The summer transfer window has been a tumultuous one for Paris Saint-Germain (PSG), especially when it comes to their star player Kylian Mbappe. The uncertainty surrounding Mbappe’s future at the club has been a subject of much speculation and debate. Despite this, PSG has managed to make some significant signings, although one recent addition has snubbed Mbappe in a shocking interview.

PSG has experienced heavy losses in the transfer window, bidding farewell to stars such as Lionel Messi, Neymar, and Sergio Ramos. However, the club has worked tirelessly to recover from these departures and bolster their squad. The signings of the likes of Marco Ascensio, Ousmane Dembele, and most recently Randal Kolo Muani are a testament to their determination.

Kolo Muani, who refused to train with his previous club Eintracht Frankfurt, had long desired a move to PSG. His dreams came true just a few days ago when he officially joined the French giants. However, this acquisition didn’t come cheap, as PSG had to spend a staggering $96,960,000, including add-ons, to secure the services of the 24-year-old French star.

After the completion of the transfer, Kolo Muani sat down for an interview, during which he answered several questions. One particular question posed to him has left everyone astonished. He was asked to name his favorite PSG legend, expecting the obvious choice of Kylian Mbappe. To the surprise of many, Kolo Muani instead named former PSG center-back Mamadou Sakho.

This revelation has taken the soccer world by storm. Mbappe, with his 215 goals for the club, holds the record as PSG’s all-time leading goal scorer and has been instrumental in the team’s success, helping them clinch 13 trophies. But it looks like Sakho’s tackles and challenges left more of a mark on the young star’s mind. Regarding Kylian Mbappe, this is not the first time in recent times that he has been passed over. Spanish giants, Real Madrid recently “100%” shut their doors to the Frenchman.

Throughout the transfer window, there has been a cloud of uncertainty surrounding the relationship between Mbappe and PSG. The player’s refusal to extend his contract and PSG’s decision to remove him from the first-team list led many to believe that Real Madrid would be able to secure his services. However, Madrid Coach Carlo Ancelotti put an end to these speculations by stating that the club has no intention of making any further signings.

Ancelotti confidently declared, “We will not sign any other player, it’s 100% over. Our squad has been closed and so it’s finished”. This decision could be attributed to Ancelotti’s faith in the current squad or perhaps it is due to the exorbitant price tag of $270 million set by PSG for Mbappe’s acquisition. It is possible that Real Madrid is choosing to bide their time and wait until next season when Mbappe will become a free agent.
