It seems that Kylian Mbappe will no longer have to doubt his future in the 2023-24 season.

Britain’s Sky Sports said on the 24th, “Mbappe is in negotiations with Paris Saint-Germain (PSG) to renew its contract. Mbappe is scheduled to play in French Ligue 1 this season. Even if the contract expires next summer, he will not leave for free. Mbappe currently has two options: renewing his contract for one year and extending it to 2025 or signing a new contract altogether,” the report said.

Although the transfer market is still about a week away, Mbappe is expected to play as a PSG player in the 2023-24 season. As Mbappe’s stay in PSG is almost confirmed, it is expected to be a great help for coach Luis Enrique.

PSG have made a huge change in their offense this summer. For now, his contract with Lionel Messi has expired at the end of the 2022-23 season. As Messi left, a new player was needed for the right wing forward position. He also needed a player to aggressively inspire creativity.

Mbappe was the player who made PSG excited after Messi left. Ahead of last season, Mbappe renewed his contract with PSG. The contract period announced at this time was three years, but it was actually a two-plus-one-year contract.

Mbappe was the subject of the one-year extension clause. Since midway through the 2022-23 season, PSG has been trying to persuade Mbappe to invoke a one-year extension. Mbappe was also positive. However, in mid-June, Mbappe unilaterally notified the club that he would not invoke the one-year extension clause.

However, Neymar was the player who actually went out. Neymar asked the club for a transfer as soon as he returned to France after a pre-season tour between Korea and Japan. At the time, multiple media outlets, including Britain’s Sky Sports, said on the 8th, “Neymar informed PSG that he wanted to leave this summer.” Neymar said, “As PSG has formed a new team, he is not considered a key player under Enrique’s system.” 안전놀이터

PSG had originally planned to sell Neymar. When the player publicly expressed his intention to transfer, he actively began looking for a club to take Neymar. Neymar, once the world’s best player who succeeded Messi-Cristiano Ronaldo, surprisingly chose to go to Saudi Arabia.

Fabrice Hawkins, a reporter for France’s “RMC Sports” who is fluent in PSG internal information, said on the 14th, “Neymar agreed to move to Al Hilal.” The transfer fee is 90 million euros (about 129.2 billion won) and a bonus. I signed a two-year contract. Neymar’s six-year career at PSG ended,” he reported.

As news of Neymar leaving PSG began to emerge, the relationship between Mbappe and PSG improved. Neymar and Mbappe have been rumored to be at odds since the beginning of the 2022-23 season. The true nature of the discord has not been revealed, but it is true that it did not seem as close as it used to be.

Mbappe’s relationship with PSG seemed more serious than Mbappe-Neymar’s, and seemed no longer recoverable, but suddenly it got better. In the opening match of French League 1 in the 2023-24 season between PSG and FC Lorient, Mbappe changed his position to talk to PSG again, and PSG also returned Mbappe to first team training.

Mbappe returned to the second round of the league 1 against Toulouse last time. In the early hours of the second half, he was replaced by Lee Kang-in and started playing as a PSG player again, and scored a penalty kick himself. Mbappe proved to the world that he was the team’s ace in a short time. Since then, the relationship between Mbappe and PSG has improved incredibly, and it is estimated that negotiations on renewing the contract have continued.

Rumors of a transfer to Real Madrid, which continued to follow Mbappe and PSG, ended this summer. Real coach Carlo Ancelotti said on the 24th, “There is no 100% (additional recruitment). “The door to the squad is closed,” he said firmly, adding that there will be no new recruitment.

Mbappe’s future is likely to fluctuate once again depending on how Mbappe and PSG will renew their contracts and Real’s moves after the 2023-24 season. PSG have shown confidence in Mbappe and have been sub-captain this season.

It is still unknown how long Mbappe will stay in PSG, but it is expected to remain at least until the 2023-24 season for Lee Kang-in’s teammate. The combination of Mbappe, who has the world’s best spatial penetration and speed, and Lee Kang-in, one of the best players in PSG, is highly anticipated.

Originally, PSG classified Lee Kang-in as a side winger resource, but is attempting to solve the creativity problem caused by Messi-Neymar’s departure through Lee Kang-in. What is regrettable is that Lee Kang-in collapsed due to an injury ahead of a new change.

PSG said on the club’s website on the 22nd, “Lee Kang-in suffered an injury to his left thigh quadriceps.” Lee Kang-in will be treated until the end of the A match period,” he officially announced.

According to French media, Lee Kang-in was injured during the second round of the French Ligue 1 in the 2023-24 season against Toulouse on the 20th. It will take more time to recover from the injury than expected. It is estimated that it will take up to three to four weeks to see Lee Kang-in at the stadium again.
