Kylian Mbappe’s strained ties with PSG persist as he rejects their final contract extension attempt. With a contract expiring next summer, the French star had previously declined a 12-month extension and other offers from PSG. His steadfast stance indicates a strong desire to join Real Madrid as a free agent in 2024.

Despite PSG’s efforts to sell him this summer, Mbappe has rejected numerous offers and transfers. The strained relations have resulted in PSG removing his posters from their stadium and ceasing to sell jerseys with his name. PSG’s last contract offer included a buyout clause and a guaranteed sale in 2024, allowing Mbappe to choose his future destination.

However, the Frenchman rejected this offer, solidifying his intentions to leave next summer. While not training with the first team, Mbappe is part of a unit comprising out-of-favor players, indicating PSG’s decision to marginalize him. Despite his uncertain future, Mbappe has clarified that he will not leave PSG this summer. According to @lequipe, Mbappe rejected a contract loyalty bonus worth €100,000,000 on deadline day.

Kylian Mbappe’s potential free-agent status adds uncertainty to his future, with Real Madrid as the likely destination. The upcoming 2023/24 season becomes pivotal as fans, players, and coaches eagerly await his next move. Staying at PSG for one more season could pave the way for a blockbuster transfer to Real Madrid in 2024.
