PSG: behind the scenes of Presnel Kimpembe’s surprising extension


By: Manu Tournoux

Victim of a ruptured Achilles tendon on February 26 during PSG’s victory (3-0) against OM, Presnel Kimpembe has never returned to the field in the Ile-de-France jersey. If a return to competition was recently anticipated, the 28-year-old French defender will finally undergo a new surgical procedure in London in the coming days. Enough to keep it away from lawns for several weeks. More surprising, however, the capital club decided, Wednesday evening, to extend its Titi Parisien until 2026. “PSG is pleased to announce the contract extension of Presnel Kimpembe. The central defender is now linked to the club until June 30, 2026 (…) Away from the field following an Achilles tendon injury, the defender is expected to undergo surgical correction in the coming days in order to regain fitness as quickly as possible. competition”thus specified the press release from the reigning French champions.

Without his return date to competition being specified, PSG has therefore formalized the extension of the lease of the person concerned and The Team brings new information on this extension which is, to say the least, unexpected. Thus, the French daily indicates that the native of Beaumont-sur-Oise has set a condition for returning to the operating table: the signing of an extension. If the positions were until recently quite distant, the two parties finally quickly came to an understanding, helped by the desire of Nasser al-Khelaïfi to maintain a profile that he appreciates. To conclude, The Team provides some interesting details on the new salary conditions of the Parisian number 3. Indeed, Kimpembe saw his remuneration very slightly increased and backed by a variable portion, depending on the number of matches played. A maneuver reminiscent of that which was carried out for Marquinhos’ last contract.
