PSG Talking Podcast: Reaction to Mbappé Rejecting Real Madrid and Staying at PSG
The UEFA Champions League final is this weekend, but for Paris Saint-Germain supporters, the biggest trophy was won over the weekend.
We begin the show by asking the panel to share their initial thoughts on Mbappé’s decision and what it means for PSG and Ligue 1 to have arguably the best player in the world staying in his home country of France. I also deliver a hot take that Mbappé was never really considering Real Madrid and went out of his way to troll their fans and the Spanish media.
Next, I ask the panel why they think Mbappé decided to remain in the French capital. Was his decision based purely on money, as so many in the media have stated, or does he simply have a deep love for his home country and the city where he was born?
We also discuss how Real Madrid fans reacted to the news, La Liga’s threat to take legal action against PSG, and whether the Spanish champions would ever welcome Mbappé in the future if he wanted to come.
While we don’t have the official figures and terms of his contract, it’s been reported that Mbappé will have a say in the sporting project at PSG. We debate whether this is a good thing for the club considering Neymar Jr. has had similar power in the past and that hasn’t led to Champions League glory.
Other topics we cover in the podcast include PSG’s summer plans, changes in the hierarchy, and whether Mbappé does need to leave the French point at some point in his career to test himself against tougher competition.
