Kylian Mbappe will not renew PSG contract

Kylian Mbappe made a firm decision that he will no longer extend his contract with PSG, which is ending at the end of the 2023-24 season. In a statement released by Mbappe‘s camp, he already expressed that he had no intention of extending his stay in PSG. Additionally, he also said that the board already know about his decision since July 15, 2022. “The board has been informed since July 15th, 2022 of my decision not to extend beyond 2024. The letter was only meant to confirm what I already told them,” he said. Nonetheless, Mbappe still have until the next season to show PSG fans that he is still aiming for a glory with PSG.

Mbappe joined PSG ever since he was just a teenager on a loan from Monaco in August 2017. A year after, PSG already offered him a permanent transfer, in a $195 million deal. In that contract, there is a clause which states that he have until July 31, 2023 to extend his contract for another year. However, it seems like Mbappe is already firm with his decision not to renew his contract. He gave his fans an early surprise though, despite having a year left in his contract. Along with his announcement is a dismissal to rumors that states that he will join Real Madrid. He insisted that these are all lies, and he will be with PSG until the next season. “Lies. I have already said that I will continue at PSG next season, where I am very happy,” he said.

This is huge for PSG though, as Mbappe have been a key to their successes in the recent years. In fact, before he signed a permanent contract with PSG, he already helped PSG to win a title in Ligue 1. As he is leaving after the next season, PSG will certainly not allow him to leave for free. It looks like the upcoming seasons will be tough for PSG, with the departure of Messi, and Mbappe. Neymar on the other hand seems to want the same path with the other two stars, as the club is willing to let him go again. However, it may be different for Mbappe, considering that France is his home country.
