French Football Pundit Explains Why a Departure of Kylian Mbappé Would Benefit PSG

The future of Kylian Mbappé remains an ongoing discussion as his contract expires in June. The 23-year-old has yet to decide where he’ll play next season; however, a French football pundit believes that Mbappé departing would be good for the club. 

During a segment on L’Equipe du Soir (via Canal Supporters), Grégory Schneider stated that the France international leaving would allow the Ligue 1 side to rebuild its squad. 

Schneider stated that seeing Mbappé leave would allow the capital club to build a team and not build a squad for a particular player. He cited the previous UEFA Champions League winners of building teams such as Chelsea last year. 

“I think that the departure of Mbappé will force them to rebuild themselves and to ask themselves these questions,” Schneider said. “Which teams are going far in the Champions League? These are collective teams like Chelsea or Manchester City. These are not teams that are built around one player. These are teams that are built to win.”

“I find that the fact that Mbappé is so strong and efficient has allowed them to leave all these problems under the rug. It will force them to face reality, to possibly see football as a collective sport, and to define what really wins the Champions League.”

Should the France international depart, L’Equipe has already reported that PSG would go all-in on Borussia Dortmund striker Erling Haaland, who’s likely leaving the German club this summer. 

Nonetheless, with Les Parisiens linked to former Real Madrid manager Zinedine Zidane, Mbappé’s future could be influenced by what occurs there.
