Kylian Mbappé informs PSG he won’t extension his contract a sale this summer now possible

Kylian Mbappe sent a formal letter to Paris Saint-Germain on Monday afternoon, informing them that he will not trigger the one-year option to extend in his contract for a further year until 2025, according to a report from The team. It is an extraordinary development in the never-ending saga surrounding the France skipper’s future in the French capital. The outlet broke the news last month that the PSG frontman was unlikely to activate said option, but he has now taken the initiative to officially inform his club of his decision.

As it stands, Mbappé will therefore be a free agent come next June and PSG will lose their marquee player on a free transfer. According to The Teamthe club’s hierarchy has been taken by surprise by the 24-year-old’s move, as they felt that talks regarding a contract extension were ongoing in a “positive” mood. PSG were not previously considering the idea of a sale for Mbappé this summer. Now the Ligue 1 champions are reportedly weary of the situation and prepared to take a hard line. From PSG’s point of view, either Mbappé must extend his contract or he will be sold. Under no circumstances will Mbappé be allowed to leave on a free, The Team affirm. Some days ago, a video circulated of Real Madrid president Florentino Pérez, who replied “yes, but not this year” to a fan when asked if Los Blancos would go for Mbappé. Following tonight’s news, the Real Madrid president, in the market for a striker, might change his mind.

PSG’s Qatari owners are confused by this latest development – they were willing to make significant efforts to extend Mbappé including via giving him stakes in certain Qatari state investments, similar to what Inter Miami have done with Lionel Messi.
