that Mbappe was dissatisfied with Les Parisiens and wanted out.
The news broke from the Spanish paper Marca as they claimed the 23-year-old was unhappy despite only signing a new contract months ago.
The Frenchman reportedly had not received his September wages, and news started circulating about his future.
PSG subsequently paid Mbappe’s wages, but they were not complete. Their finances are taking a hit due to massive salaries.
His entourage immediately confronted PSG, and they were frustrated by the answers they received.
PSG’s press team told L’Équipe that Mbappe received all the wages and bonuses owed to him to date. They added that ‘like in all clubs, there are sometimes delays due to payment methods’.
Mbappe’s team has refused to comment on the issue.
Despite the many off-field issues, Mbappe has continued to shine for PSG. The attacker opened the scoring to start PSG’s 5-0 thrashing of Auxerre in their last Ligue 1 game.
Mbappe has climbed to the top of the scoring charts with 12 goals. He sits just above Neymar.
He should be higher on the assist charts. He has only two despite creating 12 big chances in the league. While everyone lauds his goalscoring, his playmaking deserves just as much attention.
Didier Deschamps’ men will be out for revenge after Denmark beat them twice in the Nations League earlier this year.
