Kylian Mbappe decides to stay at PSG, extends contracts until 2025

Kylian Mbappe has put a stop to all the speculation. PSG has decided to keep the Frenchman. The announcement follows months of conjecture and speculation about the player joining Real Madrid. 

The darkest fears of Real Madrid have been verified. Next season, Kylian Mbappe will not play for Real Madrid. With little over a month left on his contract, the 23-year-old has opted to extend his stay at PSG. The announcement occurred just before the season’s last game against Metz.  

Kylian Mbappe had linked with a move away from PSG for months and he had put off signing a new deal at the French giants. Real Madrid were always the most likely candidates and even Liverpool was mentioned as a possible destination for Mbappe. Furthermore, PSG’s failure once again to win the Champions League led to many believing the Frenchman would depart.

In fact, earlier in the week, there was talk of Madrid reaching an agreement with the French striker and that there was no way back. However, Mbappe’s mother, Fayza Lamari, revealed in an interview with ‘Kora Plus’ that her son had “almost identical” agreements with both PSG and Real Madrid and that it was just for Kylian to decide. In the end, PSG won the battle thanks to a multi-million-euro renewal bonus and salary. 

Real Madrid was left bewildered by Mbappe’s sudden change of heart and according to journalist Guillem Balague, president Florentino Perez informed the squad that Mbappe would not be joining the club after the goalless draw with Real Betis on Friday night. 

After watching how Erling Haaland signed with Man City earlier in May, this is the second time Madrid has missed out on a major acquisition. After losing out on Kylian Mbappe, who has 168 goals in 216 PSG matches, Real Madrid will have to wait and see who they will sign this summer. 

Madrid can also conclude the season on a high note if they overcome Liverpool in the Champions League final on May 28th in Paris. They would win their third trophy of the season if they won there, following the La Liga title and the Spanish Super Cup.
