Bullying at work? PSG, Mbappe ‘release target’ training assignment French professional soccer Paris Saint-Germain (PSG)’s top goal scorer
Kylian Mbafe has been in a position to train with players to be released ahead of the opening of the new season.
Media such as the British BBC and Spain’s Marca reported on the 7th (Korean time) that PSG removed Mbappe from the first team training list, as the goal of the conflict deepened over the renewal of the contract.
Ahead of the opening of Ligue 1 this coming weekend, with the team undergoing final tempering, Mbappe, the ace of the French national team and the symbol of the club, is virtually excluded from the first team.
PSG assigned Mbappe to ‘loft group’ training, not first-team training.
The loft group is a term used in the French sports world to refer to ‘released players’. 스포츠토토
It is not a place for Mbappe, the 2022 World Cup scorer (Golden Boot) in Qatar.
The contract between PSG and Mbappe is until next summer.
PSG tried to extend the contract to get the money, but Mbappe did not accept it.
Mbappe is also refusing to transfer immediately to another club.
Saudi Arabia’s al-Hilal officials who visited Paris by offering a total of 700 million euros (approximately 987.8 billion won) were ‘left at the door’.
Mbappe does not bend his will to stay at PSG ‘as it is’ without extending his contract.
The plan is to sign a record-breaking contract when he becomes a free agent (FA) next year.
Real Madrid (Spain) is likely to be the next destination Mbappe dreams of.
It has been a long time since the confrontation between PSG, who is riding fast, and Mbappe, who will take care of his share, has entered into an ’emotional fight’.
In various promotional videos made by the PSG club, Mbappe is not even seen.
Mbappe was also excluded from the list of pre-season Asian tours that were recently held in Japan and Busan, Korea.

The French football players’ union criticized this as ‘bullying in the workplace’, but PSG did not care.
If this atmosphere continues, Mbappe is expected to miss the season opener against Lorient on the 13th.
It is currently unknown how long the conflict will continue as PSG president Nasser Al-Khelaifi is said to have been furious with Mbappe.
PSG are really building their squad as if they would go through a season without Mbappe.
The BBC reported that Portuguese national striker Gonzalo Hamus (Benfica)’s transfer to PSG has come to the brink of completion.
The transfer fee is 80 million euros (approximately 115 billion won).
Several big clubs have been scrambling to recruit Hamus, who raised his ransom by recording a hat-trick against Switzerland in the round of 16 of the Qatar World Cup.
