Paris Saint-Germain is building their project around Kylian Mbappé. The capital club has said goodbye to Lionel Messi and Neymar Jr. this summer and put the spotlight on the Frenchman.
While it was a rocky relationship with the 24-year-old not even joining the squad for the tour in Asia, fences are being repaired. The 2018 FIFA World Cup winner is back playing with PSG, scoring a brace last weekend against RC Lens.
Nonetheless, the question surrounding this saga is, can PSG sign the star to a new contract? Diario AS reports that PSG will do everything possible to renew Mbappé’s contract to prevent him from going out for free on July 1.
Furthermore, the Spanish media outlet adds that the Ligue 1 giants have a whole year ahead to negotiate and convince him. It won’t be easy, but that’s what’s coming.

Then there’s Real Madrid with their plans. According to a recent report, Mbappé can only join Real Madrid in 2024 if he doesn’t renew and is free to sign. This was not the case in 2022, resulting in Los Blancos losing out on his signature.
Can PSG do it again and keep their star, or will next year finally be the time he joins Real Madrid?
