Mbappe, who was excluded from ‘entering the locker room’, runs with Lee Kang-in
Killian Mbafe (25, Paris Saint-Germain) is expected to join the first team dramatically.
European transfer market expert Fabrizio Romano said on the 13th (Korean time), “Mbappe will rejoin the PSG first team squad. PSG had a very positive conversation with PSG before the match.”
Mbappe appeared prior to the kick-off of the ‘2023-24 Ligue 1’ opening game (PSG-Lorient) held at the Parc des Princes in Paris, France on this day. He went to the locker room before the game, and during the game, he watched the match with Ousmane Dembele (25) from the bleachers and his teammate of the French national team.
It is a surprising twist that Mbappe made close contact with the squad, including entering and exiting the locker room.
Mbappe had a very bad relationship with the upper echelons of PSG.
Mbappe signed a ‘2 + 1 year’ contract offered by PSG in lieu of moving to Real Madrid last summer, but he raised the conflict by revealing that he would not trigger the option to extend for another year this summer. This is because Mbappe, whose contract is about to expire next year, adhered to the position of “I will remain with the club unconditionally this season” without renewing the contract.
In response, President El Kelaifi nailed, “Mbappe does not renew the contract and cannot play this season,” and said, “We cannot hand over the world’s best player to another team for free. This is impossible.” has been stated
If Mbappe leaves the team next year as a free agent (FA), PSG will have to let go without paying a penny for the transfer fee. Due to this, the relationship between PSG and Mbappe has deteriorated irreversibly. Still, for Mbappe, who endured, PSG excluded him from the first team squad following the Asian tour list. This is why Mbappe was sitting in the crowd in the opening game.
However, as Mbappe was caught entering and exiting the locker room before the game on this day, the airflow of change was detected in the relationship between the two sides. An observation was also raised that “it seems that a new arbitration plan has come out between PSG and Mbappe.” The British Daily Star said, “Mbappe wants to remain at PSG,” and said, “Mbappe and PSG president El Kelaifi will start a new discussion about contract extension.”
If Mbappe, who was the top scorer last season (29 goals) and ranked first in the next Ballon d’Or, joins the first team, you can see a scene where he breathes with Lee Kang-in.
On the 13th, Lee Kang-in started and led the attack in a situation where the team’s’superstars’ such as Mbafe and Neymar were absent.스포츠토토
Lee Kang-in, who started as a three-top player, recorded 85 ball touches, 88% pass success rate, and 67% dribble success rate. He also played the role of set piece kicker. He scored 8 corner kicks until he was substituted out in the 37th minute of the second half. From the opening game, Lee Kang-in became the main character of ‘The Player’, the MVP of the game captained by the League 1 secretariat.
