There was so much drama surrounding Kylian Mbappe during his last summer transfer that at one point it looked like his PSG chapter was over. The French forward's relationship with the club authorities was at the bottom because he did not agree to renew the contract with PSG.

On the one hand, the club is desperate to sell Mbappe, on the other hand, he is determined to stay until the end of the term. Because, if Mbappe leaves after completing the term, PSG will not get a single penny from the transfer. And if he leaves the club at the end of the term, he will get the entire loyalty bonus of 8 million euros. Mbappe was sent to the 'bomb squad' from PSG's main squad at one point in the scandal.

There were also rumors that Mbappe had a rift with coach Luis Enrique amid the complications. Mbappe also threatened to lose Enrique's original squad with the 'bomb squad'.

Mbappe was returned to PSG's main squad after the two sides finally met and reached an agreement. But over the past few days, whispers have continued again, Mbappé's relationship with coach Enrique has deteriorated. However, the 53-year-old Spanish coach dismissed such news.

Messi will face defending champions PSG tonight in the French league tie. PSG is on the way to retain the league title with a maximum of 37 points. Mace is at number 14 with 16 points. PSG are undisputed favorites as the game takes place at home ground Parc des Princes. Therefore, rather than discussing the plan and opponents of this match, the journalists questioned Enrique more about the rumors of a bad relationship with Mbappe.

In response, Enrique said, 'Our relationship has always been good. We are not yet a couple, but close. In fact, he himself doesn't want to pair up with me (laughs). I don't know why you (journalists) keep asking this question again and again. I have a good relationship with most of the players in the team. The relationship with Killian is also close from the beginning. He is someone who always smiles and jokes. I am happy not only for Killian, but for everyone in the team. Even with those who get a little less chance to play.

Today is Mbappe's 25th birthday. On the occasion of the special day, Enrique wished him the best for the future, saying, "He is still young, my son's age." I wish him more success individually and as a team. His career will be full of success. I hope to stay at PSG and help him develop his career. He is a very big player. How is he as a person, now is an opportunity to know that too. It is really great to have a player like him in the team.

Mbappe is in great form this season. He scored 19 goals in 21 matches in all competitions, scored 2 with his teammates. You will definitely want to do something special on your 25th birthday night.
