All eyes have been on Real Madrid after Kylian Mbappé opted not to trigger his option, which would have extended his contract until 2025.
Reports suggest that the 24-year-old has been given a decision: Either sign a new contract or be sold this summer transfer window. AS’ Andrés Onrubia reported on Friday that PSG is willing to sell the France international to any team.
Furthermore, Onrubia notes that if Real Madrid presents a fair offer, it will be accepted by the 2022-23 Ligue 1 champions. Ahead of Luis Enrique possibly taking over the managerial role, it seems the Spanish boss wants the matter resolved.
🚨 Novedades con Mbappé
❌ La postura del PSG es la misma
💣 🐢 El club lo tiene claro: si no hay indicios de que el jugador quiera renovar, lo van a vender "a cualquier equipo"
✅ Si el Real Madrid presenta una oferta satisfactoria, se aceptará

Enrique reportedly asked about the Mbappé situation. The Qataris owner’s response to the tactician is that Mbappé will only exit if a significant offer arrives or the player presses for a departure.
The potential transfer would undoubtedly have significant ramifications for both clubs. PSG would face the task of filling the void left by Mbappé’s departure, as his contributions on the field have been instrumental to their success in recent years.
Meanwhile, Real Madrid would gain a formidable attacking force capable of wreaking havoc on opposing defenses and their marquee star player for the next decade.
