The Kylian Mbappé transfer saga could reach a temporary solution as the summer transfer deadline day nears. After returning to first-team training, the rumor mill is buzzing with information about his future at Paris Saint-Germain.
Real Madrid is keen on landing the player as a free agent since his contract expires in 2024. The Spanish club reportedly has no intention of paying a transfer fee to PSG. They are likely only concerned about his bonuses and salary if he decides to move.
Sky Sports’ Florian Plettenberg reports that PSG is confident that Mbappé will stay with the club for the 2023–24 season. According to the report, following recent discussions, the Frenchman has assured the club’s leaders about his commitment.
Despite persistent transfer rumors, PSG is reportedly not expecting an offer from Real Madrid in the next two weeks. This revelation further reinforces the belief that Mbappé is poised to don PSG’s jersey in the immediate future.
