• PSG ended its season by crushing FC Metz in a boiling hot Park, marked in particular by the end of the strike of the ultras and the extension of Mbappé.

  • Kylian Mbappé has signed a three-year contract extension at Paris Saint-Germain.

  • The number 7 appeared on the lawn alongside Nasser Al-Khelaïfi to announce his decision, before slamming a hat-trick and capsizing the Parisian public.

At the Parc des Princes,

We will never know what really went through Nasser Al-Khelaïfi's head when he entered the lawn of the Parc des Princes on Saturday evening, around 8:50 p.m., to proudly announce Kylian Mbappé's extension to PSG .

But it had to look something like this: a kind of mix between a belly dance, a double axel-triple toe loop and a frenzied twerk on the face of Florentino Perez.

After months of negotiations and night sweats, the president of Paris Saint-Germain undoubtedly had the biggest blow of his career, that of succeeding in keeping Kylian Mbappé under the nose and the beard of a Real Madrid in state of health and psychological emergency.

If the Bondynois took the time to make up his mind and drove the entire football planet crazy for looooooooog months, he finally chose to put his childhood dream aside to prefer that of breaking everything with the club of his city.

An ad sober as a day without booze

On the same stage that hosted the gaggle of five-star recruits last summer, that's what he said at the microphone.

“I am very happy to continue the adventure, to stay here in France, in Paris, in my city.

I have always said that Paris is my home.

I hope I will continue doing what I love to do the most, playing football and winning trophies with all of you”.

Simple, basic.

Given the endless wait around this Netflixesque soap opera (not easy to pronounce), we would have expected more tinsel in the announcement of this three-year extension.

But no, no arrival on the back of a camel, surrounded by jugglers, fire-eaters and bear tamers.

This is perhaps, ultimately, the PSG that the new king of bled Kylian Mbappé wants.

Tired of the way the club has been managed in the past, the kid from the 15th arrondissement wanted to be sure that the project we were going to offer him would be able to allow him to win everything.

If we do not yet know exactly what was promised to him – obviously the head of Leonardo, already, who learned of his dismissal in the wake of the victory against Metz – the arguments hit the mark.

These questions, the public at the Parc des Princes had nothing to do with them on Saturday evening.

He had just come to enjoy, he who suffered so much this season from the lack of Parisian play and elimination against Real Madrid.

After months of dragging their feet to the Park, the Parisian supporters had finally found the banana when leaving the metro entrances on Saturday evening.

And they never lost it, throughout an evening marked by a new masterclass of their number 7, author of a hat-trick and who finished the season top scorer (28) and top passer (17) in the championship.

A first in the history of Ligue 1.

Herrera provides after-sales service for Mbappé

We would have liked to ask him a few questions in the mixed zone but the guy didn't show up, perhaps so as not to have to face the dozen or so Spanish journalists who were sharpening their knives while brooding over the news.

We just caught a glimpse of the brother and dad, smiling too, before they slipped away to the players' parking lot.

We will therefore be satisfied with Ander Herrera, the sure guy that PSG sends when it is necessary to do the job with the press.

It must also be said that he does it well.

“We did not know Kylian's decision this afternoon.

We found out when we arrived at the stadium before the match.

He and the club did a great job of keeping it a secret in the final hours, he laughed.

We were obviously very happy.

I'll tell you what I've already told my friends who are Real Madrid fans: here he can become the greatest player in the history of the club.

And I think that played into his decision.

At another club, Real Madrid for example, he could be a very important player, but here he can become the best in history.

He has at least three years left to prove it.
