PARIS SAINT-GERMAIN have handed Kylian Mbappe an ultimatum – sign a new contract or leave this summer.
Mbappe, 24, has entered the final year of his contract with the Ligue 1 champions and he is yet to agree terms for an extension.

The striker reportedly sent a letter to club officials last month, informing them that he did not want to trigger the one-year extension that was written into his contract last summer.
However, he also insisted that he did not want to be sold this summer.
As things stand, he could leave the Parc des Princes as a free agent next July.
But PSG chiefs are completely opposed to that idea.
They sent a three-page letter to Mbappe earlier this month, giving him a deadline of July 31 to make a decision about his future.
Club president Nasser Al-Khelaifi has told the striker that he must pen a new deal or else he will have to be sold this summer.
PSG have grown increasingly frustrated over the situation in recent weeks, with officials blasting Mbappe for causing “enormous harm” to the club.
And according to The Athletic, they have not ruled out the possibility of benching him next season if he does not sign a new deal or leave.
Real Madrid are interested in signing the Frenchman, but they are waiting for developments from his camp.
The La Liga giants would ideally like to sign him on a free transfer next summer following the £115million arrival of Jude Bellingham.
Mbappe joined PSG in a £166m transfer from Monaco in 2017 and has since scored 212 goals in 260 appearances.
