Kylian Mbappé (23) considers PSG’s summer transfer window to have been a “failure,” according to RMC. The French forward is reportedly unhappy with the club’s inability to recruit a world-class no.9.
PSG’s sporting adviser Luis Campos has previously stated in an interview with Rothen S’enflamme that he believed that the summer window was a failure. According to RMC, Mbappé privately shares this opinion.
During the international break, Mbappé said that he had “lots more freedom” when playing for the national side. Responding to those comments, his manager at PSG, Christophe Galtier, responded, “His analysis is fair. He isn’t in the same configuration here as he is with the French national team. It is a conversation I had with him during the pre-season and one that I also had with the president and Luis Campos.”
He continued, “We were all convinced that we needed a fourth player with a different profile. This fourth player never came. It’s a shame that that’s how it is. Kylian has this reference player in the national team. We have a different way of playing, different profiles, but ones that are also interesting. The technical relationship between Neymar, Lionel Messi and Mbappé is different to what you see with the national team.”
PSG were linked with no.9’s such as Robert Lewandowski and Gianluca Scamacca. According to sources contacted by Get French Football News, PSG had agreed personal terms with the latter. However, that extra striker never arrived.
