While PSG had announced a new three-year contract for Kylian Mbappé when formalizing his extension, the French striker would have finally resigned for two seasons, plus an option. Something to change the situation, since the Mbappé soap opera could resume next summer if PSG does not want to take the risk of seeing him go free in 2024. In the eyes of Daniel Riolo, the Parisian team has already fulfilled its objective, whatever the future of the Bondynois.

On May 21, Nasser Al-Khelaifi proudly announced the extension of Kylian Mbappé on the lawn of the Parc des Princes. At his side, the French international wore a jersey of the PSG flocked with the number “2025”. There was then little doubt to have concerning the duration of the new contract of Kylian Mbappe, while the capital club formalized the extension of its star for three seasons. However, this is not as clear as advertised. According The Team, Mbappe would have actually signed a new two-season lease. A third year does feature in his contract as an option, but this can only be activated if the player accepts it.

“It was not even a PSG affair, but a state affair for Qatar. They succeeded”

Thus, the file Mbappe could return to the leaders’ table in the summer of 2023, when the latter will have to convince their player to exercise this option, or else sell him at the risk of seeing him go free the following year. An outcome that might not frighten Qatar so much anymore, according to Daniel Rioloexplaining that the staff of the PSG has already achieved its goal by retaining Kylian Mbappe for this new season. “ What is important in this contract, and what was important in the basis of all the discussions, is that Nasser Al-Khelaïfi had said one day: “he will not leave free at the end of this contract”. For a case that he had to consider to be credibility, communication, he was in absolute fixation. Mbappé will not leave in the summer of 2022, and they have done everything, with promises, contracts, controlling everything. Macron even intervened, the idea was “I’m going to show you that Mbappé will stay with us and he won’t go to Real Madrid.” It was not even a PSG affair, but a state affair for Qatar. They succeeded “, confides the journalist of RMC in the podcast AfterParis.

“What they wanted was for the Mbappé of 2022/2023 to play at PSG”

That he signs for three years, two years, one year, with clauses below, promises… Anyway, in their minds, they won. (…) What they wanted was for the Mbappé of 2022/2023 to play at PSG, and to give the feeling that he was even going to stay beyond that. Honestly, I don’t have the feeling that we made the discovery of the century with this contract. “, continues Daniel Riolo. the PSG will he then be willing to open the door to a transfer of Kylian Mbappe next summer, after the World Cup which will take place in Qatar, or to let him go free in 2024 without complaining? The future will tell…
