Mbappe will not trigger a one-year extension option which opens the door for the 24-year-old’s likely exit during the summer’s transfer window, L’Equipe reported.
Mbappe was in a similar situation last year when he was linked to a Real Madrid move, only to sign a contract extension with PSG.
PSG will not entertain allowing their prize asset to leave for free when his existing deal runs out.
Which raises the possibility of the World Cup runner-up switching clubs if talks with the PSG hierarchy break down between now and the end of July.
Mbappe’s letter comes hot on the heels of Lionel Messi‘s departure to Inter Miami.
It came as little surprise as reports had suggested he would not exercise an option to stay until 2025.
At an awards ceremony last month where he was voted the Ligue 1 player of the season for the fourth successive time after helping Paris Saint-Germain win a record 11th French title he was asked about his future.
“I will be here again next season” was his reply.
