The future of Kylian Mbappe is one of the most coveted in European football. His contract with Paris Saint-Germain expires at the end of the season and Real Madrid are the main candidates to sign him.
However, the weeks go by and the striker still hasn’t decided what he is going to do after July, which gives hope to the French team that he will end up renewing his contract.
To all this we must add the French striker’s latest words, after equalling Zlatan Ibrahimovic as the second highest goalscorer in the history of Paris Saint-Germain.
“I’m just Cavani away from being the top scorer in PSG history. We’ll see what happens. Being PSG’s top scorer is something you can’t ignore,” he told the media outlets after the clash.
Mbappe’s words after beating Saint-Etienne have been taken as a nod towards a possible renewal of Mbappe by Paris Saint-Germain, who are still hoping to convince him.
All this while at Real Madrid they are relaxed about the French striker. They know that it is only a matter of time, as long as the Champions League play-offs last, before they get their hands on the striker.
Nobody, except Mbappe, knows what will become of his future. On 9th March, the situation of one of the most coveted players on the planet could finally be unblocked.
It is clear to no one in Paris that the 44 goals that separate him from the Uruguayan, who played for PSG between 2013 and 2020, cannot be achieved in the remainder of the campaign, so opening the door to overtaking Cavani is tantamount to considering moving on.
In an environment where everyone thinks Mbappe is already set for Madrid, the slightest hope of a change of plans is greeted with enthusiasm.
Last summer, when he revealed his intention to move to Madrid, the player advanced as justification the feeling that in France he had already completed his objectives. All the domestic titles had already been achieved and winning the Champions League can also be achieved in Madrid.
