Guest of Rothen Régale this Friday on RMC, Marco Verratti mentioned the possible contract extensions of his teammates Neymar and Kylian Mbappé. Without getting too wet, the Italian ensures that the two Parisian stars are happy at PSG.
“When you play with these players it’s always easier, he smiles. You can throw a bomb at them, they’ll always control the ball well.” Three and a half years after the arrival of Neymar and Kylian Mbappé in Paris, Marco Verratti does not hide his pleasure in playing alongside the two offensive stars. Will it last? Good question.
Neymar and Mbappé are now linked to PSG until June 2022. If for the Brazilian, an extension seems on the right track, it is more vague for the French. Is Verratti trying to play a negotiator behind the scenes, to convince them to stay? “Of course, he confided this Friday evening in Rothen Régale, on RMC. It’s normal, we know that with them in the team we are stronger. I always speak with them. tell you everything, but we talk a lot. When Ney had a more difficult time, with his injuries and everything, we were really very close. Same for Kylian. “

I also think, but here I speak in a personal capacity, that to win (the Champions League) here would have a different flavor. We started a very big project to win this competition 9 or 10 years ago. I think we are getting closer and closer to the big teams. It is played a lot on details. And by dint of being close (to the title), it will eventually happen. There are many teams that reached the final, and who won the following season … “
Spent Thursday at the microphone of Top of the Foot on RMC, the sporting director Leonardo had also mentioned the Mbappé file. “We talk, we move forward, and I think that we will reach a conclusion, or at least a clear idea of the position of each one for the future, he said. (…) It is not a history of being worried or not. Mbappé, today, is under contract with the PSG, it is the only valid fact. He is under contract until June 30, 2022. There are fifteen months, all the same. The only one thing that matters is the desire to talk about an extension. (…) Today, there is no worry. “
