Kylian Mbappe’s future at Paris Saint-Germain has been thrown into doubt after the Telegraph reported that contract talks have broken down between the two parties.
The 22-year-old’s current contract runs until the summer of 2022 and the report states that Mbappe is “continuing to resist signing a new deal” in the French capital. There is now “genuine concern” at the club that the World Cup winner wants to leave PSG at the end of the season.
The French champions would demand a fee in excess of €100m if Mbappe were to leave this summer, despite the fact that he would be entering the final year of his contract.
This would be a disaster for PSG. Neymar is edging closer to committing his future to the club, despite rumours linking him with a return for Barcelona, but the club will be desperate to hang on to both of their star attackers.
Mbappe is just 22 years old and is already viewed as one of the biggest stars in football. PSG probably don’t expect him to stay for the rest of his career, but they must’ve hoped he would extend his stay for a few more seasons.
It’s not an ideal transfer market for selling due to the financial impacts of the coronavirus pandemic but if the French forward were to leave, it would surely take a huge transfer fee.
