All eyes are on Kylian Mbappé to see what the 24-year-old does as he becomes a free agent in June 2024. The Paris Saint-Germain star could have his decision decided if the capital club fails to advance to the UEFA Champions League knockout stages.
Real Madrid is keen on signing the Frenchman. However, they’re reportedly setting limits, with a deadline for him to commit to the Spanish giants. As for PSG, all is quiet on their end.
Is Kylian Mbappé ready to commit long-term to PSG?
According to L’Equipe (h/t Canal Supporters), the 2018 FIFA World Cup winner has stated that the decision is based on belief in a project and not on the result of a single match, regardless of whether it is tragic or magnificent.
Furthermore, the French media outlet notes that if Mbappé decides to extend his contract with PSG, it will be a long-term agreement, not two years, like the last time he opted to prolong his deal with the Ligue 1 side.
The 24-year-old has made it known that he wants to win the Champions League for his hometown club. The Parisians began building a project this summer that shows Mbappé they’re committed to having a squad up to his standards.
L’Equipe adds that the winger played a role in convincing players Ousmane Dembélé, Randal Kolo Muani, and Lucas Hernandez to join him in the French capital since these would be players he feels close to.
