PSG players did not choose Mbappe as captain

France is the club's number one star, but Kylian Mbappe only ranked fourth in the secret vote to elect the PSG captain in the 2023-2024 season.

According to RMC Sport, PSG players have voted by secret to choose the captain for the new season. As a result, midfielder Marquinhos continues to hold this role thanks to the highest number of votes.

The person with the second and third most votes was midfielder Danilo Pereira and midfielder Presnel Kimpembe, respectively.

Mbappe has worn the PSG captain's armband many times, most often at the end of last season. The French press once said that wearing the club captain's armband was one of the conditions Mbappe offered to PSG to extend his contract in the summer of 2022, when it was reported that he wanted to move to Real.

Currently, Mbappe's future is unclear. In June, he announced that he would not sign a new contract with PSG, even though he only had one year left on his contract. This means Mbappe is free to leave next summer. Not wanting to lose the club's number one star, who made them spend $ 200 million to bring back from Monaco in 2018, PSG sold Mbappe.

They removed the 24-year-old striker's name from the list of Asian tours and put it on the transfer floor because they believed that he had tacitly agreed on personal terms to join Real in the summer of 2024. PSG believe this move can help them sell Mbappe for Real for $ 271 million and set a new transfer record.

However, Real has so far remained silent. The club most eager to own Mbappe is Al Hilal. The Saudi team offered a record price of $ 330 million and offered to pay Mbappe 775 million a year. PSG accepted, but Mbappe disagreed.

On August 13, PSG announced Mbappe returning to the first team. According to Sky Sports, this is a signal that the 24-year-old striker can renew with PSG this summer. This information is even more grounded when the 24-year-old striker was introduced to the field in the 1-1 draw with Toulouse in the second round of Ligue 1. In this match, Mbappe scored the only goal for PSG on the 11m mark.
