Kylian Mbappe ‘fed up’ with PSG, Real Madrid move imminent?
The city of Madrid awaits the arrival of its next global star in June. Kylian Mbappe’s arrival is just a matter of time as he patiently runs down his contract with Paris-Saint Germain.
PSG have done everything in their capacity to get Mbappe to sign a contract extension with them. However, the Frenchman has turned down the club’s proposals repeatedly.
While one of the reasons is certainly his dream of joining Los Blancos, another important factor is PSG’s continued struggles.
According to reports from Diario AS, Mbappe openly expressed his frustration to an international teammate. Right after joining the international team camp, he told Pogba, ”I am fed up.”
The Parisiens have had a forgettable few weeks across competitions, losing four of their last six games. Apart from their humiliating 3-1 defeat to Real Madrid in the Champions League, they dropped points against OGC Nice and FC Nantes too. Just ahead of the international break, they lost 3-0 to AS Monaco.
Mbappe has scored 15 goals and provided 10 assists in the league alone for PSG this season. To be in a team losing so frequently after producing such individual numbers can indeed be frustrating.
The Frenchman expressing his feelings to Pogba is a depiction of how desperately he wants a move away from Parc des Princes.
Mbappe already has a verbal agreement in place with Real Madrid and will join on a free transfer come June. Alongside Vinicius Jr and Karim Benzema, he will be part of a forward trio that can dominate world football.

Real Madrid offered the chance to sign Brazilian striker, one of 4-5 names on radar
There is no secret that Real Madrid might consider a move for a new striker in the coming summer. With Karim Benzema slowly nearing the end of his career, the club are looking for a viable alternative ahead of the new season.
Carlo Ancelotti has been left impressed by the performances of Rodrygo in the centre forward position. But the club could still use the services of a more recognised option in the number nine position.
The Spanish giants are reportedly assessing La Liga for a potential low-cost option. But they are also open to looking through in other leagues, in their bid to add more depth in the attacking department.
To that end, Fabrizio Romano claims Real Madrid are eyeing a swoop for Roberto Firmino. The Liverpool star has become the latest player to be shortlisted by Los Blancos, with his current contract at Liverpool expiring at the end of the season.
Formerly of TSG Hoffenheim, Firmino has a stellar track record of performing in Europe. He has scored 110 goals in 361 competitive matches during his time at Liverpool, winning the Premier League and the Champions League title.
A centre forward by trade, Roberto is known for his tactical flexibility and the ability to shift into wider areas to build up the player.
It makes him an appealing target for Real Madrid, who would prefer a versatile striker in their ranks that can not only provide cover for Benzema but also the likes of Vinicius Junior and Rodrygo.
Real Madrid, though, are yet to hold any discussions with Roberto Firmino just yet. He has just been added to the list of targets and one would expect the Spanish giants to make a move once the season is over and the player becomes a free agent.
