Qatari-Owned PSG May Face Financial Trouble If Mbappe Exists For Free: Reports

The turmoil surrounding Mbappe’s contract has caused tension both on and off the ground after the footballer called PSG a “divisive club.”

According to a report by The Athletic, Paris Saint-Germain will suffer financially if Kylian Mbappe leaves on a free transfer next season

If the 24-year-old extends his contract, the club could suffer major financial repercussions, according to reports. According to The Athletic, Mbappe’s choice would have a significant effect on the Financial Fair Play (FFP), causing other PSG players to be sold.

A £150 million black hole that is unaccounted for forces the Parisians to sell players and make other personnel adjustments, according to the article. More significantly, PSG’s pursuit of Bernardo Silva from Manchester City is on hold while the Mpabbe contract situation is resolved.

There have been meetings between players, Mbappe, and PSG president Nasser Al-Khelaifi as a result of the uncertainty surrounding the striker’s contract.

Sky Sports reports that Al-Khelaifi would address the entire team this week to emphasise the importance of PSG as an institution amid teammate tensions.

Mbappe has been given until July 31 to make a commitment to continue with the club through at least the summer of 2025; if he fails to do so, he will be sold to the top team the following month.

PSG and Mbappe are aware that they cannot compel the footballer to sign a contract extension or to leave this summer.
