Kylian Mbappe and his transfer saga takes a new turn this weekend as French Players Union has decided to vie with court proceedings against PSG as the French champions has decided to leave their superstar out of their squad in the pre-season tour of Japan and South Korea. Luis Enrique led side has decided to exclude Mbappe from the squad which will prepare for the season with some friendlies in Asia.
Players’ body threatens legal proceedings
Kylian Mbappe has reportedly been left out of the squad which is travelling to Asia for pre-season tour which comprises friendlies in Japan and South Korea. Prior to that, he was speculated to have decided on his future when he went against extending his contract, thus open to joining new clubs, with several heavyweights like Real Madrid and Chelsea heavily linked with his move. His current contract will expire next season, after which, he is supposed to leave for free. But, his refusal for a contract extension has not gone well with the club officials as he has been warned about the situation where he can be sold immediately, lest he dos not sign a new deal.
As a result, France’s National Union of Professional Footballers (UNFP) might go to court where they have warned the club officials if they compel the player for accepting a summer transfer.
PSG’s decision has not received well with Players Union
To elevate pressure on Mbappe, the club has decided not to take him to Asian tour, which purposefully has not gone down well with the Players’ Union. They have released an official statement, blasting PSG’s tactics of excluding him and compelling him to accept poorer working facilities, which read, “These players – all of them – must enjoy the same working conditions as the rest of the professional workforce. “
They further continued, “The UNFP feels it would be useful to remind managers that putting pressure on an employee – via the deterioration of their working conditions, for example – to force them to leave or accept what the employer wants constitutes moral harassment, which French law firmly condemns. So, yes, the UNFP reserves the right to take civil and criminal action against any club that behaves in this way. “
Spain or Saudi Arab, where will Mbappe go next?
After Mbappe’s trifle with PSG broke out, several heavyweights have queued to sign the superstar. Real Madrid, Spanish heavyweights are spearheading the force to sign him, whereas Al-Ahli, Saudi Pro League club has also rumored to have looking for the superstar as they have monitored the situation of Mbappe over the last few days. But, sources close to Mbappe suggest he will make a move to the Spanish capital, as they have been a long time suitor for the French World Cup winner.
