The French striker made open-hearted declarations after arriving in Paris from Monaco as a youngster in 2017 and scoring 171 goals in 217 games for PSG.
Kylian Mbappé’s decision to reject a Real Madrid offer and commit to three more seasons with Paris Saint-Germain marks the start of a long-term redevelopment project for the French league champion. PSG has been teaching in France since a Qatari investor group bought the club in 2011. However, despite their high refuerzo spending, Europe has always been short. “Real Madrid is not a team that needs to persuade me; it’s an honor to be able to play for them, but after a difficult start to the season, we’ve gone farther together with Leo Messi and Neymar, and that’s how we want to approach our next goals.” I spoke with Messi before making my decision.
PSG’s leaders believe that Mbappé’s consistency will eventually take them to the Champions League title. Aside from the astronomical sums of money promised to the 23-year-old striker – the terms of Mbappé’s new deal are yet to be revealed – the French star has been promised big squad changes. In the following days or weeks, a new coach and sports director are expected to be named. But what matters most is the friendship he formed with Messi and Neymar: “It’s an honor to play with such great players as Neymar and Messi.” It had been a trying year. Messi has only recently come, and Neymar has been injured,” he remarked, before moving on to ngel Di Mara: “He is a legend at the club.”
“The project has changed,” Mbappé said in a press conference on Monday. “The club wants to change a lot of things in terms of sports, and I want to stay with them.” I believe my story does not end here, both on a professional and personal level.” The arrival of new players in the summer months is expected to kick off a project that will revolve on the World Cup.
