Kylian Mbappe’s relationship with Paris Saint-Germain (PSG) is showing no signs of improving.
Mbappe’s transfer rumors, which seemed to die down after he re-signed with the club last year, have resurfaced. Mbappe, who will be a free agent this time next year, has refused to exercise his contract extension option, causing PSG a headache. PSG wants to prevent Mbappe from leaving without a release clause, which means the club will have to sell him in the summer transfer window. 메이저도메인
PSG president Nasser Al-Khelaifi has issued an ultimatum to Mbappe. “We want Mbappe to stay at the club, but he cannot leave for free,” Al-Khelaifi said when the subject of Mbappe came up during Luis Enrique’s unveiling press conference.
“I was very shocked to learn that Mbappe has decided to leave for free,” said Al Khelaifi. It’s very disappointing because I think Mbappe is a fantastic player and a gentleman. It’s not like Mbappe to leave without a transfer fee while weakening the biggest club in France. I was shocked when I heard that Mbappe had decided to leave the club without a transfer fee, and I’m really disappointed,” he said, adding that he was disappointed with Mbappe’s decision.
Mbappe will likely have to make a decision in the next two weeks. “He has to make his own decision within the next week, two weeks at the most,” Al Kelaifi said. If Mbappe decides not to re-sign, the door is open for him to leave the club. The same goes for the other players besides Mbappe. No player is bigger than the club. No player is bigger than the club, not even me. This is clear,” he said, adding that Mbappe has two weeks to decide whether to stay or go.
If Mbappe decides to leave the club without signing a new contract, Real Madrid is the most likely destination. Real tried to sign Mbappe last season, and with the recent departure of Karim Benzema, they have a gaping hole in their frontline. The fact that Real are looking to build their squad with younger players could also increase their chances of landing Mbappe.
