Yesterday the newspaper The team announced that Kylian Mbappé has informed the management of PSG that he does not intend to extend his contract for the moment. Last I heard, the shadow of Nasser Al-Khelaïfi would hover behind this shattering decision.
PSG Mercato: Mbappé announced to Pochettino that he remained
In today’s edition, the daily The Parisian confirms the bomb dropped on Monday morning by The team concerning the refusal of Kylian Mbappé to extend his contract which expires in 2022 with Paris Saint-Germain. Arrived in 2017 from AS Monaco against a check for 180 million euros, the top scorer of the season in Ligue 1 wants to honor his last year of contract with the Reds and Blues. He therefore does not intend to join Real Madrid this summer as regularly announced by the Spanish press.
Still according to the same source, Mbappé personally took this decision to his coach Mauricio Pochettino June 23, on the sidelines of the Euro match between France and Portugal. The native of Bondy greatly appreciates the Argentine coach and believes that with him, PSG can win the Champions League next season. The regional media continues in its revelations on this file and underlines that several things at Paris SG disturb in particular the teammate of Neymar.
Kylian Mbappé did not appreciate Al-Khelaïfi’s statement
“I’ll be clear: Kylian is going to stay in Paris, we’re never going to sell him and he’ll never leave free. I never give details in the media about ongoing negotiations. All I can say is that it is progressing well. I hope we will find common ground. He is a fantastic boy, as a person and as an athlete (…) But if he wants to decide who to recruit or not, that is not possible (…) He has everything he needs to continue here . Where can he go? Which clubs, in terms of ambition and project, can today compete with PSG? “, declared Nasser Al-Khelaïfi in early June in an interview with the newspaper The team.
According to The Parisian, this exit of its president was not at all to the taste of Kylian Mbappé. Moreover, during a press conference in Clairefontaine, the tricolor did not fail to respond to the Qatari leader explaining that he had never asked for a player. Better, the entourage of the 2018 world champion, his two parents and his lawyer in particular, does not have an excellent relationship with the Parisian sports director. Leonardo, which also complicates negotiations. Mbappé will therefore stay in Paris and go away freely next summer. Unless PSG manages in the meantime to reverse the situation.
