Real Madrid-bound Mbappe said in March that he was ready to play at the Paris 24 Olympic Games for France.

Since it is not on FIFA’s calendar, clubs are not obliged to release their players and Madrid has blocked him from playing for France.

The 25-year-old bona fide forward on Sunday night told the press that he will not take part in the Paris 24 Olympics Games.

“My club’s position was very clear, so from that moment on, I think I (knew) I won’t be taking part in the Games,” Mbappe told reporters ahead of Monday’s Group D match against Austria at Euro 2024.

“That’s just the way it is, and I understand that too. I’m joining a new team in September, so it’s not the best way to start an adventure.

“I’m going to wish this French team all the best. I’m going to watch every game. I hope they’ll win the gold medal.”

Men’s football at the Olympic Games in Paris starts 10 days after Euro 2024.
