Kylian Mbappe, after 7 years with PSG, bids farewell to the club and the city that saw him grow, ending his tenure with several years of greatness, participating in the conquest of several domestic championships and even reaching a UEFA Champions League final for the first time in its history.

After all the rumors at the beginning and halfway through the season, Mbappe confirmed that his destination will not be PSG and he greatly appreciates all the coaches he was led by and even his sporting directors such as Leonardo and currently Luis Campos.

But did Mbappe forget to mention someone?

In his farewell video, he never mentioned PSG President Nasser Al Khelaifi, who always emphasized Mbappe's work at the club and practically offered him the keys to the club in exchange for continuing with the Parisian club. However, Mbappe showed no affection towards the Qatari, and it is rumored that this relationship has been strained for several years.

The newspaper Le Parisien confirms that Al Khelaifi feels insulted and offended by Mbappé's ingratitude towards the PSG president. The Frenchman didn't even inform the club about his farewell video. The club was shocked and surprised by Mbappe's behavior, and they only found out about the farewell video when he posted it, like everyone else in the football world.

This act raises several doubts about what happened and the truth about how the relationship between PSG and Mbappe has been handled, but all of this has come to an end with the confirmation of Mbappe's departure, who has a practically fixed destination in Madrid.

PSG denies alleged rift between Kylian and Al Khelaifi

Paris Saint-Germain has come out to refute rumors surrounding the relationship between Nasser and Mbappe:

"It is disappointing to see more false news circulating tonight. There has been no dispute whatsoever. The president and Kylian have met regularly before matches to finalize end-of-season departure agreements. Each meeting has been constructive and respectful, even before last night's match."
