Kylian Mbappe’s transfer to Real Madrid received extensive media coverage during the summer transfer window. The French has consistently refused to sign a new contract with PSG (the current one expires in June 2022), and the Spanish media were until recently certain that Mbappe would go to Real after the end of the current season. Spanish “Marca” reports that the situation may change, however, and officials of Real Madrid are worried that Mbappe will decide to stay in Paris. He would have been prompted to make such a decision by the change of the coach at PSG, and as reported by the English and Spanish media, it is possible.
Sportsmail informed that Mauricio Pochettino wants to leave PSG and return to England. There, he would take over Manchester United, which dismissed Ole Gunnar Solskjaer after another defeat. At the same time, the “Daily Mail” writes that Mauricio Pochettino does not feel well at PSG, which is to be influenced by the absence of his family in Paris. The Argentine lives in the hotel all the time, while the closest ones are in London. The PSG cloakroom filled with great celebrities such as Leo Messi, Neymar and Kylian Mbappe is also to deepen the frustration.
Real worries about Mbappe’s future. Will Zidane persuade him to stay?
Who would then take PSG and convince Kylian Mbappe to stay with the club? According to “Marki”, this is Zinedine Zidane. Since the French left Real Madrid, he lives in the Spanish capital and is in no rush to choose a new employer. Spaniards write that he dreamed of becoming the coach of the French national team, but the union decided to extend the contract with Didier Deschmps until the World Cup in Qatar.

“Marca”, citing information from the BBC, reports that Manchester authorities contacted Zidan and wanted to offer him a job. The latter, however, refused, because he is allegedly thinking of taking over PSG. Additionally, the Qatar owners of PSG tried to convince Zidane to join PSG several times, but to no avail.
Theoretically, an interesting sequence of events may occur. If Zidane agrees to take the job as Parisian coach then PSG will be more likely to let Pochettino leave. Parisians will not agree to the Argentine just leaving in the middle of the season. In addition, the Qatar people remember how Thomas Tuchel won the Champions League with Chelsea, in which he found employment after the end of cooperation with PSG. PSG owners are reluctant to repeat this mistake.
They look at all of this with concern in Madrid. It is true that Mbappe decided that he would leave Real after the season, but as “Marca” notes, it was when Pochettino was the coach and there was no question of a substitution on the coach’s bench.
