Nasser Al-Khelaifi has insisted that PSG star Kylian Mbappé will not leave the club on a free transfer.

The France international has a deal at the Parc des Princes until the summer of 2024 but last month, widespread reports claimed that he informed the club that he does not intend to trigger his option to extend until 2025.

And the PSG president has suggested that Mbappé’s stance could mean that they are forced to sell him during the current window.

“Our position is strong. Mbappé will not leave for free. That’s impossible. The best player in the world leaving for free is not happening,” he said at new coach Luis Enrique’s unveiling.

“Kylian himself has also said that he will not leave for free so if he has changed his mind, that is not my fault.

“But I repeat: he will not leave for free. If he wants to stay, he must renew.”

And in an interview afterwards with Le Parisien, he doubled down on his sentiment by warning the player that the clock is now ticking for him to make a decision.

“Kylian must make up his mind within a week or two at the most,” he added. “If he doesn’t sign a new contract then the door is open.

“I was completely shocked when I heard he wants to leave for free. He’s a gentleman and a great person so to weaken the biggest club in his country, that’s not like him. I was disappointed.”

Mbappé has been closely linked with a move to Real Madrid over the course of the last 18 months.
