Angel Di Maria has backed Kylian Mbappe’s decision to extend his deal with PSG. And the Argentine believes the young winger still has plenty of time to join Real Madrid

The 23-years-old has decided to extend his deal for three more years at Parc des Princes. It was a dramatic transfer saga that lasted for almost a year. The Frenchman was reportedly eager to join Los Blancos last summer. And it was quite certain that the forward will join the La Liga Champions this summer when his PSG contract expires at the end of this season. 

However, Kylian Mbappe has taken a U-turn and committed his future to the French capital. Meanwhile, few Spanish media have reported that Los Blancos hierarchy are annoyed by the Frenchman’s behavior. And they might opt to go against buying the 23-years-old in the future. 

But, the former Real Madrid winger and the departing PSG star Angel Di Maria believes it was the right decision for Kylian Mbappe to extend his deal with Les Parisiens. The Argentine said(via Metro):

“I think he has made the right decision. He is still young and has time to go to Madrid, he has time to go wherever he wants, he has only signed three more years and he will be 26, he has a lot ahead of him. He likes to make history and he will continue to make history here, he is close to 200 goals.’’

When the 34-year-old was asked whether Real Madrid would want to buy Mbappe in the future or not. Di Maria said:

“I don’t know, the people at Madrid are complicated, the Bernabeu is difficult, but he has the talent to win them over.’’ 

Is Angel Di Maria right about backing Kylian Mbappe? 

As teammates, they will always try to defend each other. However, it will be interesting to whether the 34-year-old is right or not about saying Mbappe has done right by extending his deal at Parc des Princes. 

Kylian Mbappe has already proven his worth at Ligue 1. So, the Frenchman could have opted to join Real Madrid in order to test himself in a tougher league. By committing to three more years in French football. The 23-years-old has spent a big time of his career in a less competitive league. So, it might show the character that the Frenchman likes to stay in his comfort zone.
