The renewal of Mbappé, a matter of state in France



It is not surprising that in certain countries elite athletes occupy prominent military positions, as was the case in the Soviet bloc, or that they are a weapon of state propaganda, as in Chinese. But it is surprising that something like this can happen in the most republican Francewhose main authorities seem focused on ensuring that Kylian Mbappe don't move from Paris to Madrid. As if it were the cultural exception of cinema, the French authorities raise the tricolor flag to try to retain the footballer, who has become a fundamental pillar for the country: 'Liberté, Égalité, Mbappé'.

The last to raise her voice was the mayor of Paris, Anne Hidalgowhose Spanish origin (she was born in San Fernando and became a French national at the age of 14) did not prevent her, after her exhibition on Tuesday, from openly asking her to continue in the PSG. "Above all, beyond football and results, he is very important and valuable in giving hope to our youngsters."He assured. "That's why I'm asking you to stay. I just want to tell her that we love her very much, that in our country and our city she is an example for many young people, "added the presidential candidate.

Before the mayor Emmanuel Macron He had already manifested himself to recommend that he continue in Paris. "PSG is a great club that has known how to make it grow and I think it's important that it stays.

The tenant of the Elysee is still attentive to the future of the star of the 'bleus'. Not only has he been interested in how the matter is, but he has "encouraged him to continue" at PSG, a message that he would have "conveyed to him personally". His predecessor at the Elysee Nicholas Sarkozy He was present on Tuesday in the box at the Parc des Princes and is also 'lobbying' so that the 23-year-old player does not leave France. The former president is a good friend of Florentino Perez (Three years ago Nasser Al-Khelaïfi got angry when he saw the two hug each other after a white victory over PSG in the Bernabéu box). But as strong or stronger is his relationship with Qatar, owner of the Parisian club and that, according to Sepp Blatter, would not have this year's World Cup without his intervention.

Such a maelstrom surrounds Mbappé that the amazing thing is that on Tuesday he faced what could be his future team and gave a real recital topped off with a goal celebrated with total naturalness. "The tie is not going to influence my future. I play for one of the best teams in the world, I'm going to give 100% this season and then we'll see. I haven't decided," he said after the match, without losing his smile, this 'enfant de la Patrie.
