“We waited and we spoke with the medical staff, in agreement with him. We made the best decision for everyone. He did everything to be there, but it was impossible”

The worry for PSG now will be considering that the club has failed to win the Champions League in the last two seasons, despite reaching the final in 2020 and the semi-final in 2021, that Mbappe may seek to move somewhere this is more achievable.

The club has been in discussions regarding a new deal and club director Leonardo spoke confidently about the prospect.

“Mbappe will stay here, 100 per cent. He is a PSG player. The rest is the rest,” he said defiantly.

“We will see. We are advancing, advancing slowly but we are advancing,”

However, things change quickly in the sport and the 22-year-old’s future may be more uncertain than club officials believe.

Salah to replace Mbappe

However, French media outlets believe that the man who could replace Mbappe in the French capital is Liverpool’s Mohamed Salah.

‘Mohamed salah is the plan B of the PSG in the event of the departure of Kylian Mbappé this summer. The Liverpool striker wants to leave the Reds two years from the end of his contract,’ wrote le10sport journalist Hadrien Grenier.

Liverpool could miss out on Champions League football altogether next season and Salah may be open to leaving to find a place which can provide the top level competition.
