Foot PSG – PSG: The promise made to Mbappé, Qatar plays big!

By extending his contract at PSG this summer, Kylian Mbappé has obtained the promise that he will be allowed to compete in the Paris Olympics in 2024.

On the sidelines of negotiations with Paris Saint-Germain for his contract extension until June 2025, Kylian Mbappé did not forget to talk about the Paris Olympic Games with Nasser Al-Khelaïfi. And for good reason, the PSG striker has made this planetary event a goal. As he has indicated several times in the past, the 2018 world champion wants to compete in the Olympic Games with France, in Paris in 2024. This should be possible since according to information from L’Equipe, this crucial point has been negotiated between PSG and the Mbappé clan during negotiations for his contract extension this summer. On the other hand, there is no written and signed clause on this subject in Kylian Mbappé’s contract with PSG.

PSG promises the Paris Olympics to Mbappé

The 23-year-old French striker had to settle for an oral promise from Qatari leaders, who assured Kylian Mbappé that he would be allowed to play in the Paris Olympic Games in the summer of 2024. The media also indicates that Real Madrid leaders also discussed this point with Kylian Mbappé during summer negotiations, without it being known whether the merengue club was ready to release the former Monegasque for the Olympics. If this element was probably not decisive in Kylian Mbappé’s choice to extend to PSG, there is no doubt that it contributed to placing the club in the French capital in a good position in the mind of the player.

It now remains to be seen whether Paris Saint-Germain, which has no obligation to release its elements for events such as the Olympic Games, will keep its promise regarding Kylian Mbappé in 2024. A priori, there is no no reason why not. Unlike the meeting in Beijing a year ago, the event will be huge in France in two years. The 2018 world champion striker will be one of the headliners, by his expected performances on the field, but also by his reputation and his aura which goes far beyond the framework of football. If Qatar has often been invited to show its firmness with its players and contracts that go beyond the framework of PSG, it will certainly have to let go of the rope on this specific point. And if not, no doubt it could make a lot of noise. A little too much for QSI which seeks above all to keep a smooth and very friendly image with France.
