PSG take Kylian Mbappe bust-up to next level as exit looms

Paris Saint-Germain have cranked up war with their vexed superstar Kylian Mbappe after withdrawing his shirt from the club’s megastore in Paris.

Get French Football News leaked a video on Twitter picturing the absence of the forward’s jersey from the club shop in the capital.

The withdrawal of Mbappe’s kit from the store is part of a comprehensive action launched by PSG against their wantaway ace after they took down his poster from the Parc des Prineces’ exterior.

Nasser Al-Khelaifi fired a warning shot to the 24-year-old last month, urging him to either renew his contract or pack his bags amid speculation of a blockbuster move to Real Madrid.

The France captain’s deal runs out in less than 12 months, and he has already informed the club of his unwillingness to put pen to paper on a new contract.

Mbappe looks hellbent on joining Los Blancos once his contract at PSG expires next summer, but Al-Khelaifi is determined to ruin his plans in the coming weeks.

He is so desperate to resume his career in Spain that he turned down the most lucrative contract offer in football history last month, rejecting Al-Hilal’s one-year bid worth an earth-shattering €700 million.

While the leading figures at the Santiago Bernabeu remain radio silent regarding the ongoing saga in Paris, PSG are doing everything they can to cash in on Mbappe this summer.

Les Parisiens are poised to earn a transfer fee from their £250m asset before he can waltz away for free, putting a tremendous amount of pressure on the Frenchman to leave as soon as possible.

Already sentenced to train with the reserve squad, Mbappe finds himself in a difficult spot, as Los Blancos have shown no interest in matching PSG’s requests.

Madrid boss Carlo Ancelotti could be rubbing his hands behind the scenes, but there’s been no official approach from the record-time European champions.
