Kylian Mbappe will theoretically continue his career at PSG for three seasons. The French international formalized his extension at the Capital club until 2025 during the last day of Ligue 1 against FC Metz (5-0) this Saturday, where he also scored a hat-trick.

However, there were not many people to predict such an outcome a few days back. Especially in Real Madrid, which had contractually agreed with the player with the declared confidence of winning the bet. But the 2018 world champion just had all the elements at his disposal, wanting to strike a deal with PSG before making the final choice.

Kylian Mbappe told the leaders of the two clubs this Thursday, and especially to the leaders of PSG, of his decision, after the new lease signing in Paris on Friday showed positive results. The secret was well kept until Saturday afternoon before the formality at the Parc des Princes. This new contract gives Mbappe a solid sporting guarantee in addition to the largest salary of the workforce.

Changes are now expected in the wake of this expansion, which appears to be only the first stage of the Paris rocket. This Saturday evening, President Nasser al-Khalafi has already informed sporting director Leonardo about his expulsion. To replace him, Portuguese Luis Campos, a longtime friend of the Mbappe family, is now the favourite.

Mauricio Pochettino, under contract until June 2023, will also be relieved of his duties in the coming days. Parallel to this departure, the workforce will also be reviewed in depth. “Paris is my home,” launches Mbappé in the Parc des Princes this Saturday. With 39 goals and 26 assists this season, Kylian Mbappe has held his position as the boss on the pitch in any case. The next few years at PSG should still be marked by the striker’s performance, very sorry for Real Madrid.
