According to French media reports, the French superstar sent a letter to the owners of the Park of the Princes last week and said that he would not renew his current contract. That contract expires at the end of next season, and as a result, PSG are expected to sell him as soon as this summer transfer window.
Mbappe’s future has repeatedly appeared in the newspapers ahead of France’s EURO 2024 qualifying campaign. PSG clearly do not allow him to leave for free and many sources emphasize that, it seems the player has played his last game for the reigning Ligue 1 champions.
But PSG is unlikely to sell Mbappe as originally planned, when he firmly said that he would stay in Paris this summer. The France captain was repeatedly asked about this topic in preparation for Les Bleus’ clash with Greece.
“I talked about this, I said, my goal is to stay at PSG. That’s my only option right now. Why mention the end of my contract? I don’t have one. What to explain about this,” Mbappe confirmed.
“They (the newspapers) don’t have detailed information, and that sucks. I know why I’m doing this, and it’s no problem. Am I afraid to go to press conferences to avoid the media? No, I am responsible for my decisions, not because rumors scare me and shirk responsibility.
Being here today is very important. I’ve been used to that since I was a kid. I’m thinking about tomorrow’s match against the national team. That is my only concern. What goes on outside is secondary. I want the audience of France tomorrow to see that I am a great player,” added the French captain.
Before the news that French President Emmanuel Macron also spoke about his future, Mbappe added: “What influence does the president have on my career today? Nothing. He wants me to stay. Paris, and my goal is also to stay. We have the same opinion, that’s all.”
“Am I going to leave PSG? I answered already, I said that my goal is to stay at PSG, that’s my only option at the moment. I’m ready to come back when pre-season resumes. “, Mbappe confirmed.
