According to L’Est Républicain, in the eastern commune of Tallenay, 10 ballots were cast in favour of Paris Saint-Germain striker in the second round of the French presidential election this Sunday. The followers of the Ligue 1 top scorer – 10 of the 348 registered voters – had printed out pre-prepared ballot papers and placed them in their envelope. Imagine the payout you could have got at the Royal Vegas Casino if Mbappe had actually won! Despite this, the ballot papers were deemed unlawful because the run-off election pitted incumbent President Emmanuel Macron against far-right contender Marine Le Pen. With 58.5 percent of the vote voted in his favour, the latter won the election and a second term in office. Despite the fact that there is no football team in town, the PSG superstar received 10 votes in the election as part of a planned protest. Mbappe’s political career will have to be put on wait for the time being, with his current contract predicament at PSG being one of the most talked-about topics in European sport. Talleny, a tiny commune in eastern France, saw 85 percent of its 348 registered voters turn out, with 70 percent of the electorate voting for President Emmanuel Macron, far more than his right-wing opponent Marine Le Pen as mentioned before! The future of Mbappe: Well, the future of Mbappe is certainly not in politics! – so, the question is, where is it? The Parisian-born attacker has become a national hero in France after playing a major role in France’s World Cup victory in Russia in 2018. His goal against Croatia in the 2018 World Cup final made him the first youngster to score in a final since Pele in 1958. Mbappe has scored 165 goals in 213 games for PSG since joining from Monaco in 2017. However, the forward’s future appears to be uncertain, as his current contract is set to expire at the end of the current season. Despite widespread speculation that the attacker will join Real Madrid on a free transfer this summer, The Telegraph reports that the Ligue 1 winners are growing increasingly optimistic about their star player’s future, and think he will stay at the Parc Des Princes. The Parisians are said to be intent on making the France international the highest-paid player in the club’s history, while also keeping him in the capital until at least the Qatar World Cup in the winter. Mbappe has 33 goals in 42 games this season, including two against Real Madrid in the Champions League second round. His brace, though, was insufficient as Los Blancos rallied back to advance and humiliate Mauricio Pochettino’s side once more.
