PSG's Kylian Mbappe and Adrien Rabiot fined €180,000 for arriving late to team meeting


PSG forward Kylian Mbappe is arguably one of the brightest footballing talents in the planet - and he's still only 20 years of age.

Since his move to the French capital, along with winning the 2018 World Cup with France, Mbappe has shown all the signs he can eventually go on to become the best in the world.

The former Monaco man has even managed to overshadow Brazilian superstar Neymar this season, scoring a mighty 25 goals and assisting six in 22 Ligue 1 games.

Although, it looks as though Mbappe's actions off the pitch earlier on in the season have come back to bite him.

Back in October, the 20-year-old arrived late to a team meeting alongside team-mate Adrien Rabiot ahead of their side's league clash with Marseille.

According to AS, the two players have been fined €180,000 each after being found in breach of club conduct. The money will reportedly be sent to the club's charity, the PSG foundation.

AS also claim the striker is 'fully aware' of his poor conduct, and signed a document to acknowledge the punishment.

Meanwhile, Rabiot's relationship with the club remains rocky after failing to come to terms on a new contract. Latest reports also suggest he could be on his way to Manchester United in the summer.


The 23-year-old was recently suspended by PSG for liking a video of Patrice Evra celebrating United's win over the club in the Champions League with Paul Pogba. He was also filmed attending a Paris nightclub the same night.

Mbappe has long been linked with a move to Real Madrid, as the Spanish club look to capitalise on any situation which could force him closer to his PSG departure.

Newly-reinstated Real boss Zinedine Zidane has already declared his desire to manage Mbappe. And with the club preparing a £300m squad rebuild in the summer, this probably won't be the last time you hear them both mentioned in the same sentence.
