The soap around Kylian Mbappé also keeps tempers in the Paris Saint-Germain selection. Teammate Marco Verratti also learned that Mbappé has recently been put in Madrid.
The PSG vedette has been relentlessly linked to Real Madrid for years. When he recently showed up in the Spanish capital with teammate Achraf Hakimi, the media immediately went wild. “I had a day off and I got reports that he was in Madrid, that gave me a stomach ache,” Verratti laughs in conversation with Le Parisien. “Even though he told me afterwards: don‘t worry, I was on vacation. But we will wait and see.”
Mbappe is running out of his contract and it’s starting to look more and more like PSG can‘t keep him inboard. Verratti would find the dead zone. “He knows how I feel about it, he’s one of the best players on the planet right now. I would be a bad advisor, or at least a non-objective advisor.”
