Kylian Mbappé declares that at the end of the season, he is leaving PSG

Kylian Mbappe said on Friday that he would quit Paris Saint Germain and terminate his 'journey' in a few weeks in a video on social media site X.

Mbappé will play his final match at the Parc des Princes on Sunday against Toulouse after deciding not to extend his contract.

“I have always known, but I think I needed this, a new challenge after seven years,” Mbappé said. “It’s difficult and of course, there are some people I want to thank above all, these are the fans. I know I am not the most demonstrative player. I haven’t always lived up to the love you all gave me for seven years but I never want to cheat. Always wanted to be effective.

“PSG is a club that never leaves anyone indifferent. Love it or hate it. I made the choice of loving it and I did for seven years with ups and downs of course but I do not regret, at any moment, signing with this prestigious club. It’s a club that I will keep in my memory my entire life.”

There has been extensive media speculation that Mbappe will join Real Madrid.

In 2017, the 2018 World Cup winner joined PSG at 17 from AS Monaco, where he has become the club's all-time leading scorer and guided the French side to six league titles, including this season.
