PSG Star Opted for ‘Flavorless’ Exit Strategy Ahead of Real Madrid Move, Ex-Player Reveals

On Friday, Paris Saint-Germain forward Kylian Mbappé announced that he’ll be leaving the club after this season, with his contract expiring next month. The 25-year-old posted a video lasting over three minutes sharing his plans to depart.

The 2018 FIFA World Cup winner expresses his thanks, admits to some mistakes, declares his love for the club, and announces his departure for “a new challenge.”

However, the manner in which Mbappé chose to announce his decision has not been without its critics. Daniel Riolo of RMC Sport was one of the first to voice his disapproval, and now Pascal Dupraz has joined in, adding his criticism to the growing chorus.

“I love my sport and the French league; it’s the only one I know, so maybe that’s why I love it so much,” Dupraz said on RMC Sport (h/t Le10Sport). “He managed to make me sad twice this week. First on Tuesday and then on Friday with that cold, flavorless announcement, not up to the level of the person he is. 

“That’s the only criticism I have of this player, whom I adore. It deserved a real press conference with journalists, to respect them as he has often done. They could have conveyed Kylian Mbappé’s emotions to us.”

Now, as the transfer saga nears its conclusion, everyone eagerly anticipates the official announcement of his signing with Real Madrid. Reports suggest that the Frenchman will delay his presentation as a Real Madrid player until after the UEFA Champions League final next month.

Meanwhile, PSG will begin searching for a way to replace their soon-to-be former star player.
