France star Kylian Mbappe has told Paris Saint-Germain in no uncertain terms that he will not be leaving the club this summer despite their interest in selling him ahead of the new season.
Mbappe is certain to leave Paris Saint Germain in the next 12 months after he refused to sign the optional extension in his contract at the Parc des Princes, leaving him a free agent next summer.
Understandably, Luis Enrique’s side are keen not to lose him for nothing, and have therefore put the 24-year-old up for sale, though he has already turned down a record offer from Saudi side Al-Hilal that would have seen him take home 700m euros in a single season.
There has been interest from the Premier League, though Chelsea have ruled out a move for the Frenchman, and Saudi Arabia remain desperate to add him to their list of coups this summer.
However, Mbappe will be going nowhere, with French outlet Le Parisien claiming that ‘his decision to remain at the club this season is final’, as he told PSG president Nasser Al-Khelaifi in an ‘animated’ face to face meeting on Wednesday.
Al-Khelaifi is thought to have told Mbappe that the only way in which he can rejoin the squad, from which he was omitted from for the pre-season tour of south east Asia, is by renewing his contract. However, the striker is certain that he will not be doing that, with PSG sure that he has already agreed a deal to join Real Madrid as a free agent next summer.
He has been part of the “untouchables” left behind, which also included the likes of Julian Draxler and Renato Sanches, while Luis Enrique has already bolstered his attack this summer with the additions of Goncalo Ramos and Ousmane Dembele.
