Kylian Mbappe remains at PSG, which is what club president Nasser Al-Khelaifi wants. He said this yesterday Tuesday. Khelaifi claims that PSGE is the 'best club' for Mbappe.
Mbappe's contract with PSG will expire next June. There is no obstacle for him to join a new club next season. The PSG president told French radio RMC, "I will not hide my desire for Kylian to stay at PSG." Kylian is a world player and Paris is the best club for him.
In 2011, this Qatari billionaire came to the ownership of PSG. Since then, PSG have spent a lot of money in the transfer market to win the Champions League. But after coming under the ownership of Khelaifi, the Paris club has only managed to play in the final (2019-20) of this best club competition in Europe.
Meanwhile, various rumors are being heard in the transfer market involving Real Madrid with Mbappe. The 14-time European champion Spanish club's interest in Mbappe is nothing new.
"He is getting the best training center in the world here (PSG)," Khelaifi said. There is also the best coach in the world (Luis Enrique). Every year he is guaranteed to play in the Champions League. We have at least reached the last sixteen, quarter finals, even semi finals and finals. In other words, we are next to the big clubs.
A source involved in Mbappe's contract negotiations told AFP last week that the French star had given up a bonus of "several million" euros to leave PSG. Mbappe renewed his contract with PSG in 2022. His annual salary in the club is 72 million euros. He received 15 million euros as a signing bonus.
French newspaper La Parisien also reported that the contract renewal also included a loyalty bonus for Mbappe, which rose from 70 million euros in the first year to 90 million euros in the third year.
However, whether Mbappe will stay at PSG or not, Nasser Al Khelaifi also claimed that 'the question is not about money'. The PSG president requested, "We have many important matches ahead of us. I beg you, don't fuss about Kylian, leave him alone.' Mbappe has scored 24 goals in all competitions for PSG this season.
