He merely confirmed to the club that he was not activating his additional year."

"The management of the club in charge of its extension (signed on May 21, 2022) was informed of its decision on July 15, 2022. The sole purpose of the email was to confirm what had already been orally clarified previously."

"Mbappe and his entourage claim they have not discussed this point with the club again during the year, except 15 days ago to announce the sending of the letter. Nor has any possible new extension been mentioned."

"Finally, Mbappe and his entourage regret that the receipt of this letter has been transmitted to the media. These exchanges are made public with the sole aim of damaging his image and the relations with the club."
