Kylian Mbappe wants to stay at Paris St-Germain for now but says he will not extend his contract beyond 2024.
The 24-year-old France forward’s deal expires after next season, with the option of another year.
On Tuesday he tweeted he “will continue” at PSG, but a letter from his camp said next season would be his last at the club.
Mbappe says PSG were first told on 15 July, 2022 of his decision to reject the extension.
Official correspondence has followed to that effect this week, with Mbappe saying the “only aim of the letter was to confirm what had already been spoken about”.
However, PSG are prepared to sell their record goal scorer this summer rather than risk losing him for free in a year’s time.
Mbappe said reports he wants to join Real Madrid this summer were “lies”.
His camp told the AFP news agency on Tuesday the possibility of extending his contract “has not been discussed since [he informed PSG last year] over the course of the year, except a fortnight ago to announce the sending of the letter”.
“No potential contract extension has been mentioned,” they added.
