The speculation surrounding Kylian Mbappe’s future at Paris Saint-Germain (PSG) has reached a tipping point, with the Ligue 1 champions reportedly ready to part ways with the French skipper. Mbappe’s current contract with PSG expires next summer, and his reluctance to sign a new deal has fueled intense rumors linking him to Real Madrid.
Adding fuel to the fire, PSG has decided to exclude Mbappe from the club’s pre-season tour of Japan and South Korea, suggesting that they are considering selling him this summer. The decision comes amidst reports that PSG believes Mbappe has an agreement in place to join Real Madrid on a free transfer next summer.
While Mbappe recently featured and scored in PSG’s pre-season win over Le Havre, he will not be joining the squad on their Asian tour. Instead, PSG appears to be planning for a future without the star forward.
According to reports, PSG requested Mbappe to clarify his position by July 15th, but with no communication from the player or his representatives, the club now believes that he is set on leaving for Real Madrid in 2024.
PSG’s President, Nasser Al-Khelaifi, expressed his disappointment at Mbappe’s decision to potentially leave the club for free. Al-Khelaifi emphasized that while they want Mbappe to stay, the door is open for him to leave if he does not sign a new contract.
The situation has put PSG in a difficult position, and they are now reportedly open to selling Mbappe and listening to offers for the forward. Should Mbappe not secure a move to another club this summer, PSG is said to be willing to bench him for the upcoming season.
If the transfer takes place, PSG is expected to accept considerably less than the €180 million they paid to sign Mbappe in 2017. The French club remains confident in their legal position despite the complex situation.
As the transfer window progresses, football fans eagerly await Mbappe’s decision on his future. The prospect of seeing the young superstar potentially join Real Madrid on a free transfer has sent shockwaves through the footballing world, and the coming weeks could prove crucial in shaping the next chapter of Mbappe’s illustrious career.
