Long coveted by Real Madrid, PSG striker Kylian Mbappé has finally chosen to extend his contract until 2025 in Paris. However, the Spanish club was still several steps ahead in this case a few months ago. But it was PSG who had the last word.

“I chose France”, assures Kylian Mbappé… Two days after the announcement of the extension of his contract in Paris, the PSG star gave a press conference on Monday at the Parc des Princes alongside its president, Nasser Al-Khelaïfi. He returned to the various elements that motivated his final decision while Real Madrid made soft eyes at the 2018 world champion. The player’s entourage, however, indicated to Europe 1 that PSG was starting from very far in this case. “Six months ago, says one of Kylian Mbappé’s representatives, Real had a 10-marathon lead. But he stopped running,” he says.

This is how the PSG would have nibbled its delay with a single man in the maneuver, President Nasser Al-Khelaïfi. “Strangely, we talked more about money with Real than with Paris”, assures another relative. Even if he will now have a higher salary than Messi, PSG would have insisted more on the sports project, the history that remained to be written with the quest for the first Champions League but also the records to be broken. A total of 20 parameters were considered and among them, France, to which Mbappé is very attached.

“With Kylian, nothing is left to chance”

The player spoke several times with President Emmanuel Macron who urged him to stay in Paris but also to win a second World Cup at the end of the year, not to mention the prospect of the Olympic Games in 2 years in Paris. . The player dreams, in fact, of the gold medal a few kilometers from his town of Bondy. Missing the meeting was out of the question and that was part of the negotiations.

It will then be time, in 2024 or 2025, to go abroad. It is even already programmed. “With Kylian nothing is left to chance”, concludes the interlocutor of Europe 1.
