While his free departure to Real Madrid seemed to have taken place, Kylian Mbappé would still be in discussion with Paris Saint-Germain for a short-term extension. The information could have panicked the Spanish press. But the White House was reassuring on the file.
We could well see a big twist. While we thought the soap opera was over, Kylian Mbappé is not sure of going to Real Madrid next summer. The striker at the end of the contract at Paris Saint-Germain, as his mother indicated, has not put an end to discussions with his leaders. The TF1 Téléfoot program reveals ongoing contacts about a possible short-term extension. A trend confirmed by the British media The Telegraph, which adds that the Frenchman is not against the idea of staying an additional season.
Real remains calm
Suffice to say that this information could have panicked the Spanish press and Real Madrid supporters. But very quickly, the White House was reassuring. The Madrid club effectively avoided panic through the two local sports dailies. In the columns of Marca and As, we learn that the current leader of La Liga has changed absolutely nothing in his plans. The management remains calm and convinced that Kylian Mbappé will respect his commitment, to finally sign in favor of Real Madrid at the end of his lease next June.
Would the Merengues have spoken with the international tricolor since Friday’s publication? It’s entirely possible. Anyway, despite the arguments (including financial) available to Paris Saint-Germain, Real Madrid does not seem to fear a turnaround. The proof, coach Carlo Ancelotti has even started to prepare plans with Kylian Mbappé in his team for next season. One thing is certain, it is that one of the two clubs gives false hopes.
