This leaves PSG with the choice of either selling him this summer or potentially losing him on a free transfer next year.
As a result, Mbappe has been linked with a potential move to Real Madrid, while Manchester United has also been mentioned as a possible destination if Sheikh Jassim‘s takeover of the club is successful.
Mbappe told La Gazzetta dello Sport: “For a player like me, the goal is to win everything. And we knew that at PSG there were shortcomings that sooner or later we were going to end up paying for.
“I didn’t say I wanted to be sold to Real Madrid or want to leave, but only that I won’t activate the option on the extra year.
“With PSG, there has never been any talk of a renewal. Messi gone? Bad news, he now needs to be replaced.”
