Mbappé said: “I will give everything I have to win the Champions League, league and cup championships. And bring all the happiness to the fans, because they deserve it.”
The deal was about to be finalized, and the striker even admitted at the time that he wanted to leave Paris Saint-Germain. Although the club had to stay in the French capital after the club felt that Madrid’s offer was insufficient, Mbappé did not regret expressing his feelings.
“I am honest. I give a feeling, I give what I have in my heart,” he said. “I am very happy to stay…this is my city too. I am French…this season I want to win everything.”
When asked if he would play for Real Madrid next season, Mbappé said with a smile that he “the only consideration is to beat Real Madrid in February and March.”
Paris Saint-Germain did enter the Champions League final for the first time in 2020, but defeated Bayern Munich 1-0 in Lisbon. In last season’s game, Paris Saint-Germain lost to Manchester City 4-1 in the semifinals.
“We must be prepared. It’s time,” Mbappé said. “This is the most important part of the season. Of course, we want to strengthen now. We have been playing in the finals and semi-finals for two years, but now we want to win.”
Motivation to stay
The native Parisian grew up in Bondi, a commune on the outskirts of the city, and was not even born when France won the first World Cup in 1998.
After moving from rival Monaco to Paris Saint-Germain in 2017, Mbappé has become the top scorer in Ligue 1 for three consecutive years, and has also won the same number of league titles and two Player of the Year awards.
As a teenager, he was named the best young player in the 2018 World Cup and scored 4 goals, one of which was to help France raise the trophy for the second time in the final.
In the club and the national team, he has achieved unparalleled success at such a young age, and the realization of his dream in his hometown team is an important reason for his stay.
“Paris is my city. This is where I was born and where I grew up,” Mbappé told CNN. “Playing for Paris Saint-Germain, playing with family and friends is a wonderful feeling.”
As a child, Mbappe would see Messi playing at his peak from 2009 to 2012, when he won four Ballon d’Or trophies and two UEFA Champions League titles.
These three have not made strides forward this season. In order to play with Messi, Mbappe had to “adapt” to his game and make concessions because the short organizer prefers to work in a small space. .
But Mbappe, the speed player, is very happy to learn from these excellent teammates and play with them.
“I am very happy to tell my child and my friend that I will play with him [Messi]. We must enjoy seeing him in Paris… This is an amazing moment in the history of the game. “
If his plan to move to Real Madrid fails, where else will this superstar go to play? Liverpool, Manchester City, Bayern Munich… maybe even transfer to London?
Interviewer Anderson, who is also a Spurs fan, asked Mbappé the same question, but the 23-year-old forward gave up any possibility of this particular move, which disappointed the CNN anchor.
“I don’t think I will play for Tottenham in my life,” he said with a smile. “he [Tom Holland] Ask me about it, but no, no.This is a great club… and I believe they will achieve good results this season [Antonio] Conte. “
At the same time, Mbappé will continue to enjoy walking on the Seine in winter nights and admire the Eiffel Tower on the way to the game.
However, if his long-term future at Paris Saint-Germain is in doubt, the ambitious light in his eyes is enough to prove that he wants to spend what may be his last six months in Paris.
