Paris Saint-Germain star Kylian Mbappé broke his silence and commented on his future. The 25-year-old can sign a pre-contract now as his current deal with the capital club expires in June.
The Parisians beating Toulouse FC 2-0 for Trophée des Champions on Wednesday night at the Parc des Princes became the side story when the Frenchman addressed the elephant in the room when speaking to the media.
After the 2018 FIFA World Cup winner spoke about his future, it didn’t take long for the Spanish media to analyze his remarks. El Chiringuito’s Juanfe Sanz stated that he believes that PSG is at a point where it doesn’t matter to them whether Mbappé stays or goes.
“I believe that Mbappé is closer to Real Madrid than it may seem after what he has done,” Sanz said on Wednesday’s program. “So, I repeat, from the moment I inquired about this issue, that’s when I saw PSG most convinced that they don’t care as much if Mbappé leaves. That’s what I feel…
“Mbappé already has a rough idea of PSG’s intentions regarding his future. In other words, if he wants to renew, it could happen this morning. Therefore, at the moment, it doesn’t seem like he’s going to renew.”

The spotlight is on Real Madrid, which has already made an offer to secure the services of the 2018 FIFA World Cup winner. According to reports, the Spanish side is expected to set a deadline for their proposal.
However, the La Liga team is not without competition. According to Le Parisien, Liverpool is actively competing to secure the signature of the 2022 FIFA World Cup runner-up. Moreover, should the transfer come to fruition, he would be positioned as the long-term successor to Mohamed Salah.
