PSG The Champions League run of Paris Saint-Germain could be a major influence on Kylian Mbappe’s future.
When he declined to sign a contract, the World Cup champion appeared to be leaving the Parc des Princes.
The 24-year-old has become the key player in a brand new PSG team. According to reports, talks are underway about extending his contract.
We take a closer look at Mbappe and his future before the Ligue 1 giants travel to Newcastle tonight in the Champions League.
PSG Speech by the President
Nasser Al-Khelaifi, PSG’s president, recently said that Mbappe will still be with the club in 2019.
He stated: “Kylian is PSG’s player.” He is a fan of the club. He is a great player. He is the best player in the entire world.
We are happy to welcome him, and will continue to do so.
Mbappe’s contract expires next summer.
PSG made a bid for the France International as recent as July. They reportedly accepted Al-Hilal’s offer of PS257million.
Mbappe insisted that he only wanted to finish his contract and refused to meet the Saudi Arabians.
There have now been reports that both the player and the club have softened their respective positions. They have also been in talks about a possible contract extension.
PSG must match Mbappe’s on-field goals and keep him satisfied off the field to convince him to stay.
This season’s Ligue 1 Champions have a brand new team after losing big players such as Lionel Messi and Neymar. They also lost Julian Draxler Marco Verratti, Sergio Ramos, among others.
Some of the new talents include French players such as Lucas Hernandez and Ousmane Debele. Bradley Barcola, Randal Kolo, Muani, Bradley Barcola, are also among them.
The PSG Project has been a curious one since Qatar Sports Investments got involved. It seems to be focusing on foreign signings, despite the fact that there are so many talented French players.
Mbappe is the major exception. The future of Mbappe at PSG will be determined by the influx in compatriots.
The French contingent now includes Ethan Mbappe (16), a 16-year old midfielder, who was already selected to the bench in this season.
Mbappe may not have listened to the charm offensive, but a Champions League win could change his mind.
Mbappe was part of PSG’s team in the 2020 final, which they lost to Bayern Munich.
They are trying again. Although they had a great start, winning 2-0 in the first group match against Borussia Dortmund. Their domestic form is still a problem under Luis Enrique.
PS.G has only been victorious in three out of seven matches. On Saturday they drew 0-0 with Clermont, a match that Mbappe returned from an injury which threatened to keep him away from Newcastle.
They are on the same journey as the French giants, and they now have the chance to bring a superstar player to St James’ Park who is the type of star that the Magpies would like to be one day.
Mbappe could be on the market in the future if PSG fails to deliver in Europe.
