Paris Saint-Germain football player Killian Mbape has extended his contract with the club for another three years today and will remain at the Princes’ Park until 2025.
“I am very happy to continue this adventure, to stay in France, in Paris, in my city. I have always said that Paris is my home. I hope that I will continue to do what I love to do the most, and that is to continue to “I play football and win trophies,” Mbape said ahead of tonight’s match against Metz.
He then lifted the jersey of the club with the number 2025 written on it, in the presence of President Nasser Al-Kelaifi.
Mbape’s contract expired on June 30, and it was speculated that he would move to Real Madrid, which has been trying to bring him in for a year.
Paris Saint-Germain rejected the offer of 180 million euros, for which Mbape arrived at the club in 2017 from Monaco, and the media also stated that the new offer of 200 million euros was not enough.
The Spanish Football Association is dissatisfied with the situation, and the Spanish league stated that it will complain to the European Football Union (Uefa), the French tax authorities and the European Union “for disrespecting financial fair play”.
“Such an agreement attacks the economic viability of European football, jeopardizing hundreds of thousands of jobs and sporting integrity, not only in European competitions but also in domestic leagues,” the Primera said in a statement.
It is scandalous that a club like Paris Saint-Germain, which reported losses of more than 220 million euros last season, after accumulating losses of 700 million in previous seasons (while reporting revenues from sponsors at a dubious estimate), with sports sector costs of “650 million euros for this season, he can sign a contract with these characteristics. Clubs that could accept the arrival of players, without their payroll being endangered, remain without the possibility to sign a contract,” he added.
The statement estimates that the behavior of the president of Paris Saint-Germain, Nasser Al-Kelaifi, and his club “endangers European football as much as the Super League”.
The media speculate that coach Mauricio Pochettino and sports director Leonardo will leave Paris Saint-Germain this summer.
