Kylian Mbappe has denied rumours that he has ordered the departures of no fewer than 14 people involved with Paris Saint-Germain, including Neymar and manager Mauricio Pochettino.

Mbappe penned a monstrous new contract at Parc des Princes last month and there were rumours that PSG had offered him a significant say in their transfer business in an attempt to convince him to stay - something Mbappe has already denied.

While the Frenchman's opinion will likely be sought on significant issues, Mbappe laughed off claims that he would get heavily involved, insisting his job is simply to perform on the pitch.

Nevertheless, reports have continued to claim that Mbappe is ruling the roost in Paris these days, with the latest rumour suggesting that the forward had highlighted 14 names he wanted rid off this summer.

Responding to a Twitter post about the report, Mbappe simply said: "FAKE".

That being said, PSG are working on numerous deals behind the scenes, one of which involves the future of Pochettino.

Sources have confirmed to 90min that sporting director Leonardo is expected to leave the club and he could be swiftly followed by Pochettino, with PSG looking at possible replacements before making a final decision.
