Mbappe: I Was Disappointed Not Leaving PSG



PSG ace Kylian Mbappe has revisited missing a move to Real Madrid last summer.

Mbappe saw offers of €160m and €180m from Real Madrid turned down by PSG in August. He is now set to come off contract in June.
He recalled: “During the Euro Cup they asked me a lot of questions. I talked a lot with my parents, I knew I wanted to leave. My parents told me to concentrate on the pitch. Maybe I was putting too much energy into other things.
“Disappointed with not leaving? A little. It’s not easy, but whatever happened, I was going to play for a great club. I’m Parisian, I feel great, but I wanted to discover something else.”
Asked about a reputation of being selfish, Mbappe responded: “I have the best assists in the French championship and in the Champions League, and that shows that I am not a selfish player who only thinks about scoring. I know I can do even better.”
