It smells bad for Kylian Mbappé at the Olympic Games


By: Manu Tournoux

It’s no secret that since his arrival at PSG, Kylian Mbappé has constantly repeated that he dreams of playing in the Paris 2024 Olympic Games. The Parisian star had not hidden his ambition to participate in this celebration of sport and to be the proud representative of the tricolor flag at home. But the more time passes, the more illusory this possibility becomes. And while he seemed to believe it several months ago now, the idea of ​​seeing Thierry Henry call him at the start of the summer now seems less and less likely.

Indeed, according to information from the Team, the hope of seeing Kylian Mbappé play for France during the Olympic Games is very low. Initially, Kylian Mbappé saw himself competing in the Olympics in the shoes of a player from PSG, a French club. This will obviously not be the case since he will leave Paris this summer. And if the French clubs, who retained the players during the Tokyo Olympics since it is not a FIFA date, will be more cooperative, the foreign clubs, like Real Madrid for example, risk not being very open to this idea.

Deschamps and Real Madrid skeptical

The French daily also adds that the Frenchman’s priority this summer remains above all the Euro which will take place just before. It is therefore difficult to plan ahead, especially since if the Blues reach the final, Kylian Mbappé will have less than 7 days to join the Olympic group and prepare for the competition. A frantic pace which would therefore not offer the French any week of vacation throughout the summer. An idea which absolutely does not please Didier Deschamps who has already shown himself to be very reserved about the idea of ​​seeing some of his players play two competitions in a row, especially with the fear of having physical problems for the rest of the season after a been so busy.

Finally, another parameter and not the least, Kylian Mbappé will especially have to digest a big transfer to Real Madrid this summer. He will arrive as a super star and will therefore have quite a lot of pressure on his shoulders. And with the battle to bring him back as well as the money spent (we are talking about a signing bonus of 120 million), Real Madrid will not accept seeing KM7 spoil his start to the season for a competition that does not enter not in FIFA dates. According to the Team, if Mbappé has the means to impose his will on Real Madrid, he also knows that he cannot afford to spend his first 6 months in a club as demanding as Real Madrid, recovering from his been loaded. Kylian Mbappé’s Parisian dream is definitely moving further away than ever…
