Mbappe snubs PSG as he rejects contract extension requests

Paris Saint Germain find themselves on two boats after French superstar Kylian Mbappe refused to trigger his contract extension clause. The player has been looking for a way out of the club with Real Madrid being his preferred destination. The Frenchman’s contract comes to an end next summer, which will allow Madrid to sign the player on a free without paying any transfer fees to PSG.

The French club has been trying to avoid this situation as they want to ensure that Mbappe renews his contract with the club. Following the player’s refusal, the club tried to offload him this summer but their massive demands threw off any potential suitors apart from Saudi Arabia. With the player now likely in his final season with the club, PSG are trying their utter best to get Mbappe to agree to a contract extension.
