PSG sensation Kylian Mbappe is allegedly demanding that 14 players, including manager Mauricio Pochettino and fellow striker Neymar, leave the French club this summer in a mass exodus.

The 23-year-old recently pledged his future to the club by rejecting Real Madrid to sign a new three-year contract with the French giants for £650,000 a week.

The Frenchman is thought to have been handed additional influence behind the scenes as part of the expensive arrangement, and he might be prepared to start pulling the strings in the transfer window.

According to reports, the World Cup champion wants a wholesale exodus of talent, including coaching staff and players, with as many as 14 people’s careers on the line.

The star forward’s list is rumored to include Neymar and his manager, Mauricio Pochettino.

Mauro Icardi, Julian Draxler, Ander Herrera, Idrissa Gueye, Leandro Paredes, and Thilo Kehrer are among the players Mbappe is believed to want to get-go of.

Danilo Pereira, Layvin Kurzawa, Pablo Sarabia, Juan Bernat, Colin Dagba, and Sergio Rico all said to be in his crosshairs.

Despite being under contract with the French club until the end of next season, the manager’s future has been questioned recently.

Despite leading PSG to the Ligue 1 title, their poor performance in Europe, which saw them eliminated in the last 16 by Real Madrid, has prompted speculation that the former Tottenham manager might be removed.

Before the club announced Erik ten Hag as the next permanent manager, the Argentine was connected to the Manchester United post.

Pochettino, on the other hand, has stated that he intends to stay at Tottenham for the remaining year of his contract, claiming that he is’motivated’ at the club.

Meanwhile, after signing the French giants for £198 million in 2017, Neymar remains the most expensive footballer of all time, although his standing at the club is thought to be waning.

His relationship with Mbappe has deteriorated to the point where the club and president Nasser Al-Khelaifi are willing to let him go, according to L’Equipe.

Newcastle United have been linked with a bid for Neymar and are likely one of the few clubs that can afford him, but the Brazilian is said to have no desire to come to the North East.

Manchester City, Manchester United, Liverpool, Real Madrid, and Bayern Munich, on the other hand, are not interested in signing the 30-year-old.
