The French star extended his contract with PSG in a controversial and unexpected move.

French Sports Minister Amelie Oudea-Castera believes that

Kylian Mbappe

will shine at the 2024 Paris Olympics.

Mbappe decided last week to extend his contract with

Paris Saint-Germain

, while he was expected to leave for

Real Madrid

at the end of the season as a free agent. The 23-year-old star has signed a three-year contract with PSG and will stay with the team until 2025. The French Minister of Sports claimed that Mbappe, who has already won the World Cup, will shine in the 2024 Olympics.

She said: 

"To be on the field, in our magnificent sites, to represent his country at the Olympic Games in 2024, he has always dreamed of it and he will make so many of us dream of it.

"It's a big 'YES' in capital letters. PSG will be fully behind the Olympic and Paralympic Games. I am certain that all this will happen."

Oudea-Castera believes that Mbappe deserves the high salary he receives. She added:  

"The amounts are very high, but that rewards an immense talent, constant work. He is a huge worker, sport also has its big stars as has entrepreneurship," she added.

"It's not dirty or ugly, especially since he gives a lot. Kylian makes his values clear, he is very committed."
