How The Champions League Influences Kylian Mbappé’s Future

The outcome of the Champions League semifinal second leg between PSG and Borussia Dortmund will set the timeline for the now inevitable process that will end with Kylian Mbappé joining Real Madrid. A loss for PSG would speed up the events.

“Pressure on my shoulders for Tuesday? This is normal because there is a spot in the Champions League final at stake, especially given the club’s history in the competition. We are aware of the pressure, but the team is very calm. We are confident, we are sure that we will turn it around and qualify for the final. I am ready,” Kylian Mbappé said, according to Fichajes.

The French star expressed his readiness for the Champions League semi final return leg against Borussia Dortmund. To reach the coveted final, the Parisians must overturn the 1-0 deficit from the first leg.

The result of this match will set the timeline for the forward’s much-discussed departure from Paris Saint-Germain. Although the club has already accepted his departure, it seems clear that the player will not speak out while his current team still has a chance to win the top European title.

Therefore, as reported by the newspaper AS, another setback against Dortmund would likely speed up the process. However, considering that PSG still has to play the Coupe de France final against Olympique Lyon on May 25, it cannot be guaranteed that the forward could use PSG’s last Ligue 1 match at the Parc des Princes (on Sunday, May 12, against Toulouse) to stage a farewell.

From a distance, Real Madrid is watching all the developments with calm. Unlike what happened in 2022, they are not worried that the player will let them down again and are confident that it is only a matter of time before the Bondy native announces his departure from PSG and subsequently finalizes his move to Santiago Bernabéu.
