The PSG star wants to represent France in the 2024 Olympics in Paris.
According to Marca, the French superstar is set to demand a clause in his new contract which will allow him to participate in the Olympics.
However, there is a lot of uncertainty over his future, with his current deal at PSG expiring next summer. Real Madrid are keeping close tabs on his situation and want to sign him on a free transfer, having previously failed to do so in the last summer window.
Les Parisiens are also understandably working on Mbappe’s contract renewal as they cite him as a key player for the club’s future.
Mbappe’s mother, Fayza Lamari, spoke recently about his son’s desire to participate in the 2024 Olympics and insisted that there would be a clause in his new deal to facilitate it.
Fayza said: “That will be in his contract. They’ll then have to select him. The Olympic Games are in his home city and PSG aren’t against him competing in it.”
Mbappe was part of the Les Bleus team that lifted the World Cup in 2018 and the Nations League glory earlier this month.
Winning the Olympics Gold medal with the France national team will only enrich his legacy.
The 22-year-old also recently revealed that representing his country in the Olympics has been his dream all along.
Mbappe said (h/t EuroSport): “It was while watching London 2012 that I realised the importance of this global competition. The Games are the reference point for sport, the Grail for sportsmen and women.
“That’s when I said to myself that I want to be there too. I want to experience the Paris Games. It’s an inner feeling as if it is my destiny to participate in this huge celebration in my city, in my country – 100 years after the last competition in France.”
