The concentration of ‘les Bleus’ for the four games in June in the League of Nations is scheduled for Saturday May 28, the date by which the striker will presumably have announced his decision, so as not to overshadow the news of the world champion.
That same day, Real Madrid will play a new Champions League final in Saint-Denis and will find out if they will be able to count on a player they have been courting for years in their ranks next year.
For the Madrid sports newspaper Marca, the end is already written: “The striker and the white club closed the agreement last week.”
According to the same media outlet, Mbappé will sign “for five years” with “a multimillion-dollar termination clause.”
– Last game with PSG next Saturday? –
On Saturday, May 21, against Metz at the Parc des Princes on the last day of Ligue 1, it could be the world champion’s last game in French football.
Mbappé still aspires to a fourth consecutive title of top scorer in the French league. At the moment he leads Monegasque Wissam Ben Yedder by one goal (25-24).
PSG fans fear that he will take advantage of this occasion to announce his goodbye.
But he could also announce that he is staying: whatever his decision, all parties hope to know as soon as possible the future of the player called to dominate his sport in the next decade.
PSG has a lot to lose if Mbappé leaves, sportingly, economically – his contract ends and the club will not receive any compensation – and symbolically, because the Qatari owners would see their star change shirts before the World Cup organized in their country.
