Kylian Mbappe is currently both the most popular player on the market and a player that every club would love to have on its roster. For several years, Mbappe has been mentioned as a potential reinforcement for Real Madrid, but it seems that this could happen this year.
However, PSG is optimistic and is still convinced that Mbappe will stay. Mbappe is currently considering options. But most believe it will end in Madrid. Paris Saint-germain sporting director Leonardo has revealed that Kylian Mbappe is still considering whether to pursue a career at PSG or move to Real Madrid.
These are difficult decisions for a young player. "In Madrid, they’ve been convinced for three years that Kylian Mbappe would end up at Real Madrid," Leonardo told Sky Sport Italia after PSG claimed their 10th Ligue 1 title on Saturday evening.
"Maybe they’re a little too sure about that?" He talked for Canal+: "Honestly, the discussions were always there.... Kylian, he talks with us, and we have constant communication. I think he is still in a reflection. I think there is a possibility that he stays.
He can also leave. But he is thinking."
Pochettino on Mbappe
Mauricio Pochettino still doesn't know what will happen, and he is aware of how important this decision will be for PSG. Kylian Mbappe has been PSG's most important player for several seasons.
That is why they would have big problems if Kylian decides to change the environment. However, Pochettino does not want to bother with rumors, and believes that the decision will be made at the end of the season. "As a coach, the situation does not bother me," said Pochettino ahead of Saturday's title clincher, a 1-1 draw with Lens.
"You have to understand it. This does not only happen in Paris, but also in other clubs. This is not the first, nor the last time that such situations arise. We have to adapt. Selfishly, I would like to keep Kylian with me, of course.
"I would like to take him on vacation, take him home, keep him all the time. The club would like him to be able to stay here for a long time. "It's a negotiation. This decision is always related to different parties. It may be taken once the objective of the title is reached, once the season is over." There is little left, and they could finally hear the news they have been waiting for in Madrid. We have to wait though, maybe Mbappe decides to stay.
