Kylian Mbappe, the 24-year-old forward, has made a decisive move regarding his future at Paris Saint-Germain (PSG). In a formal letter to the club, he has declared that he will not be activating the option in his contract for a further year until 2025. This decision could potentially see him leave the club in this summer’s transfer window.

Mbappe, who has been associated with PSG for the past six years, has been the subject of transfer rumours in recent years. The news of his decision not to extend his contract has taken the club by surprise, especially as they were making significant efforts to retain him.

For further reading, consider these articles:

According to L’Equipe, the French international sent the formal letter to PSG on Monday afternoon, making his intentions clear. The club was reportedly “positive” over talks surrounding a new contract, but this latest development has thrown a spanner in the works.

Transfer expert Fabrizio Romano posted an update on Monday evening, stating, “Kylian Mbappé has informed PSG of his decision: he’ll NOT trigger the option to extend the current contract until 2025, it means that deal would expire next June 2024 — as L’Équipé called.”

The news comes just a day after Real Madrid president Florentino Perez hinted at the possibility of Mbappe joining the Spanish club in 2023. When asked in the street if Mbappe will be signed, he replied: “Yes, but not this year.”

As it stands, Mbappe will be a free agent when his contract ends next June. This could potentially mark the end of his six-year tenure at PSG. The club’s position is clear: they do not plan to lose Kylian for free. They want him to sign a new deal now, or he could be sold.
