Read the Paris reversal farce in one article: why did Mbappé finally reconcile? Why did Neymar agree to go to the new moon?
Beijing time on August 14, according to a number of media reports, Neymar is about to join Riyadh Crescent, while Mbappe has been confirmed to stay in Paris Saint-Germain and is expected to renew his contract. Farce reversal, what the hell is going on?
Rollback! Kylian Mbappe is expected to renew his contract
Mbappe and Paris had already broken off. He wrote to the club that he would not renew his contract and would leave the club without a visa until next summer. Paris have also been tough, warning that he will either renew or sell his contract and not allow him to participate in first-team training, leaving him out of the squad for pre-season and Ligue 1 first-round.
However, things reversed yesterday when Nasser confirmed in front of the whole squad that Kylian Mbappe would return to the first-team squad, and also gave a speech confirming that "Killian is back", praising "Killian is very committed to the club", so Mbappe should remain in Paris and will not transfer this summer.
Kylian Mbappe has promised Paris Saint-Germain that he will not leave on a free transfer next summer when his contract expires and returned to first-team training yesterday morning local time. RMC said it could just be the first step for the two sides to get back together. Paris are optimistic about Mbappe's contract extension and still see him at the heart of the club's plans to build the team.
Foot Mercato's Santi Aouna revealed that Paris' idea is to offer Mbappe a new contract until 2025 at the end of the season and add a "guaranteed sale clause" to the contract. Romano also said Paris was discussing different options with Mbappe, including a potential termination clause in the new contract that will be effective in 2024.
Why did Mbappé reconcile with Paris?
Mbappe was very resolute before, waiting for his contract to expire next year to go to Real Madrid, why did he suddenly change his mind and reconcile with Paris?
First of all, Mbappe has repeatedly promised not to leave Paris for free, and a series of previous statements and actions were considered untrustworthy and had an impact on his personal image.
Second, Paris' tough move made Mbappe realize that if he really got into trouble, it would not do him any good, which opened the door to communication and negotiation
Thirdly, with Neymar's imminent departure, the arrival of friends such as Dembele and Lucas, and the arrival of real centre-forward Gonzalo Ramos, Mbappe is pleased with Paris' performance in the transfer market and believes the club is now heading in the right direction.
Fourth, PSG's players also played a role in Mbappe's change of mind, trying to persuade Mbappe to renew his contract.
In short, Mbappe is definitely not going away this season, and it is possible to renew his contract, as for when to renew his contract, what are the conditions for renewal, and whether he can go to Real Madrid next year? There is a season to give the answer.
Rollback! Neymar agreed to join Crescent
Last summer, Paris Saint-Germain wanted to purge Neymar, but Neymar was determined not to go. Just a month ago, Neymar vowed that he would stay, whether fans loved him or not. But now, the young man is about to leave.
According to the team newspaper, Neymar agreed to join Riyadh Crescent on a two-year contract with a total revenue of 160 million euros. Relevo reporter Matteo Moretto reports that his transfer fee is close to 90 million euros and the player has agreed to a transfer. Telefoot's Saber Desfarges revealed that Neymar's transfer fee is about 100 million euros.
Romano said: "Neymar's negotiations with Riyadh Crescent are in their final stages, and Crescent is optimistic that the deal will be completed within 24 hours. There are still details to be worked on, contracts to be checked and documents ready soon. Paris have also given the green light for a transfer. ”
Why did Neymar agree to go to Saudi Arabia?
Neymar is only 31 years old, not at all to the point of needing to retire, why did he agree to play in Saudi Arabia?
First of all, the Brazilian star most wants to go to his old club Barca, but Barca manager Xavi does not approve of his return, and the La Liga giants face financial problems and many uncertainties.
Second, Santos, another of Neymar's old clubs, tried to bring him back, but was rejected by the player's family.
Third, there were previous rumors that Chelsea, Manchester United and other European giants were interested in Neymar, but it was only rumors, and there was no real contact and offer.
Fourth, Riyadh Crescent is sincere, and communication with Neymar's team remains open throughout the summer, even as Crescent pursues other goals, they are keeping an eye on Neymar's situation. And they offer an annual salary of 80 million, which no European team can do.
Therefore, Neymar decided to join Riyadh Crescent.
