Kylian Mbappe has written to PSG that he’ll not be extending his contract with the club beyond 2024. The French club has two options right now: they can sell the youngster for a fee or let him walk away for free in 2024.
Mbappe to discontinue PSG post-2024: will the club sell him for a fee?
Ever since FC Barcelona tried to sign a deal with Marquinhos back in 2016 and was told they had zero chance, it has been the same record on repeat. It was repeated to Barcelona again with Marco Verratti and later on when they were trying to re-sign Neymar. PSG never sold their best players.
Messi has left, and Neymar is ready to go. That being the scenario, Mbappe is the only one left. Besides being the local, he is the world’s finest player right now. With him being gone, will PSG be able to bear the loss?
Keeping a dissatisfied Mbappe in the team might only lead to another unhappy campaign with a bunch of discontented supporters and hardly anything to unite the team. The club president Al-Khelaifi might agree to it. However, in any circumstance, if he says that Mbappe will not leave this summer, Read Madrid will need to find an alternate way to handle the unexpected departure of Karim Benzema.
Supposedly, Benzema for his last year with Madrid. In 2024, the Spanish club was expected to buy Mbappe in a free transfer. He was not going to extend his current contract with PSG.
Benzema’s sudden departure from the club has left Madrid walking on eggshells
With Benzema’s surprise departure, things have messed up a bit with Real Madrid. With Mbappe revealing his unwillingness to continue with his present club, Madrid must wait right now to see the reaction coming from PSG owners following their star player’s declaration.
