Paris Saint-Germain remains optimistic about the possibility of Kylian Mbappé renewing his contract, despite the fact that the French striker has until January 2 to sign a pre-contract with Real Madrid, according to a report from L’Équipe.
The French newspaper reports that PSG is more optimistic now than it was in 2022, when Mbappé ultimately decided to stay with the club. According to L’Équipe, PSG president Nasser Al-Khelaifi has restored his relationship with Mbappé, and the two men agree that it is important to make a decision about Mbappé’s future as soon as possible.
L’Équipe does not rule out the possibility of Mbappé signing with Real Madrid or another Premier League club, but it says that it is still receiving positive signals from PSG. This suggests that the transfer saga is still very much alive.
It is interesting to note that Real Madrid has also been expressing optimism about its chances of signing Mbappé. This suggests that either Mbappé is playing both sides, or one of the two clubs is lying.
The real ‘deadline’
Real Madrid has made it clear to Mbappé that this is his last chance to join the best club in the world. If Mbappé rejects Madrid’s offer, the Spanish club will move on and never approach him again.
Real Madrid has communicated this message to Mbappé privately, but it has also leaked it to the media so that Mbappé understands that the club is serious.
The next few days will be crucial in the Mbappé saga. If Mbappé signs a pre-contract with Real Madrid, it will be a major blow to PSG. If Mbappé stays with PSG, it will be a major coup for the French club.
