After yesterday's match between PSG and Reims, which ended in a rout by the Parisian club thanks to Kylian Mbappé's hat-trick, the player chose not to respond to journalists' questions about the summer off-season, during which he had disagreements with the club, and a potential move to another club.

Following PSG's league victory with Mbappé, the player sent a letter to the club's management, stating he wouldn't initiate an extension of his contract for another year, which essentially means he could leave for free next summer.

PSG's reaction was prompt; the Frenchman was excluded from the list of footballers who took part in the tour of Japan and South Korea. Additionally, he missed the first game of the season. Although the forward's future is undecided, he started the season impressively, scoring thirteen goals in the first eleven matches in Ligue 1. His hat-trick from yesterday propels him to the top of the French league's leading scorers list, with a six-goal lead over the closest follower, Akor Adams.

Mbappé has avoided interactions with the media for a long time due to the excessive rumors about his transfers. However, yesterday he granted an interview to Prime Video Sport. During the conversation, he mentioned his reluctance to speak about his transfer situation, emphasizing the already abundant presence of rumors.

"Have I come to terms with the summer? The most important thing is to play football, the rest is something you [the media] are doing quite well. I don't want to discuss it further and add fuel to the fire. I think there are already too many rumors."

Earlier today, we reported that the PSG coach remained dissatisfied with Mbappé despite the Frenchman's hat-trick in yesterday's match.
