It’s a game of chicken between Paris Saint-Germain and Real Madrid. Both sides aren’t talking over a Kylian Mbappé transfer. The 24-year-old is also linked to other clubs sniffing around for the Frenchman.
Nonetheless, if the two clubs aren’t talking, it might remove the report that an agent could be in the mix to act as a third party to help in the transfer.
Le Parisien reports that Real Madrid has yet to contact PSG about the potential acquisition of Mbappé. The French club remains optimistic about the deal.
Mbappé has not publicly spoken about his intentions or preferences while arriving at the training center and reporters asking questions.
🚨 Real Madrid have still not made the slightest approach to PSG for Kylian Mbappé. ❌

Still, Real Madrid’s president, Florentino Perez, seems determined not to rush into any decisions. The Real Madrid president understands the importance of playing the long game since the 2018 FIFA World Cup winner is a free agent next summer.
Mbappé’s future has been a subject of intense speculation for weeks after not triggering his extension until 2025. Real Madrid is the favorite for the PSG star, but there are other interested clubs.
As a result, the La Liga side could be looking to act now in fear of another club presenting an impressive offer.
