PSG Talking Podcast: Reacting to the Mbappé Bombshell

This past week, Paris Saint-Germain received news that they have been waiting months for and that is Nuno Mendes has been officially removed from the medical report. Oh, and we received an update on the Kylian Mbappé saga.

On this episode of PSG Talking, I’m joined by Ethan from PSG Fan Club Boise to discuss a hectic week in which we learned that Mbappé will reportedly leave the club this summer. We also break down two positive results for PSG against Real Sociedad and FC Nantes.

Starting chronologically, we begin with the timing of Mbappé’s communication with PSG that he will not return to the club once his contract expires. According to reports, Mbappé informed the club a day before PSG hosted Real Sociedad in the UEFA Champions League. Did the club force him to make a decision before the knockout stage, or did Mbappé want to do PSG a favor by letting them know as early as possible so they can begin planning for his departure?

Next, we dive into PSG’s 2-0 win over Real Sociedad at the Parc des Princes. It was a tale of two halves where PSG looked slow and unable to keep possession in the first half but came out in the second and scored twice to take hold of the tie. We break down Mbappé’s performance and Bradley Barcola’s goal and look ahead to the return leg and what PSG’s strategy should be.

Less than 24 hours after the win, Fabrizio Romano and several other top journalists reported that Mbappé will leave the club this summer as a free agent. We discuss who may have leaked that information to the media, the challenges Mbappé will face at Real Madrid, and who PSG may sign this summer to strengthen the squad.

The show concludes with a discussion about PSG’s 2-0 win over Nantes, including Luis Enrique’s decision to bench Mbappé to start the match.
