“Of course it gets tiring. Especially when you play for a club in your country and you give everything for your national team.”
An unlikely move to Liverpool could be on the cards for Kylian Mbappe after the 22-year-old said he was “tiring” from the constant pressure to perform for both club and country.
There are a number of reports suggesting that Paris Saint-Germain are beginning to grow “frustrated” with the player as a new deal still hasn’t been finalised.
Mbappe had been widely expected to sign a new contract – with his current deal set to expire at the end of next season – but no progress has been made.
The French international also appeared far from happy with life in Paris after a recent interview he gave while away on international duty.
“Of course it gets tiring,” Mbappe told the media when asked about his future.
“Especially when you play for a club in your country and you give everything for your national team. After a while it gets tiring.
“It’s different for players who play abroad and only come back here for the national team. I’m there all the time, they speak about me a lot more.
“It’s a different context [to other players], but I knew it would be like that when I signed for Paris. We’ll see.”
According to French outlet Le Parisien, PSG chiefs Leonardo and Nasser Al-Khelaifi are getting fed up with the situation.
The pair are considering lowering Mbappe’s asking price this summer in order to sell him now as opposed to losing him on a free transfer next summer.
Liverpool have been strongly linked with a move for the young striker in the past but talks had died down.
However, if the asking fee is reduced then the Premier League champions could be tempted into making a bid.
Mbappe’s PSG side take on European champions Bayern Munich in the first leg of their quarter-final on Wednesday in what is a repeat of last season’s final.
