Kylian Mbappe on Thursday expressed his desire to stay at Paris Saint-Germain next season, amid speculation surrounding a summer move.
A number of reports have stated that Mbappe sent a letter to PSG to announce that he would not extend his contract beyond the end of next season, putting him back into the limelight yet again in the transfer window.
The Ligue 1 champions are now reportedly ready to sell him to avoid losing him for free in 2024.
While appearing in front of the press this afternoon ahead of France's game against Gibraltar tomorrow, Mbappe was left frustrated as questions yet again shifted on his club future, with him eager to focus on international duty instead.
'I've already spoken about this, I've said that my objective is to stay at PSG, it's my only option right now, I'm ready to come back for pre-season,' he said.
Additionally, Mbappe denied reports that the letter had been sent recently, saying that it was 'not sent during the international break', but was sent 'before'.
'Honestly, I did not think I was going to offend anyone. I only sent a letter. I didn't know a letter could kill someone. It's just a letter. I don't care about the reactions,' Mbappe added.
'Nothing surprises me anymore', he said, expressing his annoyance towards the media.
Mbappe has been linked with a move away repeatedly over the past few years, with Real Madrid being the destination he has been rumoured most inclined to join. However, the Spanish side are hesitant about pursuing a move this summer, leaving the Frenchman with a limited number of feasible options.
Mbappe is coming off the back of yet another impressive season on a personal level, scoring 41 goals and providing 10 assists in 43 games in all competitions, his second-best goalscoring campaign, only beaten by his 2020/21 season.
France take on Gibraltar on Friday night, before hosting Greece at the Stade de France on Monday for their UEFA Euro 2024 qualifying campaign. As it stands, Mbappe looks like he will be a PSG player by the end of the break, and a possible move is nowhere near taking place.
