Mbappe will leave for Real Madrid after the end of the season

On Sunday, Paris Saint-Germain will face Toulouse in its first game since losing to Borussia Dortmund in the Champions League, marking Kylian Mbappe’s final match for the team at the Parc des Princes.

After losing 1-0 at home in the second leg of their semifinal match against Borussia Dortmund, PSG’s quest for elusive European glory will continue into the next year. This resulted in an unexpected 2-0 aggregate loss.

As a result, Mbappe will leave PSG after seven years without ever winning Europe’s premier club trophy, and he will not receive the send-off he had planned for in the Champions League final at Wembley on June 1.

Mbappe notified PSG in secret in February that he intended to leave when his current contract expired at the end of the season.

The 25-year-old has never officially stated as much, much less disclosed his future plans, yet it seems inevitable that he will end up at Real Madrid.

While PSG still have a chance to win a slew of domestic titles, Mbappe and his current team will aim to close the season on a strong note.

They have already won the Ligue 1 championship—their tenth in the previous twelve seasons—and will collect the trophy following their final home game of the season on Sunday against Toulouse, who is ranked in the middle of the pack.

Mbappe has notched 43 goals so far this year in all competitions, 26 of which have come in Ligue 1. He failed to score in either leg of the Dortmund match.

In the Champions Cup final, Mbappe will still aim to add to his club-record 255 goals for PSG and earn another trophy. In his seven years with his home team, Mbappe has already won six Ligue 1 crowns, three French Cups, and the now-defunct League Cup thrice.

Following Sunday’s match, PSG will play away games against relegation-threatened Metz and Nice to finish their league campaign, and then Mbappe will play his farewell game for the team in that Cup final.
