Kylian Mbappe caps off landmark day in PSG history with one of his best ever performances

May 21, 2022 marked the first day in a new era for Paris Saint-Germain.

It was a sentiment amplified by club president Nasser Al-Khelaifi before their final match of the season at home to Metz after confirming that Kylian Mbappe had signed a new three-year contract, turning down the chance to join Real Madrid.

Mbappe himself addressed a full-capacity Parc des Princes prior to kick-off, insisting Paris was ‘my city’, that he is thrilled to be staying.

There was, of course, the small matter of a game to be played before PSG’s Ligue 1 title celebrations got underway. It very well proved to be one of the best Mbappe will ever have.

Clearly galvanized by the news, PSG as a whole looked a far more cohesive attacking unit as they have all season.
