With many reports of Kylian Mbappe not wanting to extend his contract at PSG beyond the 2024 season, rumours have been flying around as to where the French international could land next summer. Lets see the possible options.

Stay at PSG


With all these possibilities as to where Mbappe could go, the Frenchman could still stay in France at PSG. Rumours last year were indicating that Mbappe could have gone to Real Madrid. However, he would sign a new contract with the French champions.


It is reported - by Sky Sports reported Kaveh Solhekol - that if Mbappe does stay at the club, then he will receive a €60 million loyalty bonus if he stays with the club by the 1st August.


Currently, the PSG squad are on a pre-season tour in Japan and South Korea. However, Mbappe has not travelled with Luis Enrique's team as unsettlement with agreeing a new contract has been a key factor.


PSG feel as though they have been betrayed by Mbappe. If the club does not sell the Frenchman this summer, then if the striker doesn't sign a new contract, he will leave the club for free next summer.


Heading to Saudi Arabia?


Lots of controversy has occurred recently with Saudi Arabian teams buying top players from Europe. The teams have been able to give players expensive offers, tempting some of the best players in the world to move over to Asia.


It all started with Cristiano Ronaldo moving to Al Nassr last January. Since then many top players have joined the Saudi Arabian Pro League, especially this summer.


Players such as Ngolo Kante, Sergej Milinkovic-Savic, Riyad Mahrez, Roberto Firmino, Allan Saint Maximin and many more have already made the move to Asia.


As for Mbappe, Al Hilal has offered a record-breaking £260 million bid, which PSG has already accepted. The Saudi team has also offered a one-year contract to the Frenchman worth €700 million.


However, it has been reported that Mbappe is not interested in a move to Saudi Arabia, despite their impressive offer, as the Frenchman looks to continue playing at the highest level in Europe.


Finally go to Real Madrid?


Real Madrid has been a reported destination for Mbappe for many years now. Before, the Frenchman signed a contract at PSG, joining the Galacticos was a serious possibility.


Mbappe, himself, has already expressed his desire of playing for Real Madrid at some point in his career, making this move inevitable in the future.


However, do Real Madrid try to pay for the striker this summer or wait to get him on a free next summer? The Spanish giant claim that they can afford Mbappe, despite spending over £100 million on Jude Bellingham already this summer.


A move to the Premier League?


The Premier League is regarded as the toughest league in the world to many, with it being the most physically demanding and not having as much time on the ball.


In the past, Liverpool had been the most likely destination for Mbappe if he was to go to the Premier League.


However, the clubs most interested at the moment are two London clubs in Chelsea and Tottenham. Despite this, a move to the Premier League does not seem to be likely at this current stage?


Where do you think Mbappe will end up either this summer or the year after?
