The Kylian Mbappé transfer saga took a turn over the last few days. Reports suggest ongoing talks for a potential contract extension between the 24-year-old and Paris Saint-Germain.
Mbappé is now training with the first-team, which coincides with Neymar Jr. leaving the capital club to join Al-Hilal. There are conflicting reports as to what led to PSG making this change.

Los Blancos are operating with the business-as-usual mentality. However, the Spanish media isn’t taking a potential Mbappé extension well.
“If it is true that Real Madrid would be very surprised if [Mbappé] deceived to renew with PSG, it is that Real Madrid still does not know the type of person that deceived [them],” Rodríguez tweeted. “And that is very worrying.”
As the Sept. 1 summer transfer deadline nears, this saga should be entering a new chapter, especially if the Frenchman doesn’t sign a new contract.
