Kylian Mbappe Opens Contract Talks over Staying at PSG
Kylian Mbappe’s PSG future continues to be uncertain though he has entered contract discussions with the French club amid transfer interest from Real Madrid
Kylian Mbappe has entered the final 12 months of his deal at the Parc des Princes and was linked with a summer move away. However, the forward’s mother has confirmed that talks over a contract extension with PSG are underway saying things are “going well”.
Mbappe’s parents, Fayza Lamari (his mother), Wilfrid Mbappe (his father), and lawyer Delphine Verheyden are responsible for his future moves.
Despite that, their French star, now into his fifth season at the Paris club, remains undecided on his future.
The striker has scored 136 goals since moving to the French giants from Monaco following a breakout campaign in 2017.
The Champion’s League has continued to elude PSG and Mbappe, but he remains committed regardless of his next move.
His mother said: “We are in talks with PSG right now and it’s going well. I even spoke to Leonardo last night [Monday]. But will we reach an outcome?
“One thing is sure: he will give his all right up until the end to win the Champions League.”
“Kylian needs to feel satisfied. If he’s unhappy, he is capable of telling you: ‘I’m stopping my career. And he says that to us often, actually [smiles].
“With Kylian, it can all change from one day to the next.”
Suppose Mbappe extends his contract at PSG, the club can now boast a frontline featuring Lionel Messi, Kylian Mbappe, and Neymar. And, as claimed by the club’s chief Nasser Al-Khelaifi, after Messi’s signing, there is no way Mbappe could have any reason to leave.
“I think we have the most competitive team”. Said Al-Khelaifi.
“Now there is no choice for Kylian but to stay here in Paris. I think everybody knows Kylian’s future, people from Paris and the players. He is a really competitive player. He wasn’t to win trophies. He wanted a competitive team and I think we have got the most competitive in the world.”
“So there is no excuse for him now. He can’t do anything else but stay”.
