More than a month after the announcement of his extension to Paris-Saint-Germain, he returned, in English, to his choice to stay in France and tells the backstage of his decision. One person in particular intervened during his reflection: Emmanuel Macron. “He wanted me to stay”explained the former Monegasque, thus confirming the words of the President himself in the regional press at the beginning of June.
» He told me : « I don’t want you to leave now, you are so important to the country. Everyone will be happy if you stay, everyone loves you here and you have time before you leave. You can stay a little longer « . Of course when the President tells you that, it counts but as I said before, it was my decisionhe assured. I never imagined talking about my future, the future of my career with the President. »
« You’ve never really been there, but it feels like your home »
If the head of state was not decisive in his choice, the Bondynois insisted that the money had not been either. “Wherever I go, I will have money. I’m that kind of player wherever I go. ». As for the rumors claiming that his extension was conditioned by a possible opinion on the choice of the coach or his teammates, Mbappé denied: “It’s not my job. And I don’t want to do it because I’m not good at it. »
Now under contract with PSG until 2025, Kylian Mbappé does not close the door to a departure for Real in the future. « You never know what’s going to happenhe blurted out. I played a week with Madrid when I was 14. I came and it was amazing. I never really played there but I have this feeling of having a history with them. You’ve never really been there, but it feels like your home. »
