Paris SG hopes to keep Mbappe
Paris SG has a lot of work to do with their roster as the club goes for a quick revamp of their squad. The team wants to make sure that they grant the request of Kylian Mbappe so he stays with them for more years to come.
Paris SG has spent big for more than a decade but now moved on to a new plan as they aim to make sure Mbappe stays with the team for good. There is more to expect from the team as they look to keep a competitive roster and grant Mbappe’s request at the same time.
Mbappe asked for a chance to win the Ligue 1 title. This came after the team fell short of a point to win the league title over Lille in the 2020-21 season. The loss left Mbappe shocked as he did not expect to lose this season at all.
It took a while for Paris SG to make a move about his request. After inking three big stars, the team is now set to make a roster change and this means that the club would take some players out of the squad.
Paris SG has invested well in its talent since 2011. They even brought in the likes of Sergio Ramos and Georginio Wijnaldum to add some spark to their squad. The team also renewed their deals with the likes of Keylor Navas, Angel Di Maria, Juan Bernat, Julian Draxler, and Neymar.
Paris SG hopes to do the same to keep Mbappe, whose deal lasts until 2022. The team opted to offer Mbappe the same salary as Neymar. This is why the team has to cash in some players to free up space in their salary cap.
The team aims to part ways with up to nine players. Alphonse Areola is one of those players who are set to be traded away for a huge transfer fee. The team already saw a move with Mitchel Bakker being sent away to Bayer Leverkusen.
Paris SG is doing all they can to convince Mbappe. If the star does not sign with them, then this would be a huge blow to their future.
