Kylian Mbappe at Paris Saint-Germain or Kylian Mbappe at Real Madrid. This is the big doubt that will remain until the next summer transfer window in European football.
The words of Mbappe and Florentino Perez brought him closer to Spain, but Leonardo quickly took it upon himself to push him away and leave him at the Parc des Princes.
This Wednesday, the French player's mother, Fayza Lamari, assured that she is negotiating with Paris Saint-Germain the renewal of the player, whose contract ends on 30th June 2022.
"With Kylian, everything can change overnight. If he's not happy, he can say to you: 'I'm going to quit my career'. Mbappe needs to be fully satisfied," Lamari told 'Le Parisien'.
Mbappe's mother explained that "four years ago, Real Madrid were more attractive than PSG" and that despite that they chose the French side. "This summer, Kylian decided on Real Madrid because he wanted to make his dream come true and be at the start of a new story," she explained.
"If you add Kylian to Real Madrid, plus three or four players in the next few years, this team is not the same. It wants to be at the centre of a sporting project. It needs constant challenges," he clarified.
It will be a group decision for Mbappe, that of his family: "We can want to go to Madrid without giving up where we will leave from. Besides, choosing between PSG and Real Madrid is like choosing between mum and dad.
"The situation this summer was this: his father wanted him to stay and his lawyer and I wanted him to go. That's why I say that none of us choose, it's Kylian."
