Kylian Mbappé Benched: Is a Move to Real Madrid Imminent?

Star player or not, Kylian Mbappé (25) had to leave PSG after 65 minutes – despite being 0-1 behind. Trainer Luis Enrique did not spare the Frenchman afterwards. “If I think he should play, he will play. I don’t give anyone playing minutes. Everyone has to earn it.”

With a face like thunder and a very weak handshake with Gonçalo Ramos, an invisible Mbappé left the Prinsenpark where he has shone so often. PSG was 0-1 down at that time in a weak match against Rennes.

The change immediately brings to mind the transfer news surrounding the French star player. According to Spanish, French and British media, Mbappé will leave for Real Madrid after this season. In any case, it would have to wait until the moment it turns out that PSG and Real will no longer be able to meet each other in the Champions League this year, for the deal to be officialized.

LOOK. Should Mbappe go to Real Madrid?

Luis Enrique was immediately asked about the situation at his press conference. “Sooner or later it will happen and we will have to get used to playing without Kylian. If I think he should play, he will play. If I see reasons not to let him play, then it won’t happen,” said the PSG coach.

What followed was sneer after sneer. “Every basic player in this team must find it a great opportunity to play. That’s what I’m looking for and that’s what I already see with my players.” Enrique did not name Mbappé, but it was clear to those who listen. “I don’t give anyone playing minutes. Everyone has to earn it. If I see someone on the field who is not performing well or not at the right level, I will replace him. I have a large group with many options.”

PSG somewhat corrected the situation in minute 97. Gonçalo Ramos, Mbappé’s replacement, equalized from the spot.

According to BBC, an agreement between Mbappé and Real is a fact: “15 million euros per season and 150 million signing premium”
