Mbappe, snatched from Monaco by PSG in 2017, has been courted by Real Madrid for months. Until recently, the fast and technically adept international seemed to prefer a new adventure in Spain.
He refused to negotiate with PSG for months, but yesterday his mother, who partly manages his business, confirmed that a contract was ready in both Paris and Madrid pending signature. “It’s up to him now.”
The respected L’Equipe now knows that Mbappé chooses to stay. The Spanish newspaper Marca also reports this news. However, a contract, probably until 2025, has not yet been signed.
It remains to be seen whether there will be another plot twist. There would be an official communication later tonight.
This would be good news for PSG. It is counting on its best player to fulfill its dream of a first Champions League trophy. That has failed every time in recent years. This season, PSG collided with… Real Madrid, which completely straightened out a lopsided situation in the 1/8th finals.
Tonight PSG celebrates its 10th league title with the last game of the season at home against Metz.
