Kylian Mbappe could be at Real Madrid next season, but Paris Saint-Germain sporting director Leonardo jokingly warned that they may feel overconfident.
PSG won their 10th Ligue 1 title in a row against Lens on Saturday, as fans marched on the pitch in the 75th minute to protest against the club’s management.
The match ended in a 1-1 draw with a 10-man Lens equal to Corentin Jean in the 88th minute at the Parc des Princes, with the final whistle meeting momentum.
Mbappe has scored 51 goals (33 goals, 18 assists) in 42 games in all PSG competitions this season, more than doubling Lionel Messi (22 goals – nine goals, 13 assists). and about three times more than Neymar. (18 – 11 goals, seven assistants).
Only Robert Lewandowski (53 – 48 goals, five assistants) and Karim Benzema (52 – 39 goals, 13 assistants) were the most successful in all competitions in the top five European leagues.
Mbappe could leave PSG on a free transfer after the end of his contract in June, but understandably the club is determined to commit to reviving the rotating Madrid.
The World Cup-winning striker insists his mind is not yet clear, and Leonardo reminded Madrid that they still have to reward Mbappe away from the club, despite their long-term ambitions.
“In Madrid, they were convinced three years ago that Kylian would end up at Real. Maybe they are sure of that,” Leonardo told Sky Sport Italia.
“If Kylian says he hasn’t made a decision, I believe him. We have a great relationship. He examines everything to make the best decision.
“He knows we need him here and he is the protection of everyone. Today, he is the best player in the world. He will make his decision with us – the relationship is very good.”
He added to Canal + and said: “Kylian is still thinking. There is a possibility he will stay. As with or without him next season, everything changes.”
