The Kylian Mbappé saga has been a rollercoaster ride over the last two years. From many believing that the Frenchman would leave for Real Madrid to signing an extension with Paris Saint-Germain to not triggering his option, it’s a wild saga.
Mbappé’s contract expires next summer, and all eyes are on what the 2018 FIFA World Cup winner intends to do. A Real Madrid club chief stated the Spanish side’s confidence in signing him as a free agent.
However, what’s PSG’s stance in this entire saga? El Chiringuito‘s Marcos Benito reported on Tuesday that the Ligue 1 giants hope that Mbappé will decide on his future when they qualify for the round of 16 in the UEFA Champions League.

If this is the French side’s expectation, then these back-to-back games against AC Milan will be crucial. PSG is currently in second place in Group F with three points after two matchdays.
PSG will need at least four points when facing the Serie A side, with the first game being on Oct. 25 at the Parc des Princes. Going on a deep run in the Champions League might convince the winger to stay long-term and see out this project with new manager Luis Enrique.
