The FC Barcelona locker room is jubilant after Kylian Mbappé’s extension!


Last Saturday, the Mbappé soap opera therefore ended. And what was experienced as a huge blow by the people of Madrid had a very different flavor in Barcelona.

The commedia dell’arte is finally over. Wishing to leave Paris Saint-Germain a year ago, Kylian Mbappé finally changed his mind. But before communicating his final decision, the striker of the capital club marinated all the media for very long weeks. For his part, those around him obviously took pleasure in blowing hot and cold, cleverly raising the stakes.

In the end, the capital club and its supporters are in heaven. Last Saturday, just before the start of the match between PSG and Metz, Nasser Al-Khelaïfi and his number 7 appeared in front of the public at the Parc des Princes to formalize the extension of the Bondynois until 2025. An explosion for all of Madrid. Moreover, Spanish journalists and media have had very harsh words against a player finally pilloried only because he… extended with his club.

The Catalans savor

Still, there is one place in Spain where the extension of the 2018 world champion was greeted with applause: Barcelona. The pro Barça newspapers have already feasted the day after the announcement, and AS reveals that the Blaugranas players also relished the Frenchman’s choice not to join the Spanish capital. The Mbappé file was also very followed by the Culés.

The Spanish newspaper explains that, while some were incredibly surprised by this turnaround, some were ironic and euphoric. AS even claims that a locker room heavyweight sent a message saying that what happened with Mbappé “is like a title” (won by Barça). A message that would have been validated en masse by the Blaugrana workforce, which would also have laughed at all the information announcing for peas a total agreement between the player and the Casa Blanca. In any case, this saga has fascinated the rivals of the Merengues, since AS concludes its article by specifying that certain Barça players have even sent messages to Lionel Messi as well as to Neymar to know the choice of the Frenchman.
