Kylian Mbappé confirmed he told Paris Saint-Germain he wanted to leave the club in July in an interview released Monday by French broadcaster RMC.
Mbappé was subject to reported bids from Real Madrid approaching 200 million euros ($230 million) in August as he entered the last season of a five-year contract with PSG.
“I asked to leave,” the 22-year-old star said, explaining once he decided not to renew his deal “I wanted the club to have a transfer fee to have a quality replacement.”
Mbappé can sign a pre-contact agreement with another club in January and join after the season with PSG getting no fee.
He asked to go in July and hoped to leave with a good deal and respect on all sides. Reports that his request was in the last week of August made him sound like a thief, Mbappé said.
“I said, ‘If you don’t want me to go, I will stay’,” Mbappé told his interviewer, former France and PSG player Jérôme Rothen. “It’s a club that that’s given me a lot and I’ve always been happy.”
PSG rejected Madrid’s interest then signed free agent Lionel Messi in August to form a superstar attack with Mbappé and Neymar as the club pursues a first Champions League title.
Extracts of the interview were published Monday one day ahead of a longer interview being broadcast.
The second semi-final of the Nations League takes place this Thursday night, as Belgium face France at the Allianz Stadium in Turin, Italy.

Stay with us for build-up to Belgium vs France and then updates from the match itself, which gets underway at 19:45 BST.
Belgium face France tonight in the semi-finals of the second season of the Uefa Nations League.
It’s the first meeting of the team since the semi-finals of the 2018 World Cup, where France edged a tight match 1-0 thanks to Samuel Umtiti’s header in St Petersburg.
Didier Deschamps’ side went on the win the World Cup for the second time but struggled in the recent European Championships, where they were eliminated in the last 16 by Switzerland on penalties.
Belgium remain the world’s top-ranked side and are aiming to win the first piece of silverware of their ‘golden generation’. Roberto Martinez’s side were beaten by eventual champions Italy at the quarter-final stage of the Euros this summer.
Amajor clash awaits in the UEFA Nations League on Thursday night, as Belgium face France at the Juventus Stadium.
The two sides last met in the semi finals of the 2018 World Cup where a Samuel Umtiti header sent Les Blues to the final, which they went on to win.
The same coaches remain on either dugout, even though both Roberto Martinez and Didier Deschamps had disappointing Euro 2020 campaigns last summer. The Belgians were eliminated by eventual winners Italy in the quarter finals while the French outfit suffered a shock exit at the hands of Switzerland in the round of 16.
With the spotlight very much on both coaches for different reasons, passage to the final of the Nations League, and eventually winning it, would alleviate some doubt that pursues them.
