Mbappe Stays in Paris As PSG Declines Real’s Latest Offer

After all the hype surrounding Kylian Mbappe, the French striker will stay in PSG despite the strong interest from Real Madrid.

With the signing of Leo Messi, PSG finally have everything they need to win the UEFA Champions League and Mbappe is one of the key factors to success.

Still, PSG has not signed him on a contract extension which means that the 22-year-old will be able to leave Paris next summer without PSG getting a penny for him.

Real Madrid offered €160 million for Mbappe but PSG sport director Leonardo declined the offer calling it “not sufficient”. A new offer from Madrid never arrived.

Mbappe whose contract expires next summer will be able to sign a pre-contract with any team as early as January 2022.

The French runner-up signed Portugal’s central back Nuno Mendes from Sporting Lisbon on the last day of the summer transfer window.

With that move they capped a successful transfer window singing Messi, the Italian goalkeeper Gianluigi Donnarumma from AC Milan, Georginio Wijnaldum from Liverpool and Achraf Hakimi from Inter Milan.

Mbappe scored twice in PSG 2-0 win over Reims on Sunday. Leo Messi made his debut for the Parisians playing a total of 25 minutes.

After the match, PSG coach Mauricio Pochettino called Mbappe “one of the most important players in the world today” adding” for him to be with us is a gift”.

Speaking about Mbappe last week, Leonardo said: “If he wants to go, we are not going to hold him back, but it is on our terms.”

Leonardo also stated that the club has made two huge offers for Mbappe to sign a new deal with the team calling the Frenchman “the centre of the project” at the club but such a deal has not been reached so far.
