For months, the French international was sent with great insistence to the side of the real Madrid, ready to try hard to attract the one who had been presented as his dream target for years. Only here, in the home stretch of the file, the former player ofAS Monaco finally decided to return for three seasons at PSGeither until 2025 – possibly until 2024 with an optional additional year as indicated THE TEAM recently.

A real influence behind the scenes, but not total

To achieve this, the PSG an employer of large means paid on weight supports. Emmanuel Macron, Nicolas Sarkozy and many other politicians or high-ranking personalities have slipped a message to Kylian Mbappe to encourage him to stay Paris according to information disclosed by the Sunday newspaper. After signing, the winner of the World Cup 2018 became ” the cornerstone of the project Parisian in the words of Nasser Al-Khelaifichose which directly led to the ousting of Leonardo, opposed to the idea of ​​granting all favors to a single player. The keys to the truck were given to Kylian Mbappe, you might say. ” It’s something that doesn’t exist anywhere else. It was a bit like that in Barcelona with Messi, and it declined “, explains a European club leader to the JDD.

The influence of Kylian Mbappe nevertheless remains to be nuanced, he who, for example, has never aimed for the armband of Marquinhos. An intimate of the workings of the PSG rightly explains that it is impossible to have true full powers with the Qatar. In addition, few people know the details of the contract of the player tied up in Doha, and therefore the prerogatives that it entails. One thing is certain, however: the club does everything to please the player. In this perspective, the JDD quotes the coming to the club of Julian Maynard for example. Formerly at TF1one who is close to the family Mbappe was appointed head of communications for the pro team. The arrival of Louis Fields fits in the same dimension, the Portuguese being familiar with the player since monaco, where they then rubbed shoulders.

This consisted in associating it with Robert Lewandowski in a 4-4-2 according to information from the JDDwhen the PSG planned in parallel to make from Neymar. A game of musical chairs was thus ambitioned between the two clients of the agent Pini Zahavi. Problem: the Pole finally opted for the FC Barcelonawhile Bernardo Silva and Milan Skriniaralso targets of PSG, escaped the Parisian club. ” The account is not there “, Write the JDD.

Finally, still on the sporting side, Kylian Mbappe also obtained guarantees on his positioning in attack. The player only wants two zones: on the left or in the axial point. This topic caused some sparks in the days leading up to the game against Montpellier on the second day of League 1first official game of the season Kylian Mbappe. Wishing to preserve the emerging balance between Neymar and Leo Messi, Christophe Galtier wanted to position the Frenchman on the right side. The project was finally abandoned in the face of the annoyance of Kylian Mbappe and his father, very observant on sports affairs “, Write the JDD. It was during this same match against Montpellier that Kylian Mbappe sulked the whole time, before leaving in real anger afterwards due to the penaltygate affair with Neymar.
