KYLIAN MBAPPE reportedly demanded to quit Paris Saint-Germain after the club failed to pay part of his staggering £1.2million-a-week wages.
L’Equipe claims Mbappe, 23, was left fuming after part of his pay for September failed to arrive in his bank account.

The France star was first said to be “surprised” by PSG’s actions.
But Mbappe soon became annoyed when he still hadn’t received his full salary by October 11.
And the following day reports emerged claiming Mbappe wanted to quit PSG after feeling “betrayed” due to a number of broken promises.
L’Equipe adds the financial matter has since been resolved.
But serious doubts now remain over Mbappe’s future in the French capital just six months after signing a lucrative new contract with reported wages of £1.2m-a-week.
In the wake of his explosive demands to leave PSG last month, further reports claim the Ligue 1 champs allegedly ran a smear campaign against Mbappe on social media.
The relationship between club and player is now said to be “completely broken.”
And that could open the door for a suitor to move for Mbappe in January, with Real Madrid and Liverpool keen.
Mbappe is currently in his sixth season at the Parc des Princes, and has an excellent return of 190 goals in 237 games.
He has won four titles in that time.
And Mbappe is now looking to successfully defend France’s World Cup trophy in Qatar.
One man who feels Mbappe should have left PSG last summer is Zlatan Ibrahimovic.
The AC Milan ace said: “He (Mbappe) made the right choice for Paris not for himself.
“Because he put himself in a situation where he is more important than the club. And the club gave him the keys for that.
“But you are never bigger than a club. But when a child becomes strong, he can easily earn money.”
