Kylian Mbappe on Thursday said staying at Paris Saint-Germain was his “only option for now”.
Mbappe’s statement is coming after he had revealed that he would not be extending his contract beyond 2024.
Speaking to La Gazzetta dello Sport, Mbappe did not hold back whilst clarifying his position.
He said, “I’ve already answered this question, I said that my goal was to carry on at the club, to stay at PSG, it’s my only option for now.”
Mbappe spoke at a news conference ahead of Friday’s Euro 2024 qualifier against Gibraltar in Portugal.
Recall that the center forward had spoken exclusively to the Italian daily La Gazzetta dello Sport after informing PSG that he will not renew his contract.
He also responded on his social media to a report in Le Parisien claiming that he wanted to go to Real Madrid this summer: “Lies. Bigger and bigger. I have already said that I will continue next season at PSG where I am very happy”, he said.
He said, “I didn’t say I wanted to be sold to Real Madrid or that I wanted to leave, only that I won’t activate the option of the extra year (until 2025). With PSG there has never been talk of a renewal and I am happy to continue for another year,” Mbappe said.
