Kylian Mbappé, the star forward of Paris Saint-Germain (PSG) and the French national team, has been the subject of intense speculation about his future in recent weeks. The 24-year-old, who has scored 212 goals in 249 appearances for PSG, has refused to sign a contract extension with the club as he is keen on joining Real Madrid next summer on a free transfer. Amid the transfer saga, the club was seen taking down his photo from the poster on their home stadium, the Parc Des Princes.
However, PSG may have also given a subtle hint that they are preparing for life without Mbappé, as they have apparently removed his poster from outside their stadium, the Parc des Princes. The Parisian giants have also removed the 24-year-old superstar from their new BrilliantCrypto sponsorship poster.
Apart from the poster, Mbappe's jerseys are also unavailable at the PSG store in Paris hinting at his potential departure. The videos of the unavailability of Mbappe's jerseys and the removal of his posters from the stadium have gone viral on social media.

Some fans have interpreted this move as a sign that PSG have accepted Mbappé's departure and are trying to erase his presence from the club. Others have suggested that PSG are simply replacing the poster with a new one that includes their other new signings. However, there has been no official confirmation or explanation from PSG regarding this decision.
Mbappé's future remains uncertain, as the transfer window closes on August 31 and PSG are determined to sell him this season rather than lose him for free next summer. Mbappé has not spoken publicly about his situation, but he has been training outside of the PSG main squad in recent weeks.
