PSG star Kylian Mbappe wants to see 14 names leave the French side this summer – including manager Mauricio Pochettino and fellow Neymar.

PSG star Kylian Mbappe reportedly wants to see 14 names leave the French side this summer – including manager Mauricio Pochettino and fellow forward Neymar.

The 23-year-old recently committed his future to the club by snubbing Real Madrid to sign a new three-year deal worth £650,000-a-week with PSG.

As part of the lucrative deal it is believed that the Frenchman has been given more power behind the scenes and he could be set to start pulling the strings in the transfer window.

The World Cup winner wants a mass clearout at the club with 14 names on his list to be axed, according to Mundo Deportivo.

Neymar and manager Mauricio Pochettino are said to headline the star forward’s list, while Mbappe is also said to want to axe key members of the squad such as Mauro Icardi, Julian Draxler, Ander Herrera, Idrissa Gueye, Leandro Paredes and Thilo Kehrer.

Meanwhile, Danilo Pereira, Layvin Kurzawa, Pablo Sarabia, Juan Bernat, Colin Dagba and Sergio Rico are also thought to be in his firing line.

The boss’s future has faced intense scrutiny recently, despite being under contract with the French outfit until the end of next season.

Despite leading PSG to the Ligue 1 title, their disappointing Champions League campaign, which saw them knocked out by Real Madrid in the last 16, has led to talk that the former Tottenham boss could be replaced.

The Argentine had also been linked to the Manchester United job before the club confirmed Erik ten Hag as the new permanent manager.

However, Pochettino recently insisted he wants to see out the final year of his contract insisting he is ‘motivated’ at the club.

Speaking to Spanish radio show ‘El Partidazo de COPE’, the 50-year-old said: ‘Before I said [that I want to stay] 100 percent here.

‘Today I say 100 percent here [too]. I have one more year left on my contract. The challenges are there and it motivates any coach.

‘Of course I want to continue, 100 percent. PSG are a club with ambition. The big disappointment is the Champions League [elimination] because of the desire of the people.’

Meanwhile, Neymar is still the most expensive player of all time after joining the French giants for £198m in 2017.
