Crawley Town snub Kylian Mbappe with star set to stay at PSG

A Kylian Mbappe transfer has been ruled out by one of the linked clubs on Friday.

Mbappe’s future has taken centre stage in the 2023 summer transfer window thanks to his contract status.

The Frenchman seemed eager to run down his deal and leave on a free transfer next summer.

But as PSG do not want to lose him for nothing and the player seemingly does not want to sign a new contract, the French champions were trying to sell him in this window.

However, Mbappe has so far refused to move and in turn, he was banned from first-team training, with the BBC reporting on August 3 that Kylian Mbappe would not train with the Paris St-Germain first-team squad when they stepped up preparations on Monday for the start of the Ligue 1 season.

But as 101 covered recently, Mbappe is to be reintegrated into the Paris Saint Germain first team after ‘positive talks’ with the French giants, an official statement confirmed:

“Following very constructive, positive talks between PSG and Kylian Mbappé before game vs Lorient, the player has been reinstated into first team training squad this morning”, the statement explained.

Now, on Friday afternoon, League Two side Crawley Town have ruled out a move for the World Cup winner.

Taking to Twitter in response to Mbappe’s links to the club, their official account tweeted: “Not needed. Sorry, Kylian.”

Mbappe is no doubt heartbroken at this news.
