The winner of the 2018 World Cup was linked to a summer transfer from Paris and says there was no discussion about a new contract
Kylian Mbappe says no progress has been made in negotiating a new deal with Paris St. Germain this summer in the midst of a rumors tying it to a move.
The PSG star has been linked in 2022 by his Paris deal to move to Real Madrid and Barcelona as well as Liverpool in the Premier League.
Mbappe says he has no new updates to tell whether he is going to sign a new contract with the champions of the 1 League and that he will remain silent until discussions have advanced.
What did he say?
“For players who play internationally, this is new and only for the national team coming back here. I’m still there; they talk a lot more to me. It’s another atmosphere to other players, but I knew when I signed for Paris it would be like that. We’re going to watch.
He said: “If you are playing for a club in your country and giving anything for your national team it would be media critique fatiguing, naturally. It’s getting tiring after a bit.
Mbappe has confirmed that he thinks that his status with the League 1 champions is more public exposure than many of his foreign rivals and that he only needs to play in a team where he is settled and happy.
Mbappe said of a new deal with PSG, speaking to RTL after a qualifying 1-0 World Cup victory for Bosnia-Herzegovina:
“WHEN IT HAD ADVANCED, I’D ALREADY HAVE COME TO TALK. NATURALLY, WHEN I MAKE UP MY MIND, I SHALL SPEAK ABOUT IT.”
COULD THIS SUMMER MBAPPE ABANDON PSG?
His value only grew in the Parcdes Princes, helping the French winners gain three consecutive league 1 titles and finish in the Champions League final, while also being a foreign World Cup winner.
Credit: A €145m ($171 m / $125m) offer in 2017 from the PSG, which included €35m (€30m/$41m) in additions; Mbappe is now the second largest participant in history.
But if he refuses to sign a new deal before the summer, a battle in the European market can be ignited if PSG tries to sell their star properties in order not to run the risk of losing him free of charge in 2022.
