The World Cup-winning forward is only tied to terms at Parc des Princes through to the summer of 2024. PSG are being backed into a corner as a result, with big decisions needing to be made on the 24-year-old’s future.
AND WHAT’S MORE?
It is claimed that an offer was put to Mbappe on Wednesday, which he has now knocked back. PSG’s owners in Qatar are prepared to leave the matter in the hands of club chairman Nasser Al Khelaifi, with a decision needing to be made on whether to spend the 2023-24 trying to convince the superstar forward to stay put or make him available for sale at this point.
THE BIGGER PICTURE
PSG had been hoping to agree a new deal with Mbappe, after blocking the exits, with release clauses being inserted into fresh terms that would allow him to move on at some stage. The France international has, according to Marca, snubbed the latest proposal put to him.
Real Madrid boss Carlo Ancelotti has ruled out a move being made for Mbappe in the current window, as PSG put a world-record asking price around the neck of their most prized asset, but Marca claim that the Liga giants are waiting on a “green light” that would allow them to enter into talks for a player that is said to have agreed already terms on a potential switch to Spain as a free agent in 2024.
