The French Footballers Union has come to the defense of Kylian Mbappe, accusing Paris Saint-Germain (PSG) of “moral harassment” after the club left the star forward out of their pre-season tour to Japan and South Korea. The omission has fueled speculations over Mbappe’s future and a potential free transfer to Real Madrid, as his current contract with PSG is set to expire in 2024, and he has decided not to extend it.
The ongoing fall-out between Mbappe and his current club has caught the attention of the French Footballers Union, which has raised concerns about the treatment of the player. The union stated that it could take legal action against PSG for their actions towards Mbappe.
PSG’s stance has been clear – they intend to sell Mbappe this summer to recoup some of the significant amount they invested in signing him permanently in 2018, rather than losing him on a free transfer next year. However, Mbappe reportedly plans to see out the remainder of his contract with the club and leave Paris next summer without any transfer fee.
As the situation unfolds, the French Footballers Union emphasized that players like Mbappe should enjoy the same working conditions as other professionals. They reminded club managers that pressuring an employee, such as through the deterioration of their working conditions, to force them to leave or accept the employer’s demands constitutes moral harassment, a practice condemned by French law.
Mbappe’s remarkable record at PSG, scoring 212 goals in 260 games and becoming the club’s leading goalscorer, has undoubtedly made him one of the most sought-after players in the world. As the tension between the player and the club intensifies, football fans eagerly await the outcome of this high-profile transfer saga.
