Kylian Mbappe Announces Departure from Paris St-Germain

France forward Kylian Mbappe has made headlines with his recent announcement of leaving Paris St-Germain at the end of the current season. In a heartfelt video shared across his social media platforms, the 25-year-old confirmed his departure from the club, signaling the end of an era for PSG fans worldwide.

“I’ve always said that I would speak with you when the time comes,” Mbappe stated in the video. “It’s my last year at Paris St-Germain. I will not extend, and the adventure will come to an end in a few weeks.”

Mbappe’s decision comes as his contract with PSG is set to expire in June. Reports have been circulating since February that the French striker has already reached an agreement to join Real Madrid in the upcoming summer transfer window, adding fuel to the speculation surrounding his future.

With 255 goals to his name, Mbappe holds the record as PSG’s all-time leading scorer. Fans will have the opportunity to bid farewell to the prolific striker as he plays his final home game at the Parc des Princes against Toulouse in Ligue 1 on Sunday. Following this, PSG will face away fixtures at Nice and Metz before competing in the French Cup final against Lyon at the Stade Pierre-Mauroy in Lille.

Reflecting on his time at PSG, Mbappe expressed gratitude for the opportunity to represent one of the world’s top clubs and grow as a player alongside renowned teammates. “It allowed me to arrive here, to have my first experience in a club with a lot of pressure, to grow as a player of course, by being alongside some of the best in history, some of the greatest champions,” Mbappe shared.

Despite the emotional nature of his decision, Mbappe sees it as a necessary step towards a new challenge after spending seven years with PSG since his move from Monaco in 2017. His departure marks the end of an illustrious chapter for both Mbappe and PSG, leaving fans eagerly anticipating his next chapter with Real Madrid.
