Kylian Mbappe is willing to accept a role on the bench at Paris Saint-Germain in the 2023-24 season.
PSG wants to put Kylian Mbappe under pressure to determine his future.
Remember that the 24-year-old attacker declined to extend his contract with PSG, stating his intention to go for free in 2024. PSG intends to sell Mbappe this summer if he does not renew his contract, since the club does not want to lose the talent for free.
According to The Athletic, PSG intends to put Mbappe under pressure in a variety of ways to push him to make a choice regarding his future. The forward, in particular, can be shifted to the reserve provided his contractual status stays unchanged.
PSG believes that continuing Mbappe’s contract through 2025 with a potential sale in 2024 after the Summer Olympic Games in Paris will be the most profitable option.
Kylian Mbappe to SIT on BENCH the WHOLE SEASON?
Riolo told RMC Sport, “I can tell you something tonight. Mbappe will play for Paris Saint-Germain next season. Mbappe remains at PSG even if they see this through to the conclusion and bench him. He is ready to accept the current condition.”
“Any team can win without Mbappe,” he continued. However, Luis Enrique will be informed that Mbappe is in his squad but that he cannot play him. This is the situation we are now in.
Mbappe has developed as a global sensation at PSG, scoring 212 goals and giving 98 assists in 260 matches. Benching him would definitely cause a great uproar, but it appears that the 24-year-old is willing to accept the terms in order to join Real Madrid on a free transfer next summer.
Before the 2023-24 season begins, PSG will play a series of pre-season friendlies against teams such as Le Havre and Al-Nassr, although it is unclear whether Mbappe will feature in any of them.
