ARSENAL legend Thierry Henry has advised Paris Saint-Germain wantaway star Kylian Mbappe to put the team first amid amid his ongoing exit drama.

This comes amid claims suggesting Mbappe, 23, is "fed up" and wants to leave PSG as soon as possible with the relationship between him and the club being "completely broken".

The striker is said to feel "betrayed" following a series of "unfeasible" promises he says were made to him by the Parisians amid rumours suggesting he has also fallen out with team-mate Neymar.

"And I think at one point, for me I will use my own stories, I didn't like to play high and wide at Barcelona. I hated it.

"But I had to do it for the team. I didn't like after 100 caps and I don't know how many goals… I had to go and play on the left.

"I didn't hear anyone saying, 'Oh, what a nice gesture to go and play on the left'.
