While Kylian Mbappé has refused to discuss his future during Euro 2020, the subject continues to fill pages and air time in the French media.
Mbappé has yet to agree to a new deal at PSG that would extend his current contract beyond 2022, while Real Madrid are hoping to sign the French star this summer or next summer at the latest, when he could leave on a free transfer.
The latest news on the matter from France will be warmly received at the Bernabéu, with journalist Daniel Riolo assuring that the player has requested to leave PSG.
“I know that Mbappé has asked to leave, but it is complicated because first you have to find a club that has the money to pay him. But the latest development is that he really doesn’t want to stay,” said Riolo on RMC Sport’s After Foot programme. “If he doesn’t leave this summer, he will be free next season. And that is why Doha does not want to hear him speak.”
He added: “If Mbappé expresses that desire to leave, it means that he has to find a club and then PSG has to move to find him a replacement. But yes, the news is that Mbappé does not want to stay at PSG.”
