Mbappe has labelled his club Paris St Germain as ‘divisive’, amid a contract standoff between the player and the French champions.
Relationship between PSG and Mbappe broke down last month after the French forward said he would not renew his contract which expires at the end of next season, meaning he can leave for free in June 2024.
If he runs down his contract PSG would be unable to recoup any of the 180 million euros ($197 million) they spent to sign him.
PSG President Nasser Al-Khelaifi has said they will not let him go for free.
Mbappe, Ligue 1’s top scorer in the last five seasons, has been linked with a move to Real Madrid.
“I think that playing for PSG doesn’t help much because it’s a divisive team, a divisive club,” he said in an interview with France Football magazine. He did not elaborate.
PSG have won nine of the last 11 Ligue 1 titles but Mbappe’s frustration lies with their performances in the Champions League — a trophy the Parisian club have never won despite all their investment in the squad.
PSG went out in the last 16 this year when they were beaten by Bayern Munich, failing to score in both legs. Mbappe was injured for the first leg and said they were “helpless” in the second.
