Former PSG star David Ginola has noted that while Neymar’s recently announced contract extension will provide continuity for the Parisians, it would be much more important to keep Kylian Mbappe at the club for longer. “There’s no point in renewing with Neymar if Kylian Mbappe doesn’t also sign,” said Ginola France Info.
Neymar had extended the collaboration with PSG until 2025. The contract of Kylian Mbappe expires in 2022, although the offensive star has no intention of pledging again to the Parisians.
In his assessment of the situation, Ginola referred to the ages of the two superstars. “Neymar is 29 and his prime is behind him,” he noted. “Mbappe is more about freshness, raw talent,” added Ginola. That’s why he expects a lot more from his 22-year-old French compatriot than from the Brazilian. “Mbappe is a boy who has enormous potential. We have only seen 60 percent of his possibilities,” he was sure.
Although PSG have the two superstars in the squad, it currently looks in the French Ligue 1 as if Lille should end the successful streak of the capitals and secure the title. With two game days to go, Lille are three points ahead of the Parisians. “Today the players just have to understand that they can’t win anything if they don’t serve the team,” said Ginola, referring to the PSG players.
