Paris Saint-Germain director Leonardo has insisted that Kylian Mbappé could still sign a new contract with the club and stay put in France, despite continued links to Real Madrid. PSG has been trying to hold talks over the possibility of extending his contract with them.
The Spanish heavyweights made several attempts to sign the 23-year-old forward last summer but were rebuffed by PSG. However, with the striker set to become a free agent, they stand a great chance of securing his services.
Leonardo added a separate interview with Canal+. There is no special meeting in Doha. Kylian talks with us, and we have constant communication. I think he is still in a reflection.
Mbappé, for his part, has mainly been coy about his future. After PSG’s Ligue 1 triumph last weekend, the 23-year-old said: “Nothing has changed – so there’s nothing to say right now.” However, there are reports that the French international has increased his financial demands to sign for Real Madrid in the summer. So, if Mbappé ends up at the Santiago Bernabéu next season or continues plying his trade for PSG, it remains to be seen.
