Mbappe reverses course decides to stay at PSG

 

Kylian Mbappe of Paris Saint-Germain arrives to the stadium for the Ligue 1 Uber Eats match between Paris Saint Germain and ESTAC Troyes at Parc des Princes on May 08, 2022 in Paris, France.


Kylian Mbappe to Real Madrid saga has taken another twist with the forward now favorite to stay at PSG.

Mbappe’s move to the Spanish capital was seen as a foregone conclusion as he had agreed to personal terms with Madrid. 

There were some concerns in the Madrid camp with Mbappe’s mother/agent confirming that both clubs’ proposals had been accepted and it was up to the 23-year-old to decide his future.

According to reports the World Cup winner personally notified Madrid’s president Florentino Perez that he will be staying put.

Mbappe will now sign a lucrative three-year contract with the club he has been a part of for 5 years.

The deal is still to be signed but PSG are likely to make an announcement around their final game of the season with Metz on Saturday evening.

The details remain scarce but PSG were reportedly ready to offer him a £150m signing-on fee to keep him for another two seasons.

He initially joined PSG on a season-long loan from Monaco in August 2017 before helping them win four Ligue 1 titles in five seasons.

The Qatari-owned side were desperate to keep him and were prepared to offer the player a £21m net annual salary.

In what was said to be written in the stars for Madrid, Mbappe scored in each leg against Real in the Champions League last 16 this season, but it was not enough to prevent PSG from going out 3-2 on aggregate.

Mbappe leads Ligue 1’s with 25 goals and has provided a further 17 assists in 34 games as PSG won the domestic title with four games to spare.
