According to rumours, France’s Kylian Mbappe and his club Paris-Saint Germain’s relationship has deteriorated to the point where the footballer wishes to quit the club.

Mbappe signed a three-year contract deal with strong Ligue 1 club Paris-Saint Germain in May.

However, a report in Marca, citing individuals close to the situation, claims that Mbappe wants to conclude his contract and leave the club in January.

The report further stated that “the French striker would like to sign for Real Madrid, but the French club would only open the doors for him to leave for Liverpool.”

Paris Saint-Germain coach Christophe Galtier acknowledged Kylian Mbappe’s claims that he has greater flexibility playing for France last month, stating that the star forward’s club job is “more restricted.”

Mbappe made the statements after scoring in France’s 2-0 win over Austria in the UEFA Nations League, as the country narrowly averted relegation from the top flight.

The 23-year-old stated he was required to “do different things” for France, when he played with Olivier Giroud in Karim Benzema’s absence, than for PSG.

“His analysis is right. He’s not in the same set-up with us as he is in the national team,” Galtier told reporters in September.

“He’s certainly much more restricted up front with us, given the type of players we have, but I don’t think he has less freedom.”

Galtier said the fact PSG didn’t sign a classic centre-forward in the summer meant Mbappe had become more of a focal point in the attack who brings Lionel Messi and Neymar into play.

“We were convinced we needed a fourth player with a different profile, to have different solutions and options. This player never arrived, it’s a shame but that’s how it is,” said Galtier, whose unbeaten side are two points clear of Marseille at the top of Ligue 1.

“Mbappe has this type of player in the France team with Olivier Giroud. We don’t have the same but we have other profiles.”
