Real Madrid – La Liga Can negotiate in 2022 if he doesn’t renew
Time keeps moving and Kylian Mbappe is now just one year removed from being free to negotiate with whichever club he likes.
His contract at Paris Saint-Germain runs until June of 2022, meaning that he would be free to speak to other clubs from January 1, 2022, if he doesn’t renew that deal.
Real Madrid have long been linked with him and the forward even had an offer from Los Blancos at the time he left Monaco. Although he went to PSG, Mbappe would be able to start talking about a transfer to Real Madrid in 365 days’ time.
Back in 2017, he didn’t want to leave Monaco to go and sit on the bench at Real Madrid. Now, though, he would be arriving at the Estadio Santiago Bernabeu as one of the biggest stars.
Even though Leonardo is optimistic about Mbappe staying in the French capital, it’s still not clear what his plans are. If he was really determined to stay, he may have renewed by now.
The following months will be key. PSG know that they could even be forced to sell Mbappe in the summer if he decides he won’t renew and if they want to bring in some transfer fee for him rather than lose him for free in 2022.
Still just 22, Mbappe is currently in his fourth season at PSG. While he has won Ligue 1 time and time again, the Champions League is the ultimate goal and that hasn’t been achieved yet, even if they did reach last season’s final.
If he does put pen to paper on a new deal, then Real Madrid would have to forget about his signing for the next three of four years.
It’s a huge decision and one that will be a talking point throughout 2021.
