The French forward is linked with the move from Parc des Princes, but a new striker wants to play with him next season.
Gini Wijnaldum says he sympathizes with the new teammate of Paris, Kylian Mbappe,’s dilemma about whether he wants to leave the Ligue 1 giants – but he is hopeful that the forward will remain.
Wijnaldum is one of several star players who arrived at PSG this summer, along with Gianluigi Donnarumma, Sergio Ramos and Achraf Hakimi, as the Parisians want to finally win their first Champions League title.
However, Mbappe, whose contract expires next year, has still not committed himself to the new conditions with the French capital, with the speculation that this summer could make a big move.
What was said?
Wijnaldum, who signed his own contract at Liverpool to leave freely before choosing to join PSG over Barcelona, says he is very keen that Mbappe would agree to renewed terms at the club, as he was one of the main reasons why he chose Ligue 1 in advance. of La Liga.
He told RMC“Everyone wants Mbappe to stay, start with me, because he’s one of the reasons I came to PSG to play with players like him. I was very happy to see that Neymar extended.”
Given his own recent contract at Anfield, Wijnaldum has sympathy with Mbappe who may be considering moving to a new challenge, and that he should ultimately personally decide what is best for his career.
Wijnaldum said: “I was in that position too and you mostly follow your feelings. I just hope he goes to PSG because the club is doing their best to make this team the best in the world.”
Can Mbappe leave PSG?
Mbappe joined PSG from Monaco in the summer of 2017 and has since become a World Cup winner and a Champions League finalist, so it will likely require an astronomical bid to give the French forward away from Parc des Princes .
The longer Mbappe keeps a new deal, which follows after PSG missed the Ligue 1 and Champions League titles last season, the greater the possibility that PSG will have to make money.
Wijnaldum appeals to Pogba
Another star player linked with PSG is Paul Pogba, who also has to sign another contract extension, this time with Manchester United.
While a move away from Old Trafford has long been committed for Pogba and has yet to succeed, Wijnaldum would have liked to have chosen the 2018 World Cup winner course for his native France and appealed to the midfielder.
He said: “He’s amazing, I’ve played against him a few times already and what a fantastic player! If you ask any player from another team if he wants Pogba to join him, everyone will say yes, because he is an extraordinary player, full of qualities.
“He has everything. He is one of the best midfielders in the world. We need all the players for a season. I would like to have Paul Pogba here, because he is an excellent player. ‘
