I Never Made Any Move To Leave PSG In January – Kylian Mbappe

Paris Saint-Germain attacker Kylian Mbappe has debunked reports on social media that he plans to leave the club in January.

According to the claims being circulated, Mbappe felt ‘betrayed’ by PSG president Nasser Al-Khelaifi and desired to leave the Ligue 1 champions as soon as possible.

But responding to the report, the 24-year-old said he was shocked by the news, “I never asked for my departure in January.”

“The information that came out on the day of the [Champions League match against Benfica], I did not understand it. I am not involved in this information neither directly nor indirectly,” Mbappe told reporters after PSG’s 1-0 win over Marseille in Ligue 1 on Sunday.

“I was as shocked by this news as everyone else. People may think I’m involved, I’m not at all.

“I was taking a nap, my entourage was at my little brother’s game. We were stunned when we found out.

“Afterwards, we had to deal with it, we had a match to play. I just wanted to say that it’s completely false, I’m very happy here,” Mbappe added.
