Nasser Al-Khelaifi hints at Kylian Mbappe staying with Paris Saint-Germain

Qatari Nasser Al-Khelaifi, president of French football club Paris Saint-Germain, has hinted that his striker Kylian Mbappe will continue to play for the team in the coming years.

Mbappe’s Contract Situation

Kylian Mbappe’s contract with Paris Saint-Germain expires in the summer of 2024. He had the option to extend it until 2025 but refused in order to join Real Madrid on a free transfer next summer.

Al-Khelaifi’s Statement

In an interview with Polish Radio Mieczyki, Al-Khelaifi stated, “Kylian Mbappe is a Paris Saint-Germain player. He loves this club and is a great player.”

He added, “Mbappe is the best in the world. We are happy to have him with us and will continue to enjoy him with us.”

Future Destination

Mbappe is expected to decide on his future destination before the start of the 2024/25 season. He may either stay at Paris Saint-Germain or move to Real Madrid if he expresses a desire to join their squad.

Mercato Pressure

Nasser Al-Khelaifi exerted intense pressure on Mbappe during the last summer transfer window. He gave Mbappe the ultimatum to either extend his contract or leave in the summer of 2023. As a result, Mbappe was excluded from the club’s Asian tour in preparation for the 2023-2024 season.

However, Mbappe chose to stay at the Parc des Princes until his contract expires in the summer of 2024. This decision allows him to receive a loyalty bonus from Paris Saint-Germain and then join Real Madrid on a free transfer, where he will receive a significant signing bonus as well.

Mbappe’s Transfer History

It is worth noting that Kylian Mbappe, 24 years old, joined Paris Saint-Germain from Monaco in the summer of 2017 for a transfer fee of 180 million euros.
