Goodbye PSG: Mbappe sets to leave after Champions League exit


Kylian Mbappe is gearing up to play his final match for Paris Saint-Germain at the Parc des Princes against Toulouse on Sunday, following their recent elimination from the Champions League.

PSG’s quest for European glory will extend into another season after their surprise semi-final exit at the hands of Borussia Dortmund, with a 1-0 loss in the second leg sealing a 2-0 aggregate defeat.

This means that Mbappe will not have the chance to bid adieu to the club in the Champions League final as he had hoped, and he will conclude his seven-year stint at PSG without securing Europe’s top club competition.

Although Mbappe had privately informed PSG of his decision to depart when his contract expires at the end of the current campaign, the 25-year-old has not publicly disclosed his next destination, although signs point to a move to Real Madrid.

In the meantime, Mbappe and PSG aim to finish the season on a high note, with the team still in contention for a clean sweep of domestic honors.

Having already clinched the Ligue 1 title, securing their 10th in the last 12 seasons, PSG will be presented with the trophy after Sunday’s match against Toulouse – their final home game of the season.

Following that, PSG will face Lyon in the French Cup final in Lille on May 25, seeking to add another trophy to their collection.

“Despite the disappointment, there are still objectives ahead, including the French Cup final. We will keep working towards that,” Mbappe expressed to reporters after the Dortmund defeat.

Although Mbappe failed to score in the recent Champions League tie, he has netted an impressive 43 goals in all competitions this season, with 26 coming in Ligue 1.

With hopes to increase his club-record goal tally of 255 goals for PSG, Mbappe will strive to seize another medal in the upcoming Cup final, having already claimed six Ligue 1 titles and other domestic honors during his tenure with his hometown team.

After Sunday’s match, PSG will conclude their league fixtures with away games at Nice and relegation-threatened Metz, before Mbappe finishes his PSG career in the Cup final.
