Kylian Mbappé reacted on social networks to his double during Reims-PSG (0-2)
PSG’s victory in Reims on Sunday (0-2) will be remembered as Lionel Messi’s first match under the Parisian colors. Perhaps also like the last of Kylian Mbappé with the same jersey. While waiting to be fixed on his future when the transfer window closed on Tuesday night at midnight, the French star struck again by scoring a brace to deliver a fourth Ligue 1 success in as many meetings at PSG in Champagne.
He celebrated these two goals ostensibly with a burst of joy with his teammates. He also expressed his great satisfaction with the work done on social networks by welcoming the accounting operation in a post in English. “3 points, 2 goals… The perfect night.” Classic which leaves nothing to shine on the wishes of the French international who will join the France team at Clairefontaine on Monday.
Things around Mbappé will boil over the next few hours as Real Madrid could increase their offer to sign the star this summer. The latest proposal (170 million euros + 10 million bonus) was dismissed by the Parisian leaders about a player who has only one year of contract.
Pochettino not surprised by Mbappé’s “enthusiasm”
On Sunday night after the game, Mauricio Pochettino was unwilling to bounce back to rumors of a potential departure. Nor on the possibility that this meeting could be Mbappé’s last at PSG. “Is this information or a question? He retorted. Our president (Nasser Al-Khelaïfi, editor’s note) and our sports director (Leonardo) have already raised the subject.”
Both executives are clear: they don’t want to sell their star unless they get the compensation they want. Released on Mbappé’s very happy and determined attitude, Pochettino said he was not surprised. “No, I wasn’t surprised at his enthusiasm.”
