Paris Saint-Germain are desperate to dine at the big boys' table. Despite beating some of the teams with rich history and heritage, the club owned by Qatar Sports Investment are not satisfied. The trophy with the big ears is the one they crave so much. Their belief is a UEFA Champions League triumph will announce them as a genuine top side.
PSG do not want to be seen as a selling club and will do everything within their powers to keep their prized assets. Despite buying top rejects from other clubs like Angel di Maria, Sergio Ramos, Achraf Hakimi and Keylor Navas, PSG are far from satisfied. The top hierarchy at the club want to bring the best players in the world to the Parc des Princes, and that is why they are worried that money cannot buy Kylian Mbappe’s allegiance.
Real Madrid are close to signing the crown jewel of the Paris club, leaving PSG infuriated.
If money is the objective, Kylian Mbappe would have signed a new contract with PSG, but the young man wants to leave in the summer. The desperation of PSG to keep Mbappe is well-documented, and it has reached fever pitch as the French international comes closer to the expiration of his contract with the club.
PSG want to keep Mbappe beyond this season and have offered the player the chance to become the highest-paid player in the world. They believe the offer is enough to dissuade the striker from signing for Real Madrid in the summer. Kylian Mbappe has been a long-term target of Los Blancos and would reportedly leave on a free transfer if there is no agreement with PSG before the summer.
Mbappe has not signed a deal with Real Madrid, with an agreement set to take place after the Champions League tie between the two sides. PSG is hoping to convince Mbappe to stay with a mouth-watering deal. The Independent reports that PSG has an offer on the table that should see Mbappe earn over £500,000-a-week. The PSG offer is closer to the £1m mark. It is more than what Los Blancos can offer him.
For many years, Paris Saint-Germain have been chasing the UEFA Champions League with little success. The closest the Paris club came to winning the title was in 2020. They lost to Bayern Munich in the final.
The obsession for the title is high, and that is why the Qatar Sports Investment group has opened its vaults to bring in players that can win them the title. The thought of losing their crown jewel has created an enmity between Real Madrid and PSG.
To avoid losing Mbappe, PSG have offered him a world record mega-offer, which the Frenchman is reportedly considering. Mbappe, who scored the winner in the Champions League first leg match between Real Madrid and PSG, would unleash a chain reaction if he decides to leave PSG.
If Mbappe joins Real Madrid, PSG could offer Paul Pogba a deal to bring him to the Parc des princes. Pogba is in the final six months of his Manchester United contract.
