Kylian Mbappe considering PSG exit after World Cup defeat, Real Madrid attentive
Kylian Mbappe will go down as one of the unluckiest players in World Cup history after his French side lost to Argentina in the final despite his extraordinary hat-trick.
And according to a report from Diario SPORT, the World Cup defeat has left Mbappe frustrated and could catapult his desire to leave Paris Saint-Germain in the near future.
Even before the start of the World Cup, Mbappe was at odds with the PSG board and was not entirely happy with the club’s project. Their underperformance in European competitions was also a telling factor behind his uneasiness at the club.
Mbappe was expected to arrive in Paris today and reflect on his situation at PSG. Missing out on the FIFA World Cup title could play a part in speeding up the process of his potential departure from the club.
Although the forward realises that a January exit is next to impossible, he could eye for an exit at the end of the season. To that end, Real Madrid are attentive to the situation and are keeping close track of his relationship with the PSG board.
Even though the Whites had denied the possibility of splashing the cash on Mbappe earlier this season, his blazing performances in the World Cup could shift the minds of those in charge of the capital outfit.
Real Madrid, though, are facing stiff competition from Manchester United and Liverpool. Both the Premier League giants are attentive to the situation and want to bring the Frenchman to the English shores.
From Mbappe’s side, there is hope that PSG will understand the situation and consider offers even under the €150 million mark. The player, for his part, is willing to lower his salary to leave the PSG setup, knowing no other club in the world can offer him the same financial package.

U-turn? Benzema hints at Real Madrid stay during ceremony: “Reality is not the internet”
There has been a lot of talk around Karim Benzema’s situation over the course of the last week or so, with reports claiming that the Frenchman was on his way out of the Santiago Bernabeu.
With his contract expiring at the end of the season, it was reported that Benzema was joining Al Ittihad as part of an incredible deal worth nearly €200 million. The striker was also offered 100% of his image rights and advertising deals by the Saudi government.
Over the last day or so, it has been reported that the move is all but official at the moment, as Benzema has accepted the offer, and will soon inform Real Madrid about it.
Benzema was awarded the MARCA Leyenda awards for contribution to sports today, and speaking during it, he dropped a rather cryptic message about his future – one that says quite the opposite to what has been in the news recently.
“Speak to the fans? Speak about what? Why should I speak of the future if I’m in Madrid?”, Benzema said.
“It’s the internet speaking, and reality is not the internet,” he added.
This certainly falls away from the departure line for Benzema, who was reportedly already contemplating his life away from Madrid.
At first, though, he was hesitant about speaking about his future, saying, “Staying or leaving Real Madrid? At the moment, I’m here…we have a game on Saturday.”
He repeatedly talked about the fans, calling them the best in world football. He also said, “I know how much Real Madrid fans love me. I feel that when I’m on the pitch, I give my best for them, always.”
“I always say that we play with 11 on the pitch but also with a crucial factor, Real Madrid fans,” Benzema concluded.

This is really sad for me, but good for Mbappé because he choose money over passion. Now he might change all that! What a good striker in the World Cup for making a hat-trick in the finals which shocker everyone in the world.
