Amid the transfer season frenzy regarding the future of Kylian Mbappé, the saga could be over. Real Madrid might throw in the towel for a transfer this summer if the information from Spain is accurate.
The Athletic’s Mario Cortegana reported on Wednesday that Real Madrid remains skeptical about the French superstar’s potential transfer. Furthermore, the La Liga side believes it’s highly likely that Mbappé will play this 2023-24 season at Paris Saint-Germain.

Mbappé has one more year on a contract. Reports suggest PSG notified him of a potential sale this summer if the 24-year-old doesn’t sign a new contract.
Speculation surrounding a potential move for Mbappé has dominated headlines for weeks. The 2018 FIFA World Cup winner opted not to trigger the option to extend his contract until 2025. As a result, the Real Madrid rumors began to crank up again.
The PSG star has expressed his desire to honor the last year of his contract. If the Spanish giants are out of the mix, don’t expect another club like Liverpool to swoop in.
