Although Mbappe scored in a friendly match against Le Harve, this player was still removed by PSG from the list of Asian tours. That move shows PSG’s tough message to the French striker.
PSG gave Mbappe a deadline to decide on his future on July 31. The French player must give answers about whether to extend his contract with PSG for another year. If he continues to resist, Mbappe risks being imprisoned on the bench for the whole next season.
However, despite PSG’s harsh treatment, Mbappe still showed a professional attitude. This player regularly comes to practice with PSG’s youth team in Paris, while the whole team has gone to Asia to play friendly matches.
After rehearsals, the star born in 1998 always takes time to sign autographs and interact with fans. It is a move that makes Mbappe highly appreciated in the context of conflicts with PSG.
When asked about the current situation, Mbappe emphasized: “I’m fine. Everything is fine”. Le Parisien newspaper asserted that even if he was treated badly, the French striker still maintains his opinion that he will stay at PSG for another year, before leaving on a free transfer next summer.
At the prospect of Mbappe being imprisoned for the whole season on the bench, the President of the Players Association (FIFPRO), Jonas Baer-Hoffmann voiced his objection. He said that PSG did not honor the contract with Mbappe.
Mr. Jonas Baer-Hoffmann said: “Mbappe has every right to be respected and play the rest of his contract. After that, he is free to decide which club to play for. This is part of the game. Bosman law and the player’s freedom in the last year of the contract.
Many players are often treated badly when expressing their desire to leave within the last year of their contract. Now, the player respects his commitment to the club but is still pressured for it.”
Recently, the French press has reported that Al Hilal club is willing to pay 1 billion euros in exchange for a year of Mbappe’s service. However, the French striker is not interested in going to Saudi Arabia to play football.
