Anyone who has followed the Kylian Mbappé transfer saga knows to expect the unexpected with the Frenchman. Not many saw him rejecting Real Madrid in 2022, so the player is prone to changing his mind.
The latest information comes from The Athletic’s Mario Cortegana, who reports that he could be having second thoughts about joining Real Madrid this summer once his contract with Paris Saint-Germain expires in June.
According to Cortegana, Mbappé was initially leaning toward joining the Spanish giants this summer. However, key figures in his inner circle are now hesitant due to reservations about Real Madrid’s offer. Consequently, it is resulting in a delay in the decision-making process.
