After the entire terms of Kylian Mbappe’s Paris Saint-Germain contract became public, Real Madrid’s pursuit of the player is expected to begin again next summer.
The 23-year-old France star signed a new, three-year contract for £650,000 a week, the French champions revealed in May.
When he formally signed the contract, Mbappe was wearing a PSG shirt with the year 2025 on the back, which seemed to hold him down until then. But it has since been revealed that the first term of the contract is only two seasons, or till 2024.
The option to extend the contract into a third season is therefore left up to Mbappe, not the club.
If he gives the indication that he won’t sign an extension, PSG will have to try to sell him next summer, or else their striker, who is valued at more than £150 million, may leave for nothing a year from now at the expense of the French powerhouse.
Per rumors, Kylian Mbappe signed the new contract to ensure he would continue playing for the club controlled by Qatar when he competes in the World Cup this winter in the Gulf nation.
