PSG convinced Kylian Mbappé to stay with prospect of changes at the club


« Back

L’Équipe report this morning that Paris Saint-Germain put forward two arguments to convince Kylian Mbappé to stay at the club and renew his contract until 2025.

Firstly, an overhaul in the club’s upper management, which was being considered since the Champions League defeat to Real Madrid, is underway and is set to take effect in the coming days.

This notably includes the dismissal of sporting director Leonardo, but in a wider sense covers the way the club is run and the guiding principles of the club’s project, which is often seen as leaning too much towards the marketing side of things.

The club also insisted on the forward’s responsibility towards French football. This included the opportunity to lead his hometown club to their first Champions League and helping to grow Ligue 1 around the world.

Last night’s announcement before the 5-0 win over Metz was the dénouement of a year-long transfer saga which kept the footballing world on the edge of their seats. With Mbappé’s renewal secured, the atmosphere at the Parc des Princes instantly improved as the club’s ultras ended their months-long boycott and celebrated their team’s 10th league title and their star man’s decision to stay.
