If Noël Le Graët has often been complimentary towards Kylian Mbappé in the past, lately the PSG striker is no longer an ideal son-in-law for the boss of the FFF. He would rather be the capricious little boy who does as he pleases. Mbappé now wants his say on the revenue collected by the French team. The PSG player wants to re-discuss the collective image rights in selection with the federation, considering himself wronged in the use of his image by the FFF. After his boycott of the marketing operations of the Blues last March, Mbappé began discussions with its president. And, it promises to be heated.

Mbappé wants a right of inspection and dividends

Indeed, the Parisian striker has very specific requests concerning the financial and marketing aspect as revealed by the newspaper The Parisian this Friday.
