Mbappe‘s deal with PSG runs out in 2024 but there is a clause that could see him stay until 2025.
Kylian Mbappe has informed Paris Saint-Germain he won’t renew his contract
Mbappe could leave PSG on a free transfer come January as his deal runs out in 2024
The extra year, though, is a player option, which means it is up to the forward whether he wants to trigger it or not.
According to L’Equipe, however, the star striker has sent the French champions a formal letter informing them that under no circumstances will he be activating that option.
Therefore, the Parisians might have to sell the France international this summer to avoid losing him for free next year.
Just yesterday PSG insisted the 24-year-old won’t be leaving the Parc des Princes in the upcoming transfer window.
But Mbappe’s letter has turned things around and “everything is now open”.
If the ex-Monaco star does not trigger the extra year he will be free to pen a pre-contract agreement with a club outside of France in January.
Real Madrid were very keen to land Mbappe last summer before he signed his current PSG deal, which is worth a reported total of £500million throughout a three-year period.
But Real are already set to splash a significant amount on Borussia Dortmund superstar Jude Bellingham, who will be worth at least £100m.
That means the Premier League’s biggest clubs could come knocking for Mbappe.
Liverpool were previously linked with the Frenchman whereas Chelsea are desperate for a leader in attack.
Newcastle could also invest their Saudi owners’ mega riches on one of the world’s best players.
And Manchester United could be taken over by Sheikh Jassim bin Hamad Al Thani, who is keen to start his bid of restoring the club to the top by signing a top star.
If Mbappe leaves then that means PSG could lose their entire star-studded frontline with Lionel Messi’s going to Inter Miami and Neymar on the verge of his own departure.
