Mbappé has rumors linking him with a potential move to Real Madrid continue to swirl. Furthermore, club president Nasser Al-Khelaifi has provided an ultimatum to Mbappé to end the transfer saga.
The ongoing rumors linking Mbappé with Real Madrid intensify the pressure on PSG to make crucial decisions regarding his future. As a result, Al-Khelaifi put a deadline on the 2018 FIFA World Cup winner.
Al-Khelaifi stated that if Mbappé is unwilling to sign a new contract with PSG, they will consider a potential exit.
“Mbappé must decide next week, or maximum in 2 weeks,” Al-Khelaifi told French media outlet Le Parisien. “And if he doesn’t want to sign a new contract, the door is open. […] No one is bigger than the club, no player, not even me.”
While PSG remains hopeful of securing a contract extension and retaining the services of their prized asset, the allure of joining the Spanish giants may prove difficult to resist for the ambitious Frenchman.
