Brazilian Leonardo, the sporting director of Paris Saint-Germain, confirmed that his club still has a “good chance” to sign a new contract with the team’s star Kylian Mbappe, despite reports linking him to Real Madrid recently, in addition to a few months left until the end of his contract with the French capital team.
“It’s a complicated issue because we want him to stay here forever, but we must respect his decisions,” Leonardo told Europe One radio.
“I still think there is a good chance of a new contract linking Mbappe to the club, I think it is possible.” People think we call him ‘the best in the world’ because we just want to renew our contract with him, but that’s not true, that’s what we really believe in.
He concluded his speech about Mbappe by saying: At the age of 23, Kylian has shown great abilities and a great personality.
The player participated in 23 matches with his team this season in various tournaments, during which he scored 13 goals and provided 14 assists to his teammates.
Leonardo defended the Argentine coach, Mauricio Pochettino, after his recent criticism: We still believe in all the reasons why we signed him. He needs some time to adapt to the changes that have occurred in the summer.
