There are a couple of weeks until the summer transfer window closes, so Paris Saint-Germain has to find a solution to the Kylian Mbappé saga.
Real Madrid is the likely next destination for the 24-year-old. However, before the 2018 FIFA World Cup winner joins the Spanish club, it could be a messy divorce with PSG.
ESPN’s Julien Laurens reports that Mbappé is very stubborn and will no longer accept anything from PSG. Laurens adds that Mbappé’s resolve is unshakable, with the player rejecting any further offers from PSG, regardless of financial incentives.
🚨🇫🇷 Mbappe is very stubborn, he will NOT accept anything from PSG anymore. Even if PSG offers Mbappe all the money in the world, he's not going to renew his contract with them – he has made up his mind and no one can change it now. @LaurensJulien #rmalive pic.twitter.com/1zTiTGOTq5

His stance underscores his unwavering decision to move on, signaling a significant chapter in the ongoing transfer saga. The Frenchman kicked off the saga by not triggering the option to extend his contract until 2025.
As a result, the capital club has to move quickly to ensure they secure a transfer fee. PSG cannot afford to allow Mbappé to leave next summer as a free agent. Nonetheless, the forward could be enticed to allow his contract to expire.
It will be interesting to see what Real Madrid decides to do, whether they make a respectable offer and begin a new chapter with Mbappé.
