The Kylian Mbappé transfer saga has reportedly reached a temporary solution. The Frenchman is staying after a summer filled with rumors of a possible exit, which included the 24-year-old missing Paris Saint-Germain’s summer tour in Asia.
RMC Sport’s Fabrice Hawkins reports that Mbappé will stay at PSG this season. The Ligue 1 giants hope to extend his contract, but the negotiations for a possible extension have not started.

Anyone expecting a last-minute bid from Real Madrid can begin to look at the next chapter in this ongoing saga. So what’s next?
Well, the 2018 FIFA World Cup winner’s contract expires next summer, so unless PSG signs him until an extension by January 2024, the Spanish club can begin pre-contract talks for the 2024-25 season.
Furthermore, El Chiringuito host Josep Pedrerol believes if the 2018 FIFA World Cup winner commits to the Ligue 1 giants by signing an extension or new contract, it’s time for the La Liga side to move on.
“If he renews with PSG, Madrid must forget about him,” Pedrerol said Wednesday. “He cannot be above the club.”
Will that happen? Who knows. By now, everyone should know that this saga is unpredictable.
