According to L’Equipe, Kylian Mbappe decided not to activate the option to extend his contract until the summer of 2025 and he also sent a letter to the BLD to talk about it. This means that the French striker will become a free agent in June 2024.
Thus, PSG need to make a decision, sell Mbappe this summer or continue to keep him for another season, and then accept the loss of Mbappe next summer.
“PSG does not want to let Mbappe leave on a free basis. He must sign a new contract this summer, or be sold,” emphasized transfer expert Fabrizio Romano.
This is said to be Mbappe’s move to put pressure on the PSG board, thereby realizing his dream of joining Real Madrid after many delays. Remember in the summer of 2021, Real tried to negotiate to recruit Mbappe. The Bernabeu team was even willing to spend up to 200 million euros for a one-year contract with the 2018 World Cup champion, but was ultimately rejected by PSG.
With a salary increase and a series of additional privileges, PSG also called for the intervention of the French President to convince Mbappe to stay at the club in the summer of 2022. The capital team’s efforts were also successful when in May / 2022, Mbappe has agreed to extend for another 2 seasons.
With Real at that time, they were willing to wait for Mbappe until the summer of 2024. Now, the Bernabeu team will have to change plans and definitely resume negotiations with the PSG BLD immediately, because they are in dire need of a new striker. to inherit the number 9 shirt that was vacated after Karim Benzema left. Obviously, the name Mbappe is the perfect choice for Real at the moment.
In the last season, Mbappe was the number one star of PSG, with 28 goals, 5 assists. He helped PSG successfully defend the Ligue 1 title.
