The sports daily affirms that the Paris Saint-Germain defender is wondering after a full season for him. Because the confirmed presence of Sergio Ramos could announce more complicated days for him, the Spanish defender seeming to be done with his injuries. Another subject discussed at this meeting that he claims, his salary. In the PSG locker room, Presnel Kimpembe is not one of the highest earners, he is not even in the Top 10 with all the same nearly 700,000 euros per month. And the tricolor international believes that he now deserves to earn about as much as his teammate, Marquinhos, the Brazilian captain of Paris Saint-Germain pocketing nearly 1 million euros each month since his last contract extension. A bit of sport and a lot of euros, this is the menu for the next meeting between Kimpembe and Luis Campos.
