In a series of interviews on Tuesday, al-Khelaïfi insisted that Mbappé had given him his word that he would stay in Paris.
“He has a gentleman’s agreement with me,” al-Khelaïfi told L’Équipe. “Our agreement is not a matter of money. It is between a player and the president of the club, the sporting director and the coach. It is more than a signed agreement.”
Al-Khelaïfi also said that he was confident that Mbappé would want to stay in Paris because of the club’s ambition to win the Champions League.
“He has the ambition to do great things with Paris,” al-Khelaïfi said. “We have everything he needs here: a fantastic coach who loves him and that he loves, the best training centre in the world, a beautiful team. He has everything.”
Al-Khelaïfi’s comments are likely to be seen as a sign that PSG is not going to give up without a fight. The club is determined to keep Mbappé, who is one of the best players in the world.
However, it is still unclear whether Mbappé will keep his word to al-Khelaïfi. The forward has always said that he wants to play for Real Madrid, and he is likely to be tempted by the chance to win the Champions League with the Spanish giants.
The next few months are likely to be crucial in the battle to sign Mbappé. PSG will be hoping that they can convince him to stay, while Real Madrid will be hoping that he will finally fulfill his dream of playing for the club.
This title is captivating because it is clear, concise, and attention-grabbing. It immediately tells the reader that Nasser al-Khelaïfi is not giving up on Kylian Mbappé, despite the forward’s agreement to join Real Madrid. It also hints at the possibility that Mbappé could still stay in Paris.
