Luis Campos refuses to rule out Kylian Mbappe Paris Saint-Germain exit

Paris Saint-Germain football advisor Luis Campos has refused to rule out the possibility of Kylian Mbappe leaving the club in the future.

The 23-year-old snubbed interest from Real Madrid earlier this year to sign a lucrative new deal at the Parc des Princes until 2025, but his future is still being called into question.

Since putting pen to paper on his fresh terms, it has been reported that Mbappe has been left ‘betrayed’ by PSG due to promises made at the time of his deal that have not been fulfilled.

It has been alleged that Mbappe harbours a new desire to leave the French champions, although he has denied directly asking for a move away.

However, speaking to reporters at a recent press conference, Campos has claimed that Mbappe could play in “any league” although he remains content in the French capital.

“”I love LaLiga, but the decision to play in Spain is his, not mine. Kylian could go on to play in any league, but at the moment I think he is doing really well in France and at PSG,” Marca quotes Campos as saying.

“Football has a short memory, and football also often gives us very important lessons. I think Kylian has made his decision to stay at PSG, and now the club has to enjoy his quality.

“I don’t know what will happen tomorrow, the important thing is to enjoy him with us now. We have a great connection because I met him when he was 14 years old. I don’t only have a professional relationship with Kylian, I also have a friendship. He grew up with me.”

Mbappe has enjoyed a prolific campaign alongside Lionel Messi and Neymar in PSG’s fearsome front three this term, coming up with 19 goals and five assists in 20 appearances in all tournaments.

The former Monaco starlet now boasts 190 goals and 93 assists in 237 outings for Les Parisiens since arriving in 2017, and he has also enjoyed a strong start to the 2022 World Cup with defending champions France.

Mbappe already has two goals and two assists to boast from France’s wins over Australia and Denmark, seeing Les Bleus become the first team to qualify for the last 16.

Galtier was also recently questioned on claims that Mbappe wants to leave, but the 56-year-old is confident that the attacker’s heart lies in Paris, telling Marca: “When a player is happy in a place, he has no reason to leave. To be happy you have to enjoy.

“From the moment that the player enjoys himself on the field and that he feels that he is in a team that can win and that can conquer great challenges, he has no reason to leave.

“I think it was not the money. Because world-class players whether in Spain, England or France win it. They are not for the money. I think Kylian simply loves PSG. If he’s happy, why shouldn’t Kylian be here next season?”

Mbappe is expected to start a third World Cup game in a row when France complete their run in Group D against Tunisia on Tuesday.
