France has turned the issue of whether Kylian Mbappé will stay at PSG or not almost into a matter of national importance. This morning, French Minister of Sport, the former swimmer and Olympic silver medalist Roxana Maracineanu, directed a message to the player during her appearance on state television.

"Kylian, stay in France. We want to continue watching you play here. We need you, the public needs you, PSG need you and our young people need to have role models and examples to look up to. Please, don't leave us, stay here in France," Maracineanu told France Info.
