The future of Kylian Mbappé will be told first and foremost by media outlets like Le Parisien, who have no doubts about what is happening behind the scenes at PSG regarding their star player. The problems faced by the French club are giving a significant boost to Real Madrid.
2024 is the date set by all parties involved to put an end to a soap opera that has been shaping the lives of both Real Madrid and PSG for almost 6 years. ‘Le Parisien’ announces last-minute issues surrounding the renewal of Kylian Mbappé by the Parisian club. Florentino Pérez takes note and crosses his fingers.
These are weeks where each party involved is starting to think about a January 1st when the player will be asked to make weighty decisions. Both Qatar and Real Madrid are eagerly awaiting a prompt response from Mbappé, who remained silent during the summer and has not yet spoken about his future, which will see him become a free agent in 2024.
But ‘Le Parisien’ announces more than significant developments that could play in favor of the Spanish club. Nasser Al-Khelaifi and Luis Campos have been more cautious than ever in their approach to Kylian, with no talks held so far regarding his contract renewal. Neither with his inner circle, nor with Fayza Lamari, who once again will be the key figure to convince.
Specifically, the media outlet closest to Qatar’s project in the French capital points out that there have been no approaches made to Mbappé’s entourage, and PSG is also unaware of whether the player ultimately wishes to extend his employment contract. Doha still does not know Kylian’s decision and believes that the player himself is also unsure, just two months away from having to announce his desires.
For Real Madrid, the interpretation of this information is clear: every day that passes without Mbappé renewing his contract is another day where the Spanish club gains ground as his destination for the 2024/2025 season. There is complete immobility in a city like Paris, where nobody is in contact with Kylian’s inner circle and where nobody really knows if the player will stay at Parc des Princes.
