Paris Saint-Germain star Kylian Mbappe was left off the roster for the club’s tour to Japan. The capital club issued the names that will be traveling and the 24-year-old’s not on the list.
Mbappe has one year left on his contract and PSG wants to either extend the player or sell him. Losing the Frenchman on a free transfer next summer would be financially catastrophic.
The 2018 FIFA World Cup winner is linked to Real Madrid and this omission from the tour will only ramp up speculation.

Mbappe staying in Paris leads many to believe a possible transfer could be in the works with the Spanish club. However, seeing if any Premier League side decides to jump into the race will be interesting.
After Mbappe opted not to trigger the option to extend his contract until 2025, rumors over an exit began surfacing. The Frenchman seems to be more on the outside than staying with his hometown club.
