Achraf Hakimi was looking forward to forming a solid friendship with Kylian Mbappe, shortly after arriving at PSG last summer. At the end of the contract at the end of the season, the striker still has not indicated what his future will be. During an interview with Telefoot, the right-hander sent a message to his partner asking him to stay in Paris.
Whether on or off the pitch, Kylian Mbappe and Achraf Hakimi get along perfectly. But this season could be the first and last time the two players will be playing together at PSG. For good reason, the striker will reach the end of his contract in a few months and an extension is currently far from being entered.

on the microphone telefoot, Hakimi was asked about the possibility of the Frenchman leaving the club. An opportunity for the right side to send a message to their partner: “It’s a pleasure to have him by your side, I just want him to be here.” If this wish is necessarily shared by the supporters of Paris, the Moroccan puts no pressure on his friend and is ready to use him for the idea of leaving: “I wish him the best of luck, to decide that.” It is up to him to do whatever he wants. I will support him.”
Meanwhile, both the players will be keen to win the classic against Marseille (8:45 pm) this Sunday.
“It’s easy to play with such a player”
Bought at a high price from Inter Milan, Hakimi is expected to stay in France for several years. If it took him time to adapt, the 23-year-old was able to count on Mbappe to speed up his integration: “I speak a little French with Kylian, thanks to him, I speak better and better.”
Not stingy with praise, the Moroccan said as best he thinks of the Frenchman: “It’s easier to play with the kind of player who can decide the fate of a match.” The author of 20 league goals, it’s a Mbappe in great shape who will present himself this Sunday in what could be his last classic.
A meeting to allow Parisians to reconcile with supporters, as declared by Hakimi: “It is difficult that supporters do not support us. To win is to make them support again.”
