Kylian Mbappe has become the 'master and owner' of PSG after signing a massive contract extension with the Ligue 1 champions.
So far this season, the Frenchman has been in the eye of the storm for his attitude that has been labelled "selfish".

Messi has set up Mbappe five times and Neymar three times, while the Brazilian international has assisted Mbappe three times and Messi twice. Mbappe, on the other hand, has been labelled as 'selfish' as he has not registered an assist for either of the other two superstars so far.
In the wake of this, French TV published a graphic reflecting his relationship on the pitch with Lionel Messi and Neymar Jr.
Between Ligue 1 and Champions League, PSG have played 10 games. The Parisian attacking trident is on a roll, with 27 goals between the three of them, something that has been expected of them since they came together last year with the signing of the Argentine.
'Mbappe contributes nothing to this attack,' one fan wrote on Twitter. 'I have been saying this, without Messi and Neymar, Mbappe will be useless at PSG. The stats shows this but I’m always called a hater for saying the bitter obvious truth. Mbappe is so selfish and needs to be fed for him to function well.'
How have the contributions been distributed?
Neymar Jr leads with 11 goals and 8 assists (2 to Messi and 3 to Mbappe). For his part, the Argentine has 6 goals and 8 assists (5 to Mbappe and 3 to Neymar). The Frenchman has 10 goals, but no assists so far.
Between the Argentine and the Brazilian there is complete harmony, while the Frenchman is more 'solitary' in his performances.

While it is true that Mbappe has more of a central attacking role, there is concern that he is not more involved with his teammates.
He was already in the news several weeks ago for a conversation with his teammate, Achraf Hakimi. He reproached the Moroccan for not passing him a ball, which reflects his competitiveness.
