Paris St-Germain have stated that Kylian Mbappe must sign a new contract if he wants to play for the Ligue 1 champions this season.
Speaking at the news conference to introduce new manager Luis Enrique, club president Nasser Al-Khelaifi said:
Our position is very clear,” said Al-Khelaifi.
“If Kylian Mbappe wants to stay – we want him to stay – he needs to sign a new contract.
“We cannot let the best player in the world right now leave for free. That is impossible.”
Mbappe, 24, has told PSG that he will not extend his contract with them beyond 2024. The France forward has also indicated that PSG were told last year he would not extend contract.
Mbappe has the option of a further year when his deal expires after the 2023/24 season but has stated that although he plans to stay with the French champions for the 2023-24 campaign, he does not intend to activate the contract extension. If this scenario played out, he would be able to leave for free next summer.
