Gini Wijnaldum hopes Kylian Mbappe stays
Wijnaldum says he sympathizes with new teammate PSG Mbappe about leaving the Ligue 1 giants, but hopes the forward will stay.
Everyone wants Kylian Mbappe to stay
Gini is one of several star players to arrive in Paris Saint-Germain this summer, along with Donnarumma, Achraf Hakimi and Sergio Ramos, as the Parisians aim to finally claim their first Champions League title. However, Kylian Mbappe, whose contract expires next year, has yet to commit to the new terms with the French capital club, and there are speculations that a huge step could be taken this summer.
Gini Wijnaldum, who gave up his own contract in Liverpool to go free before choosing to join Paris Saint-Germain over Barcelona, says he is very keen to see Kylian Mbappe agree to the renewed terms at the club since he was among the main reasons he chose Ligue 1 ahead of La Liga. Gini Wijnaldum said that everyone wants Kylian Mbappe to stay, starting with him because he is one of the reasons that made Gini come to Paris Saint-Germain to play with players like Mbappe. Gini was already very pleased to see Neymar last.
Given his own recent contract situation at Anfield, Gini Wijnaldum does have a liking for Kylian Mbappe, potentially considering moving on to a new challenge, and that he must ultimately decide what is best for his career personally. Gini said that he was in this position too, and most of the time you watch your feelings. Wijnaldum just hopes that he will move to Paris Saint-Germain because the club is doing everything possible to make this team the best in the world.
What is the likelihood that Kylian will leave?
Kylian Mbappe joined Paris Saint-Germain from Monaco in the summer of 2017 and has since become a World Cup winner and Champions League finalist, so an astronomical application will likely be required to praise France forward from Parc des Princes. However, the longer Kylian Mbappe has settled on a new deal – which comes after Paris Saint-Germain dropped both Ligue 1 and Champions League titles last season – the more likely Paris Saint-Germain will have to cash in.
