Paris Saint-Germain have been looking all season for an option to convince Kylian Mbappe to renew his contract. The Frenchman is released in June and will leave for free to any other team, a destination that seemed to be Real Madrid, recent Champions League finalists.
However, the possibility of seeing the French star in the white shirt seems to be vanishing. ‘Le Parisien’, a media outlet that is very close to the team now coached by Mauricio Pochettino, brought to light on Thursday a piece of information that echoed throughout the Old Continent.
The aforementioned source revealed that Mbappe is planning to extend his current contract with the Parisians, as he and his entourage have accepted the new proposal that has been put on the table by the Parc des Princes.
It was also reported that Real Madrid were unable to match the conditions of the French side, who have offered the striker a 100 million euro bonus plus a salary of 50 million euros per year.
Shortly after this information from ‘Le Parisien’ came to light, Mbappe’s mother announced the following: “There’s NO agreement in principle with Paris Saint-Germain or any other club. Discussions around Kylian’s future continue in great serenity to allow him to make the best choice, in the respect of all the parties”
It was the same media outlet that assured a few days ago that no decision had yet been made, while rumours of his departure, especially due to a photo of the player’s supposed move, were growing as the days went by.
So far, the player has not commented on the matter. Whenever he has been questioned about his continuity this season, the world champion with France has always been neutral in his answers, without making his future clear.
The club have been in favour of retaining Mbappe, who they see as the cornerstone of their project, especially considering that Messi has been far from his best and that Neymar’s performance and attitudes have been in question.
The ‘Donatello’ has only three games left to officially end the season, against Troyes, Montpellier and Metz. The last one will be on 21th May at the Parc des Princes…
