Kylian Mbappé is more than just a superstar player for Paris Saint-Germain; he’s a symbol for the country of France. As a result, it seems having the 24-year-old play in Ligue 1 is taken with great pride.
Nonetheless, Mbappé’s future at PSG remains uncertain after the 2018 FIFA World Cup winner decided not to trigger the option to extend his contract until 2025. Therefore the French star will become a free agent next summer.
So it is no surprise that the forward’s future in Paris has reached the president of France, Emmanuel Macron.
“Do you know if Kylian is left? I don’t have a scoop, but I’ll try to push for,” Macron said (h/t Paris Fans).
It appears the capital club doesn’t want to lose Mbappé on a free transfer next summer. Furthermore, an entire season of speculation regarding his future isn’t ideal either, so PSG is willing to sell now and secure a significant sum to continue their rebuilding of the squad.
Lionel Messi will officially leave on June 30 when his contract expires and Neymar Jr.’s future remains uncertain. This 2023-24 season was supposed to be a rebuild around Mbappé, but PSG is willing to go full-blown rebuild without their star player.
