“They gave him all that power and strength because he’s French” Angel Di Maria drops bombshell on Kylian Mbappe’s influence in PSG amid Lionel Messi exit rumor

Angel Di Maria came up with a bombshell after the former Parisian talked about Kylian Mbappe and about the power the Frenchman is in with the club despite Lionel Messi and Neymar being in the team.

Kylian Mbappe was set for a blockbuster move to Real Madrid in the summer of 2022 but PSG pulled off a contract extension in a bizarre fashion after the superstar previously denied signing a new extension.

PSG involved France’s President Emmanuel Macron who called the Frenchman on several occasions before signing the new contract and PSG gave the World Cup winner a bunch of new authorities including the approval of the new signings as well as the leadership role.

However, Mbappe’s former teammate Angel Di Maria came up with the situation at the Parc Des Princes after the Frenchman was put in charge of the team that made Lionel Messi, the greatest of all time left in isolation.

Speaking to ESPN Argentina, Di Maria said: “I think France in general has given Mbappe a lot of responsibility. The people, the president, PSG. They made him stay when he could have left and gave him all the power to be him and no one else.”

“But there’s a big difference, they gave him all that power with the best in history [Messi] next to him.”- Di Maria further added.

Di Maria joined PSG in August 2015 from Manchester United for a reported fee of €63 million, which at the time was a record transfer fee for a British club sale.

Di María was a key player for PSG during his time at the club, helping them win numerous domestic trophies including several Ligue 1 titles and the Coupe de France and also has also played a key role in helping the team reach the final of the UEFA Champions League in the 2019-20 season.

“I think they gave him all that power and strength because he’s French, he was born there, won a World Cup, and has an extraordinary career ahead of him. But all that aside, when I was at PSG he was a good boy and I don’t think he’s changed so much.”- the Argentine concluded.

The situation at PSG is complicated and Lionel Messi could set to leave the club at the end of the current campaign as Kylian Mbappe will be deciding who PSG will sign as his replacement.
