“Excluding Mbappe 1st team is also being considered” .. PSG, the club’s strong policy is still unchanged

French professional football league 1 Paris Saint-Germain (PSG) is more likely to sit on the bench throughout the season with Kylian Mbafe (25), who insists on staying with the team without contract extension.

France’s ‘Le Parisien’ said on the 6th (Korean time) that while Mbappe, who was recently excluded from the Asian tour, remains silent about his future, the PSG leadership can exclude Mbappe from the first team. 

Mbappe is a player who has symbolized PSG as well as Ligue 1. Mbappe, who led PSG’s frontline for six seasons from 2017, scored a total of more than 30 goals in each season except for his first season. In doing so, he was named Ligue 1 Player of the Year four times and top scorer five times. 

However, in June, Mbappe shocked PSG by declaring, “I will not activate my one-year extension option clause, and at the same time I will remain with the team in the 2023-2024 season.” 

Mbappe signed a 2+1 year contract last summer. His refusal to invoke the one-year extension option clause means June 2024 is the point at which his contract with PSG expires. In this case, PSG had to sell Mbappe this summer, but he said he would stay with the team, so he said he would leave as a free agent (FA). 

Then, PSG president Nasser Al-Khelaifi nailed it, saying, “There is no FA transfer for Mbafe.” It is PSG that invested 180 million euros (about 259.2 billion won) when recruiting Mbafe. In other words, he announced the policy that one of the best strikers in the world cannot be sent away for nothing. 

PSG made this commitment even clearer by excluding Mbappe from the list of pre-season East Asian tours leading to Japan and Korea. Director Luis Campos was concerned, but it is known that Al-Khelaifi carried it through. 

PSG is preparing for the Ligue 1 opening game against Lorient, which will be held at the Parc des Princes on the 13th. Mbafe, who is on vacation after individual training, plans to join team training from the 7th. 

European transfer expert Fabricio Romano also said on his social media, “PSG’s policy toward Mbappe has not changed.” “All solutions have been sought. A contract with a sale clause in the summer of 2024 was also rejected. I am convinced that only Real Madrid wants it.”

However, it is unknown whether Mbappe will be able to play. Given the current situation, it’s highly unlikely. ‘Le Parisien’ emphasized, “In the opening game, new players, including coach Luis Enrique, will be supported by fans, but you will not see Mbappe.” 

In addition, the media said, “Nothing has been decided, but the club’s position has not changed.” “The situation between PSG and Mbappe will now be difficult to reconcile,” suggesting that PSG will take a hard line against Mbappe. 먹튀검증

PSG intends to keep Mbappe on the bench throughout the season if he insists on staying without a contract extension. Or, it can be excluded from the 1st team power and not put on the call list. 

PSG is raising expectations by recruiting a large number of new faces, including Lee Kang-in, Marco Asensio, Milan Shkriniar, Manuel Ugarte, Cher Ndore, Luca Hernandez, and Arnau Tenas. However, concerns about the disposal of Mbappe are expected to continue until the end of the transfer market.
