PSG Plan To Use French President Macron To Convince Kylian Mbappe To Stay At The Club

Paris Saint-Germain are pulling out all the stops to convince Kylian Mbappe to stay at the club as they plan to use French president Emmanuel Macron.


Mbappe has been the subject of intense transfer speculation, with reports linking him with a sensational move to Real Madrid.

The Spanish club wanted the superstar forward this summer, but PSG refused the sale of the 22-year-old.

Though it appears Mbappe could strike a pre-agreement with Real in January before completing a mega free transfer in the summer of 2022 when his current contract expires.

But the French giants are hellbent on keeping their prized asset in the capital, with their big renewal plans revealed.

According to Marca, French president Emmanuel Macron has sent Mbappe personal messages to persuade him to reject Real's advances.

Mirror's Colin Millar adds: "It has not been ruled out that this dialogue between Macron and Mbappe will continue, particularly with the striker set to star for Les Bleus in next year's World Cup in Qatar - a nation with influence at the top of PSG."

PSG's other plan of attack to keep Mbappe in Paris includes supporting and promoting his 'Inspired by KM' project, which supports disadvantaged children in the city.

Mbappe's dream move to Real appeared to be on the cards during the summer transfer window until talks broke down between both sides.

Speaking amid the speculation, Mauricio Pochettino said: "He is our player. But you know the business, it's full of rumours.

"Our president and our director are very clear. He is here with us and we are happy with him. He is an important player, and it is a gift to have him with us."
