Mbappé doesn't want PSG renewal
According to L'Equipe, the striker has already informed several members of the Parisian squad of his desire not to extend his contract, although there is a 'but'.
The Kylian Mbappé renewal soap opera may have just seen an important episode take place. According to French newspaper L'Equipe, the French international has already told Paris Saint-Germain that he does not want to renew his contract, which would mean the club runs the risk of losing him as a free agent next summer.
Mbappé says ‘non’ to PSG with Real Madrid in the wings
The report states, however, that Mbappé is still looking to complete the remaining year of his contract in the French capital and then leave in 2022 for what would be a bumper deal. This flies in the face of the club’s plans, already having made signings in an attempt to convince the forward that there is a winning project in progress as they look to win their first Champions League.

L’Equipe also makes a point of mentioning Real Madrid's interest in the striker, something well known to anyone with even a passing interest in his career prospects. Several weeks ago, Los Blancos asked about Mbappé's situation in the midst of negotiations for another player whose name they are not revealing.
PSG's response was clear: the player is not for sale, although the risk right now of losing him for free next season could force Nasser Al-Khelaïfi to sell him through gritted teeth.
Neymar and Mbappé obsession
Negotiations for Mbappé's renewal have been stalled for several months, to the point that Al-Khelaïfi has had to mediate in the talks to try to convince the former Monaco player that his future remains in Paris. His obsession has been to keep his two shining stars, Neymar (who has already signed on the dotted line) and the younger member of that frontline before the World Cup in Qatar, and he will do everything possible to keep him.
That said, PSG known that with the contact situation the way it is, the striker has the final say.
