The soap opera surrounding Kylian Mbappe’s future enters its final stages, with nothing closed between Real Madrid or Paris Saint-Germain, yet the French club continues to press him to renew, with his mother heading to Doha, Qatar.
PSG are hopeful that they will bind Mbappe to a new deal, and the fact is that his mother’s visit could be key to closing the renewal agreement.
PSG want to have a French striker in their squad for at least the 2022/23 season, which coincides with the Qatar World Cup, the moment of the Qatar Football Cup crown.
Another possibility on the table could see Mbappe agree on a two-year extension with PSG, as long as there is a promise that the club will continue to sell him if he decides to leave the club at the end of the first season.
PSG’s gift is rare at all levels and that makes the 23-year-old doubt his next move, even though his dream has always been to play for Real Madrid.
After the deal was over last summer, Los Blancos are still hoping to sign Mbappe on a Bosman deal, which seems to be exactly what the player wanted.
Los Blancos’ gift will make Mbappe the highest-paid player in the history of the Spanish club, despite the pressure PSG puts on him.
