“I am very happy to continue the adventure. I have always said that Paris is my home. I hope that I will continue to do what I love the most, play football and continue to win trophies with all of you,” he said into the microphone.

Mbappé, “the cornerstone of the project”

In the wake of the announcement of the extension of “Kyky”, sporting director Leonardo was dismissed from his post, the first movement of an off-season which promises to be eventful.
