Kylian Mbappe has been put up for sale by French champions Paris Saint-Germain after refusing to sign a new long-term deal with the club.
PSG president Nasser Al-Khelaifi reportedly feels betrayed by the World Cup superstar after believing to have verbally agreed with the 24-year-old that he would extend his current deal- which is set to expire next summer.
Kylian Mbappe left out of pre-season tour
As reported by Fabrizio Romano, Mbappe has been left out of the Parisians squad for their pre-season tour of Japan as they start to look for potential suitors for their most prized asset this summer in the fear they will lose him for nothing in 2024.

Mbappe has not communicated with Al-Khelaifi his true desires but rumors suggest that PSG are convinced the French forward has already agreed terms with Real Madrid next summer on a free transfer.
The Parisians are furious that Mbappe has not responded to the club after being given a deadline of July 15 to inform them if he wanted to stay or not. After being hamstrung in the past by the demands of player power, PSG are determined not to fall into the same trap again and be paralyzed by just one player again.
Saudi Arabian side Al Hilal and Premier League giants Chelsea are showing interest in Mbappe but it seems clear that the World Cup winner has his heart set on a move to Real Madrid.
