Kylian Mbappe ‘showing NO desire to extend PSG deal’ beyond 2022… and French striker ‘could seal big-money switch to Real Madrid or Liverpool NEXT summer’
- Kylian Mbappe is yet to agree to fresh terms on a long-term deal with PSG
- The 21-year-old’s current contract in Paris is due to reach its expiry in June 2022
- Reports in Paris say the club may have to cash in on him as early as next summer
- Liverpool and Real Madrid are both seen as viable landing spots next for Mbappe
Paris Saint-Germain face the prospect of having to cash in on star striker Kylian Mbappe next summer with the 21-year-old ‘showing no fierce desire’ to extend his contract.
Mbappe has been a revelation since joining PSG from Monaco in 2018 and is wanted by every elite club across Europe.
He remains under contract at the Parc des Princes until June 2022 but Le Parisien report a move to Liverpool or Real Madrid could happen as early as next summer with no progress made on tying Mbappe to a new-and-improved deal.
