Kylian Mbappe’s new PSG contract length raises question as Real Madrid links re-emerge

’s future risks becoming a major transfer saga yet again after his contract only runs until 2024 instead of 2025 as was originally thought, according to reports.

The French star signed a new jaw-dropping £650,000-a-week contract with the Parisian club in May, after prolonged questions surrounding his future dominated the headlines last season.

Upon signing the new deal, Mbappe, who snubbed in the process, announced he had signed a three-year-contract and proudly wore a shirt at the Parc des Princes, with ‘Mbappe 2025’ on the back, while possing with club president Nasser Al-Khelaifi.

However, according to L’Equipe, the contract Mbappe signed is actually only for two years, with the third year an optional extension at the hands of the French international.

This means that at the end of this season, the forward will enter the final 12 months of his deal, and PSG will again be in the position of deciding whether to try to extend his contract or sell him, to avoid losing him for free at the end of his contract.

This was the case in the summer of 2021 when Real Madrid had made their interest in Mbappe clear when they submitted a final bid of £154million for the Ligue 1 star, in an attempt to pry him away from Paris.

Though the club rejected the proposal, it was widely anticipated that the French star would join Carlo Ancelotti’s side a year later before he sensationally penned a new deal at PSG.
