Mbappe missed out one major name

Fans have noticed that there was name missing from Kylian Mbappe’s list of thank yous in his Paris Saint-Germain farewell message.

After what feels like an eternity, Mbappe finally confirmed publicly that season would be his last at the French giants as he moves on.

The expectation is that he will join Real Madrid in the summer.

In a message to supporters, he said: “I’ve always said that I would speak with you when the time comes.

“It’s my last year at Paris St-Germain. I will not extend and the adventure will come to an end in a few weeks.”

Mbappe added: “It’s a lot of emotions, many years where I had the chance and the great honour to be a member of the biggest French club, one of the best in the world.

“It allowed me to arrive here, to have my first experience in a club with a lot of pressure, to grow as a player of course, by being alongside some of the best in history, some of the greatest champions.

“It’s hard and I never thought it would be this difficult to announce that. But I think I needed this, a new challenge, after seven years.”

Among those to be thanked, Mbappe named all of his managers, playing staff and even sporting directors Leonardo and Luis Campos were mentioned.

However, fans noticed that PSG president Nasser Al-Khelaif wasn’t named and have even speculated that it may have been intentional.

“I watched it twice and didn’t notice that. You right, that is quite interesting given that he gave him the keys to the club,” wrote one person.

A second said: “Nasser blocked his move in 2021 he held that grudge…

“Hadn’t noticed but that’s telling,” said a third.

Reports in France suggested that Al-Khelaifi and Mbappe’s relationship deteriorated when the 25-year-old had announced internally that he would be leaving the club.
