Ex-PSG sporting director Leonardo has told PSG  o ensure they sell Kylian Mbappe this summer.

Leonardo hailed Mbappé as a great player, but questioned his loyalty to PSG.

“For the good of PSG, I think the time has come for Mbappe to leave, whatever happens,” Leonardo told L’Equipe.

“Paris-Saint-Germain existed before Kylian Mbappé and will exist after him.

“He has been in Paris for six years and, in those six seasons, five different clubs have won the Champions League (Real Madrid in 2018 and 2022, Liverpool in 2019, Bayern Munich in 2020, Chelsea in 2021 and Manchester City in 2023), none of them which had Mbappé in their ranks. That means it’s totally possible to win this competition without him.

“Due to his behaviour in the last two years, Mbappé has shown that he is still not a player capable of really leading a team. 

“He is a great player, not a leader. He is a great goalscorer, not a playmaker. It is difficult to build a team around him.”
