“Randal Kolo Muani Refuses Training with Eintracht Frankfurt, Eyes Move to Paris Saint-Germain”
*France Forward Pushes for Transfer as PSG Reshapes Attack Post Messi and Neymar*
In a surprising turn of events, French forward Randal Kolo Muani has declined to participate in training with Eintracht Frankfurt, making his intentions clear—he is eager for a transfer. The German Bundesliga club officially confirmed this on Wednesday.
Recent reports in the French media suggest that Kolo Muani is already in Paris, hinting at a possible move to Paris Saint-Germain. This comes as PSG is in the process of restructuring its attack, following the departure of Lionel Messi to Inter Miami and the sale of Neymar to Al Hilal in the cash-rich Saudi Pro League. Kolo Muani publicly expressed his desire to join PSG in an interview with Sky in Germany just a day earlier.
In an official statement, Eintracht Frankfurt stated, “Striker Randal Kolo Muani today informed the Eintracht Frankfurt sporting management that he will not take part in today’s final training session ahead of the UEFA Europa Conference League qualification playoff second leg against Levski Sofia on Thursday. He stated his intention to move clubs before the end of the transfer window on Friday night as the reason for his absence.”
Kolo Muani, known for his speed and skill, made a significant impact last season after joining Eintracht from Nantes. He scored an impressive 23 goals in 46 matches overall and began the current campaign with three goals in just four games.
Markus Krösche, a board member at Eintracht, expressed his disappointment at Kolo Muani’s decision to skip training. He said, “This isn’t the Randal we’ve got to know, and we know his real character. He’s being bombarded at the moment, and the result is this reaction, which is wrong, as we’ve made clear to him and his entourage along with all the ramifications. We’ll contest the match against Levski Sofia without him. For us, it’s clear: this behavior has no influence on transfer business. What matters now is the important game against Sofia.”
Should this transfer materialize, the 24-year-old forward—who has scored one goal in nine games for France—could potentially reunite with his French teammates Kylian Mbappé and Ousmane Dembélé at PSG.
Kolo Muani made headlines with his impact as a substitute during the World Cup final last December when France drew 3-3 with Argentina before losing in a penalty shootout. He notably converted his penalty in the shootout.
Kolo Muani’s decision to skip training in pursuit of a move to a larger and wealthier club is not an isolated incident in the world of football. Wolverhampton midfielder Matheus Nunes is also refusing to train with his team as he seeks a move to the Premier League champion, Manchester City.
