Whatever Mbappe does off the pitch, his status continues to be defined by his footballing achievements. During the summer transfer window, it seemed that many people, including Mbappe, believed that he would leave Paris for Madrid, the headquarters of the team has always had a special attraction for every star and this striker has been recognized. 

Visited at the age of 14. Mbappe has talked with PSG many times about the future, even Vn88 has prepared a plan for a video game version with the image of this striker wearing a Real Madrid shirt.

PSG accepted a one-on-one battle, when they refused an offer of up to 200 million euros Real Madrid made last summer, meaning they are ready to accept the loss of the number one star this summer because of expiration. contract. In June, when the contract expired, Real Madrid returned once again and offered the biggest signing in history. But PSG counterattacked for the last time, with support from President Macron. The vision given to Mbappe by the French President is to become a national symbol, a national hero. Therefore, Mbappe has thought again.

The direct intervention of the French President, as said, has only one precedent. In 1961, the Brazilian Government passed a law designating Pele as a “national treasure”, a cultural property of such great importance that the “King of Football” could not leave the country. “I never imagined I would talk to the President about my own future, about my own career, so this is crazy, really crazy,” Mbappe shared on Vn88.cx: “He said to me, ‘I want you to stay. I don’t want you to leave now. You are very important to this country.” “Of course,” the PSG star continued, “when the President tells you that, you have to consider it.”

Mbappe chose to stay at PSG and the sceptre-like contract was given to the French striker, bringing him to a position even higher than Neymar or Messi. The consequence is that every move that shows Mbappe’s ego is scrutinized by the media, such as a disappointed face at not being able to pass the ball or a penalty dispute with Neymar. Mbappe said he was annoyed by the accusations of competing for the throne. “It’s none of my business,” he said. “I don’t want to do it because I’m not good. I’m only good on the pitch. Off the pitch, that’s not my role.”

Currently, Mbappe confided to Vn88 that he wants to focus on strengthening his position as a national symbol in France. He wants to win the World Cup again. He wants to win the Champions League with PSG. He wants to succeed Messi and C.Ronaldo to become the best player in the world. And he wants the Ballon d’Or. Since childhood, Mbappe has dreamed of such a dream, not until today.

Mbappe still describes himself as an “ordinary guy”, doing a “normal job”. That normality is that 16 years old started his career, 19 years old won the World Cup, 23 years old is considered a national treasure. Maybe, as he said: “The only thing I regret a little bit is that I didn’t have much time to grow up. However, this is the career and life I desire”. If he did not dare to think big, perhaps Mbappe would not be as successful as he is today.
