Among Leonardo‘s priority files at the moment at PSG, we note of course the extension of Kylian Mbappé‘s contract. But the French striker would still wait for solid sporting guarantees before making his decision.
Presented at a press conference on Tuesday by PSG, Mauricio Pochettino made a first point on his use of Kylian Mbappé: “Concerning Kylian, great players can play in several positions. Maybe he’ll be in one place at kick-off and then move. The most important thing is how he behaves in the spaces, how he uses his qualities. We’ll have to put him in the best position for him to use his potential and to be decisive,” said the Argentinean coach on the sporting aspect. But what about Mbappé‘s contract extension, whose future at PSG still seems uncertain?
Mbappé is still asking for sports guarantees
“Le Parisien” reports on this subject in its daily columns, and indicates that this Kylian Mbappé dossier remains, like Neymar, the top priority of the moment for Leonardo. But the sports director of PSG knows it: the French international wants to evolve in a very competitive team in the years to come, and he would claim solid sports guarantees before considering extending his stay at the Parc des Princes. However, PSG has a serious reason for hope since, with the current health crisis, it seems unlikely that a foreign big name such as Real Madrid, Liverpool or FC Barcelona will be able to draw an offer of 200M€ for Kylian Mbappé next summer.
Does mbappe go to Real?
Jewel of the PSG crown, Kylian Mbappé is nevertheless announced with insistence at Real Madrid. According to the Madrid press, the 21 year old French winger should even join the Casa Blanca at the end of this season which will be synonymous with the end of his contract with PSG, while he still refuses to extend his contract with Real Madrid.
The PSG ready to let Mbappé go for free in 2022?
Basically, PSG would absolutely like to take advantage of the talents of its young 21-year-old striker for at least two more seasons, even if it means not making any money when he leaves the club. Maybe by then, PSG will have changed its mind or even that the player will have decided to extend his contract in Paris. As he said recently, Mbappé is currently fully focused on PSG’s objectives and this is not the time to talk about his next mercato.
