Le Parisien report that 21-year-old French attacker Kylian Mbappé is seeking certain guarantees in order to sign a contract extension with PSG, with his current deal expiring in June 2022.
This weekend, PSG Sporting Director Leonardo commented publicly to Canal Plus on the contract situation of the French youngster:
“We are speaking calmly. We have made a step forward in the last 10 days.”
This statement confirms the trend in recent days of reporting that Mbappé is open to listening to what PSG will offer – he is hesitating, and whilst he earns €1.9m a month gross, he is asking above all for certain sporting guarantees.
Staying at PSG is not going to hurt him financially, in terms of what Liverpool or Real Madrid could offer, because every club has been majorly impacted by COVID-19. He is also paying close attention to the club’s contract extension talks with Neymar. The outlet claims that Marco Verratti and Neymar are both trying to encourage the Frenchman to sign a new deal.
