While addressing the Indian diaspora at La Seine Musicale Center in Paris, PM Modi talked about Kylian Mbappe‘s popularity in India. He said, “French football player Kylian Mbappe is superhit among the youth in India. Mbappe is probably known to more people in India than in France, said PM Modi, in Paris.”

Mbappe has been the star of the headlines with the recent speculations rising about his departure from his current side Paris Saint Germain. This was following his announcement regarding his decision to leave the club next season in 2024.

PSG hierarchy, although, has reportedly been pretty disappointed by this gesture of Mbappe. They have now reportedly made their stand very clear that they won’t let Mbappe leave for free in 2024. So the player allegedly has only two options from the club’s end. Either He has to sign a new contract with the clun, or the club will find suitors for him this summer. The player has also made his stance clear, according to sources. Mbappe has said that he is going to stay at PSG for the rest of the season.

Kylian Mbappe has described his club Paris St Germain as a “divisive team”. This is amidst a contract standoff between the player and the club. The relationship between both parties deteriorated after Mbappe announced his decision that he would not renew his contract which expires at the end of next season. This practically means he can leave for free in June 2024.

In the latest interview, Mbappe talked about PSG being a divisive club. He said, “I think that playing for PSG doesn’t help much because it’s a divisive team, a divisive club. We did what we could, period. You have to talk to the people who make the team, who organize the squad, who build this club.”

Mbappe has been Ligue 1’s top scorer in the last five seasons. The French striker has been ready as he has with a move to Real Madrid. PSG had won nine of the last 11 Ligue 1 titles. But Mbappe’s frustration was with the club’s performances in the Champions League. It has been a trophy the French giants have never won.
