The 23-year-old French international signed for PSG from Monaco in 2017. Mbappe has grown to be the face of the Parisian club and one of the best players in the world. He has an incredible 21 goals and 14 assists this season, scoring in both Champions League last-16 legs against Real Madrid even though PSG suffered a humiliating exit.
Mbappe has appeared four times in the top 10 of Ballon d’Or voting since 2017, current contract at Parc des Princes is due to expire on June 30, and many European elite clubs are battling to land the French international. Reports from multiple sources suggest Real Madrid is leading the race to sign Mbappe on a free transfer.
The president of the French Football Association claimed Mbappe should not leave the Parc des Princes for the Santiago Bernabeu if he would like to get his hands on the Ballon d’Or. Noel Le Graet expresses his desire for Mbappe to stay in Ligue 1 as he advised him against the move, telling Ouest-France: “I want Kylian to stay in Paris.
“For French football, it’s better to have one of the best players in the world, if not the best, in this league. He has more chances of winning the Ballon d’Or at PSG than if he leaves. When you change clubs, you always have to get used to a new environment. PSG are going through a poor patch, but they are still a great club.”
Is Mbappe happy at PSG?
A Twitter by the French Football Federation shows Pogba and Mbappe embraced, with the Manchester United midfielder asking “how’s it going?” and the Paris-Saint-Germain forward replaying “I’m a bit fed up”.
