Prior to a potential move to Real Madrid, Kylian Mbappe has formally confirmed his departure from Paris Saint-Germain.

Since Mbappe’s contract is set to expire in the summer, there has been much speculation regarding his future.

Before Mbappe took to X a few days before Paris Saint-Germain’s loss to Borussia Dortmund in the Champions League semifinal, there had been no formal statement regarding his circumstances.

After seven years, he confirmed that he will be taking on a new challenge in an emotional farewell address.

Mbappe is believed to have earned a stunning £171 million per year at PSG, and while certain specifics are still to be worked out. Sky Sports reports that he will take a wage cut at Real.

“The money that Real Madrid would have been paying as a transfer fee, they are basically going to be paying to the player instead,” Sky Sports’ Kaveh Solhekol said.

“He will be getting a massive signing-on fee – there are reports in Spain that it could be over £100m.”

Mbappe will make his farewell appearance at the Parc des Princes on Sunday, saying an emotional goodbye to the PSG fans.

“It’s a lot of emotions, many years where I had the chance and the great honour to be a member of the biggest French club, one of the best in the world,” he said in his message.

“It allowed me to arrive here, to have my first experience in a club with a lot of pressure, to grow as a player of course, by being alongside some of the best in history, some of the greatest champions.

“It’s hard and I never thought it would be this difficult to announce that. But I think I needed this, a new challenge, after seven years.”

Mbappe established a record by scoring 255 goals in 306 appearances for PSG after signing from Monaco, and he has since won six Ligue One titles.

As PSG plays Lyon in the French Cup final, he still has a chance to walk away with one last prize.
