According to the BBC, Mbappe announced earlier in May that he would depart PSG at the end of the just concluded 2023/24 season.

In a video published on his social media platforms confirming his departure, the 25-year-old said:

"I’ve always said that I would speak with you when the time comes," Mbappe said.
"It's my last year at Paris St-Germain. I will not extend and the adventure will come to an end in a few weeks," he continued.

Mbappe names only Italian club he can play for

The France international's announcement has since sparked speculation on his next destination.

While Real Madrid are understood to be the strong favourites to land his services, the former Monaco man has conceded that a switch to Italy is also probable.

When asked which club he would play for, the 2018 World Cup winner noted, per Fabrizio Romano:

“Italian football? You never know what happens. I was always saying: if I will go to Italy one day, I will go to Milan," he said.
“As a kid, I was big fan of AC Milan and I always watch Serie A, every Milan game. All my family, massive Milan fan," he added.

When Mbappe will announce future

In related news, Sports Brief also reported on Mbappe opening up about his football future ahead of his PSG departure.

With speculation still rife on his next club, the forward recently disclosed that he would announce his next destination at the right time.

Mbappe joined PSG in 2017 from Monaco for €180 million and has gone on to make more than 300 for the side, scoring 256 goals in the process.
