Paris St-Germain (PSG) and French striker Kylian Mbappe find themselves in a state of uncertainty as doubts loom over the player’s future with the club. Speaking to France Football magazine, the 24-year-old expressed his view that PSG is a “divisive” team and club, further complicating his contract situation. Mbappe’s current contract with PSG is set to expire in 2024, but he has informed the club that he will not be signing a new deal.
Mbappe’s comments have raised eyebrows and intensified speculation about his potential departure from PSG. Despite being PSG’s all-time leading scorer, the club’s chairman, Nasser Al-Khelaifi, has made it clear that he will not allow Mbappe to leave for free when his contract ends next summer.
Having won five Ligue 1 titles with PSG since his arrival from Monaco in 2017, Mbappe played a pivotal role in the team’s success last season, scoring 41 goals in all competitions. However, their Champions League campaign ended disappointingly in the last 16 against Bayern Munich.
Mbappe voiced his sentiments, stating that the decisions regarding the team, squad organization, and club building should be directed toward those in charge. PSG recently appointed Luis Enrique as the new head coach, replacing Christophe Galtier, in a transitional phase for the squad.
