Mbapp shocked the world after he performed one of the biggest transfer U-turns in football transfer history last May. Despite his move to Real Madrid being virtually done at the time, with just his signature needed to confirm the move, Mbapp decided to stay at PSG.
It was on the 21st May 2022, when the party began in Paris. The Frenchman stepped on the Parc des Princes pitch to announce that he would be renewing with PSG until 2025, to the delight of almost 50,000 jubilant fans. “I’m happy to stay here, at this club, in this city, in Paris. I’m overwhelmed to continue here and I hope to continue winning titles at this club with all of you. Thank you so much!”, he said. The atmosphere was electric, everyone was happy.
I’m happy to stay here, at this club, in this city, in Paris.
Fast forward just 5 months and the situation couldn’t be more different. As exclusively reported by Marca, after several turbulent months (for various reasons), the rupture between Mbapp and the club has been confirmed. There has been a major fall-out, so much so that striker wants to leave the club this coming January. It’s still unknown if this is a viable option, but Liverpool is rumored to be an option.
Mbapp will now undoubtedly regret those words and his decision to renew at the club. It certainly hasn’t gone to plan. It remains to be seen whether there’s a solution to the Mbapp problem.
