French club Paris Saint-Germain have taken the decision to exclude striker Kylian Mbappe from their Asian tour, which starts today, Saturday, and will last until August 3 next year in preparation for the new 2023-2024 season.
The decision to exclude Mbappe from the French team’s Asian tour was made to force him to extend his contract, which expires in June 2024, or leave during the current summer Mercato.
But Mbappe plans to stay at Princes Garden until his contract expires in the summer of 2024 to receive a loyalty bonus from Paris Saint-Germain and then go to Real Madrid for free, where he too will receive a massive signing bonus.
However, Qatari Nasser Al-Khelaifi, president of Paris Saint-Germain, has given his striker Clian Mbappe a final position before early next August, either by renewing his contract or leaving the club this summer.
According to press reports, this summer Chelsea entered the race for Kylian Mbappe.
And Fabrice Hawkins, a journalist for Radio Monte Carlo, said during statements covered by French website Get Football News France that the London club is interested in including Mbappe this summer and is looking into his chances of settling a deal.
He added: “Chelsea have not yet made any official offers… and another English club is also interested in signing Mbappe.”
There is a belief among the Paris Saint-Germain administration that Mbappe has agreed with Real Madrid to move to the Santiago Bernabéu on a free transfer when his contract expires next summer.
