Kylian Leaves!!

French superstar attacker Kylian Mbappe has confirmed his impending exit from Paris Saint-Germain at the end of this season. The pacy Frenchman, who joined PSG from Monaco in 2017, initially on loan, and then permanently for $186m in 2018, revealed for the first time that he will be leaving the French club in June.

The 25-year-old made the official announcement of his departure on Friday evening, May 10, following earlier reports in February. 

In a video posted by the player and renowned Italian journalist Fabrizio Romano on their X pages, Mbappe publicly announced his exit stating: "I wanted to speak to you all. I have always said that I would address you when the time comes, and so I want to inform you that this will be my last year at Paris Saint-Germain."

"I will not be extending my contract, and my time with the club will come to an end in a few weeks."

His time in Paris has been filled with success, including multiple Ligue 1 titles and a Champions League final appearance, but now Mbappe is ready for a new challenge. 

His announcement video has sent shockwaves through the football world, as he hinted at a potential move to Real Madrid. Los Blancos’ long-standing interest in Mbappe is no secret, and they are reportedly willing to make him the highest-paid player in their history. 

With his current contract expiring this summer coupled with the announcement to leave PSG, the stage is set for a blockbuster move that could reshape the football landscape.

Despite needing to take a pay cut to join the Spanish giants as per Romano, Mbappe seems eager to make the move, as evidenced by his emotional announcement. To check out the video of Mbappe's announcement, please click here.
