With no other superstar to take the spotlight and having Ousmane Dembélé as his running mate, Mbappé will have to carry the capital club to success this campaign.
As a result, Le Parisien reports that the 24-year-old expressed his openness to extending his stay beyond the current season. Mbappé will become a free agent next summer after opting to decline his 2025 option.
Furthermore, if this wasn’t already a transfer blow to Real Madrid, there’s more bad news.
🚨🇫🇷| Kylian Mbappé has NO secret agreement with Real Madrid. An extension is a possible option even if it’s not immediate and he could even stay beyond the current season. The Frenchman likes the PSG project. @le_Parisien pic.twitter.com/YqC7bZ9Tay

The French media outlet notes that Mbappé has firmly denied the existence of any secret agreement with Real Madrid. The 2018 FIFA World Cup winner will likely remain with PSG this season. So the rumors linking him to the Spanish giants will probably continue.
PSG has made Mbappé the face of the club, but will that be enough for the Frenchman to remain long-term with his hometown side? Only time will tell and how successful the squad is this season.
