What Could Keep Kylian Mbappé at PSG Amid Real Madrid Rumors? Expert Weighs In

The future of Kylian Mbappé remains uncertain as the Frenchman becomes a free agent after this 2023-24 season. Furthermore, the rumors are warming up with the January transfer window right around the corner.

While the rumors suggest that this might be the year that Real Madrid finally lands the 24-year-old, could there be a way that he rejects the Spanish club for a second time and extends with PSG?

CBS Sports report Jonathan Johnson appeared recently on the PSG Talking podcast and noted what it might take for the Ligue 1 side to hold onto their star player. 

“My feeling and the feeling that you get around Paris at this moment in time is that whatever Mbappé’s decision might be in the future, whether that’s staying with PSG, whether that’s going to Real Madrid, whether that’s going somewhere else if another club was to come in and potentially show an interest in taking him on a free transfer, a lot of it is going to depend on what happens with PSG’s Champions League run and how they fare this season,” Johnson said.

“So, get to their most consistent for the knockout phase. Assuming that everything else goes reasonably according to plan in this group stage, then I think PSG can feel that they have a good shot at convincing Mbappé to stay.”

The French giants finally put Mbappé at the center of their project after the exits of Lionel Messi and Neymar Jr. However, is this enough to convince him that the capital club is heading in the right direction? 

PSG moved off their superstars this past summer and committed to building a team rather than bringing in players because of their name recognition.
