Kylian Mbappé tells PSG he intends to leave, putting soccer's most valuable star on the market

Jun 13, 2023

Kylian Mbappé has told Paris Saint-Germain that he intends to leave the club when his contract expires next June — a bombshell decision that could lead PSG to sell Mbappé for a gargantuan fee this summer.

Mbappé has one season remaining on that lucrative contract, plus an option to extend it through 2024-25. But according to multiple reports on Monday, he and his representatives sent a letter to PSG informing executives that he will not be exercising that option.

Tuesday, Mbappé said in a statement to the AFP that PSG had known since the summer of 2022 that he wouldn't be renewing his contract with the club.

"The board has been informed since July 15th, 2022 of my decision not to extend beyond 2024, and the letter sent was only meant to confirm what I already told them," Mbappé said in a statement.

And so PSG, the French superclub that planned to build around Mbappé, its 24-year-old Parisian star, suddenly finds itself staring down the transfer market's most devilish decision.
