“If he wants to leave, we will not hold him back,” Leonardo clears the air on Mbappe transfer rumours

PSG’s Sporting Director, Leonardo has said that Kylian Mbappe wants to leave the club and they will not hold him back.

Speaking with RMC Sport, Leonardo said: “Kylian Mbappe wants to leave, that seems clear. If Real Madrid are making an offer, that seems clear… Me, I am giving a position, that, I think, is clear for everyone. “We cannot, the week before the end of the window, change our plans. If he wants to leave, we will not hold him back, but on our terms.”

He also confirmed that the 22-year-old World Cup winner has rejected two renewal proposals from the French club. “Our position has always been to keep Kylian, to extend his contract, that has always been our aim and that is still the case. “We made two significant offers to Kylian: one at the level of the top players in our squad two months ago and one above that of those players very recently. We want to prove to him that he is an important player, at the centre of our project, but not above the project.”

Real Madrid offered a €160million bid earlier in the week for the French forward.
