The soap opera surrounding Kylian Mbappe’s future is entering its final episodes, with there being nothing closed between Real Madrid or Paris Saint-Germain, however the French club are continuing to pressure him to renew, with his mother travelling to Doha, Qatar.
PSG are optimistic they can tie Mbappe down to a new deal, and the reality is that this visit from his mother could be potentially key in closing on a renewal agreement.
PSG want to have French forward in their squad for at least the 2022/23 season, which coincides with the Qatar World Cup, the crowning moment of Qatar’s footballing adventure.
One possibility that is on the table could see Mbappe agree to a two-year extension with PSG, so long as there is a promise that the club will then facilitate his sale should he decide to leave the club at the end of the first season.
Mbappe’s desire is to play for Real Madrid
PSG’s offer is an extraordinary one on all levels and that is making the 23-year-old doubt his next move, although his desire has always been to play for Real Madrid.
After a deal fell through during last summer, Los Blancos have remained optimistic about signing Mbappe on a Bosman deal, with that seeming to be exactly what the player wanted to.
Los Blancos’ offer would make Mbappe the highest-paid player in the history of the Spanish club, although the pressure PSG are placing upon him is sizable.
