Over the previous few years, Real Madrid has shown intense interest in Mbappe, but he initially turned them down in 2022 when he signed a new contract with Parc des Princes.
In addition to losing Lionel Messi after two seasons and Neymar courting interest following another injury-plagued year, PSG, who won the Ligue 1 title, will experience a summer of change.
Mbappe was once again reliable for the French powerhouses, but Champions League success eluded them as they lost to Bayern Munich in the round of 16, and Mbappé’s choice now puts additional pressure on PSG.
Mbappé’s choice, which would compel the club to either sell this summer or allow the World Cup champion walk for free in a year, has surprised the team, 90min understands.
The additional year is an option that both parties may want to exercise, thus doing so requires their consent.
Foot Mercato reports that Real Madrid is ready to present the France captain with an opportunity to leave Parc des Princes this summer in response to Kylian Mbappé’s (24) incendiary letter to Paris Saint-Germain, in which he informed the club that he would not be activating his one-year contract extension.
Mbappé formally notified PSG on Monday that he will not be exercising the one-year option included in his current contract. The former AS Monaco forward would therefore be a free agent in the summer of 2019. But PSG doesn’t want to lose such a resource for nothing, therefore a transfer this summer is actually a possibility.
The situation has apparently perplexed PSG’s Qatari owners, QSI, who reportedly went to great measures to keep Mbappé with Les Parisiens.
In the wake of Mbappé’s stunning letter, Real Madrid, a former suitor, might come back to the table. Contrary to expectations of waiting until 2024, Real Madrid, as claimed by Foot Mercato, had always planned to make another attempt to sign Mbappé after not securing him last summer. The club is now prepared to make a move this summer.
