Paris Saint-Germain star Kylian Mbappe reportedly had a conversation with head coach Luis Enrique as he is not happy with the current treatment after being substituted in the last two matches.

Mbappe has been a standout player for PSG for many years, establishing himself as one of the top talents in world football. However, Enrique has recently begun substituting him off early in matches.

This development coincided with Mbappe engaging in talks over a potential transfer to Real Madrid in the summer. It recently emerged that he has decided to depart PSG at the end of his contract, according to ESPN.

The report suggested that Mbappe feels he is being penalised by Enrique for his decision to leave, and he intends to address the matter with his manager.

However, it appears that the Spanish tactician insisted that his decisions regarding Mbappe are unrelated to the player's potential move to the Bernabeu.

It is now widely speculated that Mbappe will indeed join Madrid at the conclusion of this season, which could potentially disrupt PSG's campaign.

The looming prospect of their star player departing presents a significant unwanted distraction for the manager and the rest of the team, potentially impacting morale in the coming weeks and months.

While Enrique has largely performed well at PSG this season, navigating this situation presents a challenging test for him until the end of the campaign.

Meanwhile, Mbappe appears poised to become an exciting addition to Los Blancos, even if a deal has not yet been finalised. The 25-year-old is regarded as one of the most gifted players of his generation and would fit seamlessly as a 'Galactico' signing in the Spanish capital.

Remember, Madrid have been trying to sign Mbappe since his AS Monaco days in 2017-18 but the player decided to join PSG on a €180 million deal.

The deal was likely to happen last summer after the 25-year-old sent a letter to the French club saying that he would not extend his contract till 2025.

However, as per multiple reports, everything between the two parties has been finalised and only an official announcement is pending after which the transfer will be confirmed.
