‘I would like him to stay at PSG’ – French Football Federation Comments on the Future of Kylian Mbappé

Kylian Mbappé’s contract and whether he will extend remains a hot topic issue around football. From pundits to supporters, everyone expresses their opinion on what the 22-year-old should do next as his contract with Paris Saint-Germain expires in June 2022. 

French Football Federation President Noël Le Graët is the latest to state his thoughts on the issue. During an interview with RMC Sport, the 79-year-old wants Mbappé to remain in France with the capital club. 

“Do I want to see him stay in France? Obviously,” Le Graët said. “The proof, I would even like him to go to the Olympics, you see how demanding we are. He is a boy who is progressing so much, who is serious. Of course, I would like him to stay at PSG.”

At the moment, French football needs superstars to market as plenty of clubs have been impacted financially due to the coronavirus pandemic. On top of that, there’s the television rights debacle with Mediapro. 

It’s in everyone’s best interest for the French giants to hold onto their superstar players in Neymar Jr. and Mbappé. Also, it’s up to those in charge that these two players appear in as many Ligue 1 fixtures as possible if the capital club can reach extensions with both.
