France striker Kylian Mbappe has confirmed he will leave Paris Saint-Germain at the end of the 2023-24 season.

Mbappe took to his social media platforms to share the news with his fans via a video announcement.

While Mbappe did not disclose his next destination in the video, It’s been reported that he will join Real Madrid in the summer transfer window.

However, an official announcement from both Mbappe and Real Madrid is not expected until after the 2024 Champions League final, which is scheduled for June 1.

This timing is strategic, as any announcement beforehand could potentially serve as a distraction ahead of such a crucial match.

PSG are set to face Toulouse at the Parc des Princes on Sunday, marking Kylian Mbappe’s final home game for the club.

His farewell match is scheduled to be the French Cup final against Lyon on May 15.

Mbappe said in a video: “Hi everyone, it’s Kylian. I wanted to speak to you, I’ve always said that I would speak with you when the time comes and so I wanted to announce to you all that it’s my last year at Paris Saint-Germain.

“I will not extend and the adventure will come to an end in a few weeks.

“I will play my last game at the Parc des Princes on Sunday.

“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 which 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, to meet a lot of people, to grow as a man as well with all the glory and the mistakes I’ve made.”
