By: Manu Tournoux

Rarely has the future of a player – Kylian Mbappé in this case – involved the French Football Federation to this extent.

Kylian Mbappé, cherished like a national jewel, has not finished fueling various negotiations this summer. In addition to his future at club – the person concerned having chosen to leave PSG after seven years of service and seemingly promised to Real Madrid – it is his participation in the Paris Olympic Games which is today panicking the political, sporting and federal sphere.

The organization of the Games repeated over and over again this week, like the Minister of Sports Amélie Oudéa-Castéra, the presence of the star of the Blues in Paris this summer is a real national issue. Also the French Football Federation (FFF) wants to be combative and determined to convince the White House – probable future employer of the crack – to review its initial posture and the announced non-release of the Merengues for the 2024 Games.

Madrid in the viewfinder

I don't write political fiction, I don't know where Kylian Mbappé will go, no announcement has been made », blows this Wednesday to the Figaro Philippe Diallo, the president of the FFF, while ensuring that he wants to build the “ best possible Olympic team “. “With Thierry Henry and his staff, we are fighting to convince as many clubs as possible,” he continues.

The boss of French football goes further, openly regretting Madrid's displayed firmness. “ I regret the position of Real Madrid which closes the door to a dream of many players. But I respect their decision. It is also the only foreign club to have informed us of this. » And to conclude on an optimistic note: “ If we have to go see Florentino Perez in Madrid, we will! Obviously, having the best player in the world in France for a home Games would be a tremendous asset. »
