Kylian Mbappe appears to be staying in Paris Saint-Germain, and reports of his decision to reject a move to Real Madrid have been welcomed by the mayor of the French capital.
Anne Hidalgo, who has served as mayor of Paris since 2014, was quick to respond to the news that the superstar striker is apparently ready to extend his contract.
The saga, which had seen PSG and Madrid in a tug of war over the French national team player’s services, appears to have been won by the Ligue 1 champions.
Widespread reports in France and Spain assured on Saturday that the decision has been made and that the 23-year-old World Cup winner Mbappe has chosen his home city club over the Spanish champions.
In response to a report from RMC Sport, Hidalgo wrote on Twitter, “Que bien !!!!”, which can be translated as “How good !!!!”, accompanied by red and blue hearts – the colors of PSG.
Assuming this is confirmed, the coup by PSG, which retains Mbappe, will largely be seen as a major outcome for the city of Paris, which will host the 2024 Olympic Games and Paralympic Games.
