To everyone's surprise, Real Madrid released a press release on Saturday in which Casa Blanca denies, for the first time, any discussions with PSG star Kylian Mbappé. The future of the captain of the France team has been constantly linked to the Merengues for several years. What is surprising is the timing of this press release, as the N.7's contract in the capital expires in June 2024. PSG would obviously not abandon the idea of once again extending its star striker.
PSG president Nasser Al-Khelaïfi reacted to the Madrid club's press release, on the sidelines of the Champions League match between his team and AC Milan this Tuesday evening at San Siro, in the columns of Gazzetta dello Sport.

“I haven't seen their statement, we are all focused on ourselves and our football, not on others. Kylian continues to achieve great things and maybe people take him for granted, but no one has played in two World Cup finals and even scored a hat-trick. I repeat: Kylian is the best in the world, it's great to see him at the helm of PSG and France. It has a positive effect on our young people, it helps us build our future,” said “NAK”.
Calmly, the Qatari also took the opportunity to praise the new Parisian project. “More than a revolution, it is an evolution. We aim for the top, we are always looking to improve and grow. New foundations need time, a goal, patience, perseverance. A project is built with a plan, not over a few races. And then we have a new long-term philosophy, based on the collective, and no longer on individuals. Today I enjoy watching PSG, as I think our fans do. It’s the right method, with the new training center, the best in the world, the best in the world: it’s a boost for the future.”
