KYLIAN MBAPPE has reportedly called Paul Pogba and his brother Mathias over claims his France international team-mate used a witch doctor to curse him.
The 23-year-old forward was mentioned by Mathias on several occasions as the Frenchman accused his brother of keeping secrets and of lying and manipulating people.
Included in Mathias’ allegations is a claim that Pogba, who left Manchester United for Juventus last month, used a witch doctor to cast a spell on his international counterpart.
The former Crewe and Wrexham footballer also tweeted directly to Mbappe – and we reported yesterday how the Paris Saint-Germain star is now monitoring the situation and could take action if necessary.
Now the French news agency RTL has claimed that Mbappe called the Pogba brothers on Thursday.
He wanted to know why he had been name checked in the scandal and to get perspective from both men to better understand the situation.
Both Mbappe and Pogba know that the potentially volatile situation ahead of November’s World Cup could prove damaging for France, which is why the forward was keen to discuss the matter.
Mathias, 32, had attacked his brother for his “lies” with a statement on social media before claiming he had “explosive information” about Mbappe.
He said: “I am going to tell you very important things about him and there will be elements and many testimonies that will confirm my words. Anything could be explosive and make a lot of noise.”
But on Sunday, Mathias tried to reach out to the superstar – suggesting he had Mbappe’s best interests in mind.
He tweeted: “Kylian, do you understand now? I have nothing negative against you, my words are for your good, everything is true and proven, the marabou is known!
“Sorry that brother, a so-called Muslim who is deep in witchcraft, it’s never good to have a hypocrite and traitor around!”
Mathias’ outburst was followed by Pogba, who claimed he was the target of a £11million blackmail scheme from his childhood friends.
Paul, 29, told authorities the group requested the money for “protection services” known to date back 13 years.
Judicial circles in Paris confirmed on Sunday that an investigation into “attempted extortion in an organized gang” had been launched.
A source told French news outlet France Info that the footballer’s “childhood friends” have been named as suspects.
The ex-Man United star claimed he was dragged to an apartment in the Paris suburb of Lagny-sur-Marne.
In response, Mathias ranted on social media, saying: “The French, English, Italian and Spanish public, in other words the whole world, as well as my brother’s fans and even more so the French team and Juventus, my brother’s team – Colleagues and his sponsors deserve to know certain things.
“If he deserves his place in the French team and the honor of playing in the World Cup. If he deserves to start at Juventus.
“If he’s a trusted person that every player deserves to have by their side.”
