Paris SG superstar striker Kylian Mbappé has decided to extend to Paris SG, where his current contract expires on June 30, after hesitating for a long time with Real Madrid who were courting him, several French and Spanish media announced on Saturday. L’Equipe, Marca, Le Parisien-Aujourd’hui en France and RMC are talking about a three-year contract extension that has yet to be signed, and an official announcement in the evening. Mbappé’s entourage, contacted in the middle of the afternoon, did not wish to react to press information, pending a communication from PSG.
This series of several months ends well for PSG, which retains its best player, with whom it dreams of winning its first Champions League. His decision falls a few hours before the kick-off of the last match of the season, against Metz at the Parc des Princes (9 p.m.), where the club has planned a party to celebrate its tenth league title.
A financial golden bridge
According to Marca and RMC, he announced his wish to stay on as Real Madrid president Florentino Pérez was once again turned down after trying to land the centre-forward last year. “I hope he will stay here for many years,” his coach Mauricio Pochettino said on Friday.
By committing to Paris for the long term, the native of Bondy (23) could beat Edinson Cavani’s record (200 goals) and thus become the top scorer in the history of the club. PSG, owned by the Qatari fund QSI, would have made a financial golden bridge to retain Mbappé, who would become the new headliner of his project, ahead of Neymar and Lionel Messi.
