PSG sporting director hopes Kylian Mbappe will sign an extension in France.
What did Leonardo say?
Leonardo joked about Real Madrid’s overconfidence in signing the French international this summer, stating they may be a little too confident they’ll land a star player. Kylian has yet to announce a final decision on his future, but it is understood that a move to La Liga is one of his top options. After winning Ligue 1 on Saturday, PSG’s sporting director was in good enough spirits to shed light on the uncertainty surrounding the French striker.
Leonardo said that in Madrid for three years they have been convinced that Mbappe will end up in Real Madrid. “Maybe they’re too sure about it?” The PSG sporting director also said that to be honest, there have always been discussions. There is no special meeting in doha. According to Leonardo, Kylian Mbappe talks to them and they keep in touch all the time. Leonardo thinks Mbappe is still in thought. Leonardo thinks there is a chance he will stay. Kylian Mbappe might be leaving too, but he’s thinking.
Kylian talks about his future
The player was asked almost every week about what will happen next for him, and he repeated similar answers every time. Mbappe says no decision has been made and he is keeping all options open. After Saturday’s 1-1 draw with Lens, Kylian Mbappe told reporters that nothing has changed – so there’s nothing to say now.
A little about Kylian Mbappe
Kylian’s decision will no doubt speak of a summer after another campaign in which he established himself as one of the most exciting players in the world. Even in Paris Saint-Germain’s ultimately unsuccessful Champions League run, the Frenchman scored six goals and provided four assists as his teammates struggled for consistency. Kylian Mbappe is a rare talent – both Paris Saint-Germain and Real Madrid know he could be the difference in how the next five to 10 years unfold for them.
