Paris St-Germain Prepare To Sell Kylian Mbappe This Summer

Paris St-Germain are prepared to sell Kylian Mbappe this summer rather than risk losing him for free in a year’s time, after he told the French club he will not renew his contract.

The France forward’s current deal expires at the end of next season, with the option of another year.

There was a deadline of 31 July for Mbappe, 24, to tell PSG if he was going to renew until 2025.

After months of talks, he has sent the club a letter saying he will not.

PSG’s record goalscorer would be free to leave for nothing at the end of next season and the move could be a negotiating tactic.

The exit of Karim Benzema to Saudi Arabia means Real need a striker, although it had been thought Tottenham’s Harry Kane was at the top of their list.

Mbappe, who joined PSG in 2017 initially on loan from Monaco before a 180m euros move, has scored 212 goals in 260 games.

He has 38 goals in 68 games for France, including a hat-trick in last year’s final in Qatar, as France lost to Argentina on penalties.

Mbappe finished as Ligue 1’s top scorer in each of the last five seasons and has won five league titles in his six seasons at PSG.
