Kylian Mbappe rules out Paris Saint-Germain transfer exit this summer

Kylian Mbappe post that led to Manchester United fans comments

Kylian Mbappe, the attacker for Paris Saint-Germain (PSG), has declared that he would remain with the French champions for the 2023-24 season, putting an end to doubts about his future.

Last summer, the 24-year-old astonished the European landscape by agreeing to a new Parisiens deal, renewing through 2024 with the potential of an additional year and rejecting interest from Real Madrid.

However, only a few months after signing their franchise player to a new contract, PSG were shocked to learn that he had changed his mind and wanted to transfer elsewhere.

PSG was accused of breaking commitments made to Mbappe when he signed the contract, leaving the France international feeling “betrayed” and evaluating his alternatives for leaving.

Real Madrid are still thought to be interested in the former Monaco starlet, but Los Blancos are expected to wait until 2024 to formally renew their pursuit ahead of Karim Benzema’s projected new contract.

Meanwhile, Manchester United have been linked with a bid for Mbappe, whom Sheikh Jassim bin Hamad Al Thani is said to desire to transfer to Old Trafford if he completes a takeover this summer.

Mbappe, though, ruled out a summer transfer when addressing to the media at the Ligue 1 end-of-season awards event on Sunday, when he was named Player of the Year for the fourth time.

After previously hinting at a stay in order to assist PSG eventually win the Champions League, the striker answered.

Mbappe looks to continue his journey with Paris Saint-Germain

Mbappe’s future beyond the summer of 2024, however, remains uncertain, since the France international has yet to exercise his contract option to stay until 2025.

As a result, PSG may lose Mbappe on a free transfer at the conclusion of next season, five years after signing him permanently in a €180 million (£156.3 million) deal from Monaco.

Mbappe has scored 211 goals in 259 games for Les Parisiens since signing on loan in the summer of 2017, beating Edinson Cavani’s previous record of 200 in March’s 4-2 win over Nantes.

After previously hinting at a stay in order to assist PSG eventually win the Champions League, the striker answered:

“There’s no more links about my future? I’m very happy here at PSG and with my choice to be part of this project. I will be here at PSG next season,”

The World Cup winner has also set up 98 goals for Les Parisiens, including the game-winning goal against Strasbourg on Saturday, where he set up Lionel Messi to open the scoring.

PSG’s point guaranteed the capital club’s 11th Ligue 1 title, five of which Mbappe has won, and the striker also leads the Ligue 1 goalscoring charts coming into the final matchday.

Mbappe has scored 28 goals in 33 Premier League games this season, one more than Lyon’s Alexandre Lacazette, and has 40 goals and 10 assists from 42 appearances in all competitions this season.
