Mbappé saves PSG every weekend. The French star scored a brace, lifted his team, and scored in the great history of Paris. Champions League, renewal, and his evolution as a footballer in the worst team of the Qatari era.

Kylian Mbappé came to the rescue of a Paris Saint-Germain that fell to a weak Saint Ettiene. The French striker showed an impressive level and the desperate plan to renew him is becoming more and more understandable.
Bondy’s talent was decisive in the Champions League against Real Madrid and yesterday in Ligue 1: with a brace, he led his team’s comeback, assisted Danilo in the last goal, and scored the tournament’s top scorer and assists, along with Wisconsin Ben Yoder and Lionel Messi.

That’s not all. Mbappé entered the great history of PSG with his two goals that put him in second place in the Paris Saint-Germain all-time scoring chart, surpassing by one the 156 goals of Zlatan Ibrahimovic and 44 behind Edinson Cavani.
The World Cup winner with France finishes his contract in July and can negotiate as a free agent with any club in the world. The looks and miraculous requests are with him and he was asked if he will remain at PSG to break the record:
“I only have Cavani left. It’s not something that can be ignored”

Since December 7, Kylian Mbappé has scored 14 goals in 13 games in all competitions. His transformation to a total striker has been unstoppable.
Two years ago, we were talking about a left-winger with some difficulty shining in tight spaces, but since the arrival of Mauricio Pochettino, he has evolved into an attacker with the freedom to move all over the pitch and a tendency to plot breaks in the final third.

Amidst the scandals and frustrations over the team’s sluggish performance, Kylian’s evolution – which is not directly related to Pochettino anyway – is one of the few positives in this tenure.
The feeling in every game with Mbappé is that he is a player who faces defenses that are helpless or helpless to counter him because no matter how many players are put on him, he always comes out unscathed in duels.

The final stretch of the season is approaching and he is on tenterhooks about the possible loss of Mbappé. If he loses him for free it will be the worst deal of the Qatari board.
Although for the striker his renewal is a secondary issue. Mbappé only has won the Champions League in Paris on his mind.
He will then communicate his decision, while the fans at the Parc des Princes have four months to continue to enjoy a player who is on track to mark an era within European soccer if he has not already begun to do so.
