Sports PSG, it is confirmed for Mbappé!
Mbappe's career-defining performance against Barcelona sets PSG star up as heir to Messi and Ronaldo
PSG's World Cup winner had suffered a poor season up to now, judged by his own standards, but he was flawless in the absence of Neymar to punish BarcaWithout the support of Neymar and Angel Di Maria, the 22-year-old single-handedly destroyed the Catalans, scoring a hat-trick as PSG established a 4-1 aggregate lead in the Champions League last 16.
Failing to be sovereign on the field, PSG could record two major successes behind the scenes. While Mauricio Pochettino's men drag their sentence in Ligue 1, with already six defeats in a row and a modest third place, the Parisian leaders can reasonably hope to fulfill the two priority objectives set by the Qatari owners: the extensions of Neymar and Kylian Mbappé , both under contract until 2022. Concerning the Brazilian, the case is heard. An agreement has indeed been reached on the basis of a new five-year lease with a salary still around 31 million euros per year, and formalization should take place quickly. Unless the Parisian leaders want to kill two birds with one stone by announcing both the extension of Neymar and that of Kylian Mbappé. Optimism is a must Because if the negotiations have not yet been concluded, it is also time for optimism in the Mbappé file. According to CBS Sports, the discussions continue and the French world champion has clearly expressed his wish to extend the adventure in the capital. However, it remains to agree on the terms of this new lease, as much over the duration, the former Monegasque not being closed to the idea of a long-term commitment on condition of not being blocked against his will, that on the salary, the top scorer in Ligue 1 discounting the same emoluments as Neymar. Requests that do not seem unaffordable for the club of the capital. This explains the optimism that is spreading around the Parisian club.
