Mbappe’s future appeared to be uncertain, with his existing deal set to expire after the current season. Amidst considerable anticipation that the striker would move to Real Madrid as a free agent this summer, Mauricio Pochettino has announced that Mbappe will continue at Paris Saint-Germain. The Argentine has also announced that he’ll be staying at Parc des Princes too. “As of today, I’m 100% staying – and same for Kylian Mbappe.” per Fabrizio Romano.
Following PSG’s Ligue 1 triumph last week, rumours of discontent among the Argentine coach and the club’s administration circulated, including both Pochettino and sporting director Leonardo’s positions allegedly at risk.
Nevertheless, Pochettino, who has been associated with a reunion at Tottenham this summer, stated during a press conference that he and sensation attacker Mbappe, whose term expires after June, will continue at the Parc des Princes following season.
Many fans would be taken aback by the news. Pochettino was widely predicted to quit PSG after the year; the team conquered Ligue 1 beneath his management but fell short in Europe. And, above everything, the Champions League is the contest for which PSG is assessed. Considering their immense riches, they can conquer Ligue 1 every season beyond doubt.
Mbappe’s scenario is much furthermore significant. His agreement with PSG runs out at the end of the year, and all signals suggested that he would leave for Spain and the Santiago Bernabeu whenever it happened. Mbappe’s contract renewal will also have to be publicly disclosed before this becomes a reality, but Pochettino’s remarks will have caused Madridistas cause for alarm.
The Parisian-born attacker has become a national idol in France after playing a significant role in France’s World Cup triumph in Russia in 2018. His goal versus Croatia in the 2018 World Cup final made him the first youngster to strike in a final after Pele in 1958. Mbappe has netted 165 goals in 213 games for PSG since arriving from Monaco in 2017.
