After spending the first match of the season sitting on the sidelines, Mbappe scored on his return to PSG’s first team against Toulouse last Saturday, according to the media reports.
In that incident, the French striker indicated that he would advance his future at the club. But new rumors have started about him. This summer, Real Madrid has made a new proposal to take Mbappe’s services, according to local media. The Spanish giants are reportedly preparing a new £103m offer for the 24-year-old France international as a last-ditch effort.
Spanish outlet AS report that the Paris club are hoping to agree a new deal with Mbappe, whose current contract expires in less than 12 months. Still, PSG is ready to let him go if the La Liga club pays the right price.
This is the latest addition to the ongoing drama between these three parties. Despite the expectation of many that Mbappe will eventually join the camp of the 14-time European title holders, his current owners are demanding more than they think.
Despite Mbappe’s decision to leave his boyhood club next year without a transfer fee, PSG showed their anger by sending him to the ‘B’ team for training. The star was brought back to the main team last Saturday after the new coach Luis Enrique took charge.
Note that PSG has started a new mission in League One with two consecutive draws. It is believed that Mbappe will be kept in the starting XI for next Saturday’s match against Lens.
The drama started with Mbappe’s change of party this June. A few days after Argentine superstar Lionel Messi left PSG, Mbappe sent a letter saying that he is not renewing his contract with PSG.
After his announcement, the champions of League One were shaken. PSG’s contract with Mbappe will expire in June next year, then he can leave PSG for free if he wishes. According to the terms of the contract, Mbappe can renew his contract with PSG for one year if he wants.
However, the decision to renew the contract or not was required to be communicated by June 2023. Since Mbappe did not agree to renew his contract during that period, PSG entered the field to sell him. The League One club is not willing to let go of the team’s best star for free. But Mbappe is also not willing to leave PSG before the end of his term. Because according to the terms of the contract, if he spends at PSG until the end of this season, he will get the full loyalty bonus. Then he wants to sign the most successful team in La Liga, Real Madrid.
Real, who were cheated by Mbappe last season, were also waiting to sign him for free next season. Therefore, the La Liga club did not make any offer for Mbappe.
PSG recover from the pre-season tour of Asia without Mbappe after announcing that he will not renew his contract. At that time, Saudi club Al-Hilal made an offer to PSG to bring Mbappe to the team. But far from joining Al-Hilal, Mbappe did not even agree to negotiate with the club’s officials.
After this incident, PSG made a tough decision regarding Mbappe. This superstar was sent to practice with the B team. Places are given to players who are separated from the main team for special reasons. Usually, this squad consists of low-paid players, who do not perform up to expectations or who are not considered essential players by the club.
However, PSG could not keep Mbappe in this squad for long. In the first match of the league without Mbappe and Neymar, the champions of League One drew with Lorient and shared the points. Forced to bring Mbappe back to the main team PSG. He scored in the return match against Toulouse. Paris Giants drew 1-1 in that match as well.
