The PSG striker’s family is currently in the capital of Qatar. Officially for vacation, but also to talk about contract extension. A decisive step forward in this soap opera as the world champion’s contract expires on June 30 and meetings are also scheduled with Real Madrid.
This is the soap opera that has shaken the football planet in recent months. Will Kylian Mbappé extend to Paris Saint-Germain or leave the capital club free when his contract expires on June 30? In any case, things seem to be accelerating as the end of the season approaches. The player’s family is currently in Doha, Qatar. It all started with a photo posted on social networks by Kylian Mbappé’s little brother, Ethan, also a PSG player.
A question of images as the World Cup in Qatar approaches
The striker’s mother, Fayza, is also on the trip. It is she who takes care of her son’s interests first. One or two meetings were held with the Qatari staff to discuss a possible contract extension at PSG. For the moment, we are talking about an additional year, plus a second option, with the key sums never seen before: from 150 to 200 to complete this operation considered fundamental.
For Qatar, it’s also a question of images. The country will host the World Cup in November. Kylian Mbappé is, with Lionel Messi and Neymar, one of the three Parisian gondola heads of the event. To see him leave six months before would be experienced as an affront.
A decision expected before the end of June
But that doesn’t mean the player will stay in Paris next week. Meetings would be scheduled in Madrid with the leaders of Real. A third club – possibly English – would also be in the dance. The purpose of this mini-tour of the family is to present Kylian Mbappé with all the proposals, so that he can make his choice.
His decision is expected at best in the coming days, at the latest at the end of June, beginning of July.
