Mbappe's final PSG decision revealed?

Ligue 1

Kylian Mbappe has reportedly returned to Paris Saint-Germain with "no intention" of renewing his contract.  

The 22-year-old has returned to PSG following an extended break after a long 2020/21 campaign, but according to Marca, he has made it clear to the French side's hierarchy that he has no intention of staying at the club after his contract expires in June 2022. 

Manager Mauricio Pochettino was looking forward to seeing the attacker get his pre-season preparations underway, but it appears the Argentine tactician may have a problem as one of his star players could now potentially be sold. 

It is also claimed, though, that Mbappe is happy to spend the upcoming season at the Parc des Princes, although he now seemingly sees that campaign as his last in France.

It is reportedly the 2018 FIFA World Cup winner's intention to enjoy one last successful year with the club, one that he feels grateful to for the way they have treated him since 2017, and then leave as a free agent in July 2022.  

The Ligue 1 side could now be in a difficult situation, however, after it was reported that they were planning to sell as many as nine players in order to offer Mbappe a bumper new contract.

Sporting director Leonardo and PSG chairman Nasser Al-Khelaifi may now be forced into selling the player in this window in order to recoup some of the €145 million (R2.5 billion) they spent to sign the former AS Monaco striker four years ago. 

Real Madrid and Liverpool are believed to the frontrunners to secure the star's signature if he does become available.
