Kylian Mbappe, PSG's all-time leading goalscorer, has informed the club of his intentions not to renew his contract, which currently has 12 months remaining.

While PSG aims to sell the 24-year-old forward now to secure a transfer fee, Mbappe intends to honor his contract and remain with the club until its conclusion.

Having originally joined PSG from Monaco in 2017 for a staggering fee of £165.7m, Mbappe's future remains a topic of significant interest and contention.

After Mbappe was left out of the PSG squad going to Japan and South Korea, a National Union of Professional Footballers statement said: "These players must enjoy the same working conditions as the rest of the professional workforce.

"The UNFP feels it would be useful to remind managers that putting pressure on an employee - via the deterioration of their working conditions, for example - to force them to leave or accept what the employer wants constitutes moral harassment, which French law firmly condemns.

"The UNFP reserves the right to take civil and criminal action against any club that behaves in this way."

For the last six years Mbappe has played a crucial role in the PSG squad

For six years, Mbappe has been a crucial player for PSG, impressively scoring 212 goals in 260 games and claiming the Ligue 1 Golden Boot title for the past five seasons.

His contributions were instrumental in France's victory in the 2018 World Cup, and he even scored a remarkable hat-trick during the 2022 final, despite their defeat against Argentina.

The expectation was that Mbappe would make a free transfer to Real Madrid when his contract expired in 2022, but he surprised many by opting for a new two-year deal with PSG instead.

However, now he has made it clear that he won't extend his contract further, leading PSG to conclude that he can no longer remain part of their playing group.

Chairman Nasser Al-Khelaifi has firmly stated that allowing Mbappe to leave for free in 2024 is "impossible."

During the summer, the Ligue 1 champions saw former Barcelona manager Luis Enrique take over as the new head coach, succeeding Christophe Galtier.
