Kylian Mbappe speaks out after signing new PSG contract

Kylian Mbappe contract

Kylian Mbappe discusses what convinced him to stay at PSG.

After PSG offered Kylian Mbappe a contract that shocked the world, concerns around the bizarre power he gained began to grow with La Liga even announcing that they had reported the French giants for “non-compliance with UEFA’s financial fair play.”

With money and power seeming like the obvious reasons for Mbappe to stay in France, the Frenchman revealed that there was much more to his decision than that and the past year has ended up being a big factor in his change of heart.

“Everybody knows I wanted to leave last year and I was convinced that would be the best decision at the time.

“The years pass but they are different and the context is different now. That goes in sporting terms and also personally.”

Real Madrid

Even though he maintains that Real Madrid holds a special place in his heart, Mbappe also claims that playing in his home country is a special thing that he’s not finished with just yet.

“I was free to make a decision and I know how important that is here in France. It is the country where I have grown up, I have always lived here and leaving my country wasn’t the right thing. There is a sentimental aspect to this, it is my country.

“The sporting project has changed as well. That made me want to stay here because I don’t think my story is over yet.”

Even with his new contract signed, Mbappe made sure to let Real Madrid know that there’s still a chance he’ll join them in the not too distant future.

After being asked if he had given up his dream of becoming a Galactico, Mpappe responded by saying this contract wouldn’t necessarily mean he’ll stay at PSG afterwards.

“I have made a personal decision which I feel is best for me, I am not looking too far ahead.”
