Mbappe could play last game for PSG, 2nd place up for grabs

Paris, May18 (BNA): Kylian Mbappe may play his last game for Paris Saint-Germain when the French league season ends on Saturday, reports AP.
The champions will host struggling Metz with Mbappe looking to add to his league-leading 25 goals and his overall tally of 168 since joining PSG from Monaco five years ago for 180 million euros ($190 million).
Mbappe has yet to reveal what he will be doing when his contract ends next month, with reports linking him to a move to Champions League finalist Real Madrid.
PSG turned down the same amount they signed him for when Madrid tried to buy him during the past offseason. Now the Spanish club could get him for nothing.
When Mbappe won the league’s best player award for the third time last Sunday, he said his mind is pretty much made up but didn’t say which way.
While PSG fans will be holding their collective breath, nerves will be jangling elsewhere on Saturday.
The race for second place between Monaco and Marseille is going to the wire, with the teams level on points.
The relegation battle is also close with storied clubs Bordeaux and Saint-Etienne in deep trouble.
Monaco is in second place, which secures automatic entry into next season’s Champions League. The team leads third-place Marseille on goal difference with a difficult match coming up at Lens.
