Kylian Mbappe has been criticised by Thierry Henry amid growing rumours that the France forward wants to leave Paris Saint-Germain over his positioning as a lone forward and failed promises by the board.

Sources told ESPN on Tuesday that the 23-year-old Mbappe, who extended his contract with PSG until 2025 after looking close to joining Real Madrid during the close season, wants to leave the French champions in January.

PSG have denied Mbappe asked to leave.

"Nobody likes to be exposed to what you're not good at, you just don't like it," Henry said on CBS Sports on Tuesday.

Mbappe is being used a lone forward with Lionel Messi and Neymar on either side, while he has more freedom with France, where he lately played around Olivier Giroud.
