Kylian Mbappe 'reinstated' into the PSG first-team squad following 'positive' talks

Kylian Mbappe has been 'reinstated' into Paris Saint-Germain's first-team squad following 'positive' discussions.

The decision comes after PSG drew 0-0 with Lorient on Saturday in their opening game of the 2023/24 season.

The star forward wasn't included in the matchday squad as he trained away from the group amid his contract situation. He watched on from the stands as his side failed to score without his services.

Mbappe had been made to train with PSG's 'undesirables' - which also includes Neymar - after refusing to sign a contract extension.

His current deal has less than a year remaining, with the 24-year-old strongly linked with a move to Real Madrid.

But he's back in first-team training, with PSG confirming 'positive' discussions have been held between the club and the player.

"Following very constructive and positive discussions between Paris Saint-Germain and Kylian Mbappe before the PSG - Lorient game, the player has been reinstated into the first team training squad this morning," the statement reads.

Mbappe will take part in a training session with the first-team on Sunday with a view to potentially playing against Toulouse next Saturday.

He hasn't trained much at PSG as he didn't take part in the club's pre-season tour of Asia.

The France international has been the subject of intense transfer speculation, with reports claiming he could join Real on a free transfer next summer.

Of course, PSG are eager to avoid a scenario where he leaves on a free transfer as they would want to receive a fee for their prized asset.

Saudi Arabian outfit Al Hilal tabled a monstrous £259 million bid for Mbappe, but he turned down the chance to ply his trade in the Middle East.

Further reports claim the World Cup winner could be open to renewing his contract at PSG, with Neymar thought to be on the verge of signing a deal with Al Hilal.
