Kylian Mbappe has reportedly made the decision to leave Paris St.-Germain (PSG). This news has created a sense of deja vu, as a similar scenario occurred in the past. However, this time it seems different. It is believed that Mbappe is not using this as a negotiating ploy or engaging in a power struggle; he is genuinely leaving PSG.
