Mikautadze played himself into the spotlight with a strong second half of the season for FC Metz, attracting attention from various Ligue 1 clubs.

A transfer seems imminent as he was unable to prevent Metz’s relegation in the play-offs against Saint-Étienne. Prior to those ultimately fatal play-off matches, the French club had already exercised the purchase option on the attacker, who was on loan from Ajax.

Despite the disappointment of relegation, Mikautadze’s individual performances have been a silver lining for FC Metz. His ability to find the back of the net consistently, scoring twelve goals including a remarkable streak of six consecutive games with a goal, has not gone unnoticed. His contributions were pivotal, and his efforts have earned him the admiration and love of the Metz supporters, who affectionately call him "Roi Georges."

Given the interest from clubs like Olympique Lyon and AS Monaco, it seems unlikely that Mikautadze will be playing in Ligue 2 next season. According to L'Équipe, the 23-year-old forward had even reached an agreement with Monaco, but the Georgian Euro participant has denied this. "I have not yet made a decision about my future club, I will keep you informed," he said on Instagram, addressing the swirling rumors about his next move.

Mikautadze’s journey has been one of resilience and adaptation. Initially joining Metz on loan from Ajax, where he struggled to make an impact, he has since transformed his career in France. His tenure at Metz has seen him evolve into a key player, with the club recognizing his value by securing him on a permanent basis before the season’s end.

In an extensive video, Mikautadze did bid farewell to the Metz supporters, where he is known as Roi Georges. This speaks volumes about his status as a fan favorite. The heartfelt goodbye underscores the deep connection he has formed with the club and its fans. His emotional farewell video highlighted memorable moments and thanked the supporters for their unwavering backing, suggesting that regardless of his next destination, Metz will always hold a special place in his heart.

As for his future, while a return to Ajax has been ruled out, the possibilities within Ligue 1 remain open. Clubs like Olympique Lyon and AS Monaco offer attractive prospects for Mikautadze, both in terms of competitive play and development opportunities. His next move will be closely watched, as fans and analysts alike anticipate where this promising talent will continue to shine.

Mikautadze's decision will likely come down to where he feels he can best continue his development and make a significant impact. His statement on Instagram assures that he is taking his time to make the best possible choice for his career, promising to keep everyone updated. This period of uncertainty only adds to the intrigue surrounding his next move, as he stands on the brink of potentially joining one of the top clubs in France.
