The latest Kylian Mbappe contract update does not bode well for Paris Saint-Germain. According to Fabrizio Romano, cited by PSG Talk, the youngster remains unconvinced by the nine-time Ligue 1 champions.
As it stands, the Frenchman will leave as the hottest free agent on the planet in one year’s time. If that scenario does happen, expect Mbappe to be the bait to a circle of sharks in the transfer market. Every top club will have an offer on the table; a hope that they will be the ones to secure a truly generational talisman.
As for PSG, panic will be starting to creep in. They’ve just lost out on the Ligue 1 title against all odds for the first time since 2017 when they lost out to Monaco. The man at the centre of that team? Kylian Mbappe.
Kylian Mbappe Contract Update: Forward Remains Unconvinced
PSG Must Keep Hold of Forward
This summer, all of the parts have finally fallen into place for PSG. They have their star manager in Mauricio Pochettino. They have their leader in Sergio Ramos and they have another winner and man for the big occasion in Georginio Wijnaldum.
They no longer look a nearly team with just two generational stars to boast. They look a side ready to challenge for Europe’s greatest honours. And, for the first time, even the greatest of doubters would read that line somewhat convinced of its truth.
One problem has seemingly come to the fore, however, and that is Kylian Mbappe and his contract. Take from near the top of a Jenga tower and it does not fall. Take a piece from the bottom which takes far too long to dislodge, however, and the entire thing comes crashing down. Mbappe is the piece that keeps PSG together; the player that adds the needed fear factor. Take him away and PSG may fall.
Tying Kylian Mbappe down to a new contract must remain PSG’s biggest and most important goal if they want to remain on course for the top European prize.
