Kylian Mbappé may not continue playing for PSG and is said to have already identified potential destinations for the next European season. The French club has informed the player’s staff that he will be benched during the season if he refuses to be transferred in this transfer window or renew his contract.
Mbappé won’t be joining PSG’s squad on their pre-season tour in Asia. The talented French player is not willing to extend his contract until 2025 but also has no desire to leave during this transfer window. He could potentially leave PSG at the end of the season without any transfer fees.
According to Le Parisien, the club president, Nasser Al-Khelaïfi, has reportedly informed Mbappé’s staff that if he doesn’t agree to sign within two weeks, he will be sold. Al-Khelaïfi emphasized that the club comes first when discussing Mbappé’s contract situation.
Three potential destinations for Mbappé
Meanwhile, the player is training with an alternative group, along with other players who are not in the club’s plans. Among the potential destinations, Spanish football, the Premier League, and finally, Arab football, are being considered. However, Mbappé’s preference is to continue playing in European leagues.
Recently, French broadcaster RMC Sport mentioned Al-Hilal as a possible destination for Mbappé. According to the report, coach Jorge Jesus’s team has offered approximately 1 billion euros. Nevertheless, the player is still not keen on the idea of playing in Arab football.
Mbappé has recently expressed that playing for PSG doesn’t help him receive the recognition he deserves. As a result, Real Madrid and Chelsea are closely monitoring the situation. The Spanish side is the favorite if Mbappé’s departure from PSG materializes, as the player has a desire to wear the jersey of the Spanish giants during his career.
There are suspicions within PSG that the star may have a pre-agreement with Real Madrid for 2024, hence the need for a sale now. Without the forward, PSG will face Cristiano Ronaldo’s Al-Nassr in a friendly match next Tuesday in Osaka, Japan.
