The Kylian Mbappé transfer saga will hit overdrive in a few weeks when the calendar turns to 2024. All eyes will be on whether Real Madrid can secure the signing before the January window closes.
With Mbappé, the 24-year-old has turned down the Spanish club to remain with Paris Saint-Germain. Now, the question many will ask is why the 2018 FIFA World Cup winner insists on staying in the French capital.
Le Parisien journalist Laurent Perrin revealed two key reasons why the winger has stayed at PSG and spurned Los Blancos.
“Why is Mbappé stubbornly sticking to PSG? I think there are two answers,” Perrin wrote (h/t Le10Sport). “1. The financial proposal linked to its extension in 2022 was impossible to refuse, given its amount. 2. Many doubt it, but Mbappé is really attached to PSG. He showed it last summer.”
Furthermore, L’Équipe journalist Loic Tanzi spoke with talkSPORT and revealed the one aspect that will keep the Frenchman with his hometown club. Mbappé wants to bring the UEFA Champions League to his hometown, but does he want to gamble with his prime years?
It will be interesting to see what happens. Nonetheless, buckle up because these rumors will come in hot and plenty.
