The final deadline for his decision falls on July 31st. It’s the day he is set to receive €40 million out of his €80 million loyalty bonus. Mbappé’s plan to see out his contract raises the possibility of a free transfer next summer. As a result, it could leave PSG without any transfer fee.
As one of the most valuable assets in world football, the French club could not secure a transfer fee if the player were to leave as a free agent. This scenario poses a significant financial challenge for PSG, as they risk losing Mbappé without compensation.
In a recent report, The Athletic revealed the financial catastrophe it would be for PSG should the 2018 FIFA World Cup winner leave as a free agent. There would need to be a departure of players considering the club cannot account for an incoming sum.
