Kylian Mbappé Transfer? A Recap of News on the French Star Possibly Exiting PSG

Heading into the 2023-24 season, Paris Saint-Germain seemed ready to build around Kylian Mbappé. Lionel Messi is leaving when his contract expires on June 30 and Neymar Jr.’s name is in various rumors. 

Nonetheless, Mbappé reportedly doesn’t want to be part of the project at PSG as the 24-year-old sent a letter to PSG informing the club that he does not plan to exercise the one-year option in his contract.

Once news broke, the entire football world went into a tailspin. If you missed anything, here’s a quick rundown of the information that various media outlets have revealed about the future of the France international. 

CBS Sports’ Ben Jacobs added that the media got ahold of the letter that PSG received before they could read it and possibly discuss it privately, which didn’t sit well with the capital club. 

L’Equipe was the source of the initial information, but the French outlet noted that PSG assures that Mbappé will not leave as a free agent. Selling him this summer is a definite possibility if he doesn’t extend.

Then the rumors over a possible exit this summer took flight as the Telegraph’s Jason Burt reported that Mbappé is officially on the market. 

With Mbappé on the market and PSG willing to sell, all eyes turned to Real Madrid. Foot Mercato reported that the Spanish club could go on the offensive for Mbappé in the coming weeks. 

Finally, Burt wrapped up the hectic day by reporting that PSG will be looking to sell the 2018 FIFA World Cup winner to the highest bidder this summer. Real Madrid and Premier League clubs will be in the running.

So there you have it, that was the hectic close to a Monday that now has many assuming Mbappé being available and others, especially PSG fans, where this project under sporting advisor Luis Campos is going.
