Speaking to RMC Sport in an interview that will air in full on Tuesday, PSG attacker Kylian Mbappé confirms for the first time that he asked to leave the club this summer.
“I asked to leave, because from the moment where I did not want to extend, I wanted for the club to receive a transfer fee so that they could bring in a quality replacement. This club has given me a lot, I have always been happy, the 4 years I have had here, and I still am. I said it early enough so that the club could react. I wanted everyone to come out of this stronger, that we leave hand in hand, to Mae a good deal and I respected that. I said, if you don’t want me to go I will stay.”
