At the start, Nasser al Khelaifi put an end to all the stories about the possible departure of Kyllian Mbappe from Paris. In an interview with the respected L'Equipe, he told all interested parties, especially Real Madrid, who was the loudest from the beginning, that he had no intention of selling his best player, nor would he allow him to leave PSG as a free agent.
The problem at the moment for the Parisians is the fact that Mbappe's contract expires in June 2022, but that obviously does not worry the rich leader. "I will be clear, Mbappe will stay in Paris. We will never sell him, nor will we allow him to go as a free agent.
He has everything he needs in Paris," Al Khelaifi said. Real is the biggest club in Europe, but there is hardly anyone more ambitious than Paris Saint-Germain. "Where can he go? Which club in terms of ambition can compete with PSG today? All I can say is that things are going well and I hope we will reach an agreement on a new contract."
"This is Paris, this is his country. He has a mission, not only to play football but also to promote the League. This is his country and capital," added the first man of PSG.
Mbappe arrived in Paris in July 2018 from Monaco for an astronomical compensation of 145,000,000 euros.
In four seasons, he played 171 matches in the Saints jersey and scored 132 goals in all competitions. It has been rumored for a long time that Mbappe could leave PSG and go to Real Madrid. There was even talk for a while about going to Manchester City, but it seems that nothing will happen.
Mbappe is, most will agree, the best young player in the world and such players have always been the first targets of Real Madrid. Most players do not refuse such an invitation that comes only once, but Mbappe will seem to do it.
The question is how long he will be able to resist, given that he is aware of what it means to play at the Santiago Bernabeu and how much better chance he has of winning the Champions League. Perez seems to have intended to create new Galacticos, but this time it will not be easy to create given that clubs are finding it increasingly difficult to sell their best players, and are looking for more and more money. Still, we will wait for the summer and see if Perez will achieve his goal
