Kylian Mbappe throws PSG future into doubt – so where could he go next?

Kylian Mbappe has thrown his future into doubt by continuing to resist signing a new deal at Paris Saint-Germain. In fact, the chances of the superstar forward now staying at PSG are rated only 50/50 with Mbappe having just 15 months left on his current contract. PSG have been trying to tie the 22 year-old down to a new deal for more than a year but, unlike with Neymar who is also out of contract in June 2022, talks have not progressed. Haaland to Mbappe: Transfer sagas which will dominate summer 2021 It has reached a stage where there is genuine concern that Mbappe wants to leave PSG this summer. In January, the World Cup winner said he was “thinking very hard” about his future and, it is understood, the uncertainty brought about by the Covid pandemic has meant that continues to be the case. If Mbappe was made available for transfer there would be an extraordinary scramble to try to sign him by Europe’s leading clubs at a time when the focus has been on another brilliant young attacker, Erling Haaland. PSG remain hopeful Mbappe will eventually decide to stay but are currently far more optimistic that they will be able to soon announce a long-term contract with Neymar, who has recently turned 29 and would therefore probably see out the remainder of his career in Paris. There is no doubt that, two summers ago and urged by Lionel Messi, Neymar agitated for a return to Barcelona and at that time PSG were torn given the worries over his contribution to the team and whether he was giving enough. Those concerns evaporated in the run to the Champions League Final last season and while this has been a difficult campaign, PSG believe the Brazilian remains committed to the cause and has emerged as a leader of the team.
