According to an editorial in Le Parisien, PSG ace Kylian Mbappe may leave Paris Saint-Germain this summer. It’s said that the Argentine has impeded Mbappe’s ambitions to lead the team.
Messi is clearly the larger star here, and his presence in the group will always cast a shadow over the Frenchman.
Mbappe has been the highlight of Mauricio Pochettino’s side this season, scoring 22 goals and providing 16 assists. He has done better than Messi and Neymar, but Benoît Lallement says Messi’s presence has broken up Mbappe’s partnership with Neymar.
For the 23-year-old, the change in the status quo may affect his prospects of winning the Ballon d’Or and other individual prizes. But given Mbappe’s current form, the Frenchman is ready to take over from Messi.
Real Madrid are ready to offer him the chance to lead their squad, and it’s hard to refuse. With just over four months left on his current term with the Parisians, the 23-year-old might finally commit his future to Los Blancos.
Mbappe is expected to make his decision after the match next month. PSG are still trying to entice him with a hefty contract that will see him earn more than Messi and Neymar.
