Kylian Mbappe reintegrated with Paris Saint-Germain first-team squad after training with ‘undesirables’

Kylian Mbappe has been reintegrated with Paris Saint-Germain’s first-team squad after weeks training with their ‘undesirables’.

The 24-year-old has one year left on his contract but is refusing to extend his stay and the club do not wish to lose him on a free transfer at the end of the campaign.

PSG, though, believe he has already agree a deal to join Real Madrid next summer, leading to a spell training with those for sale in Paris.

President Nasser Al Khelaifi had reportedly told Mbappe that he won’t play for the club again unless he signs a new deal.

A transfer bid was accepted from Al Hilal in the Saudi Pro League which would have made him the highest paid athlete in the world, but he has decided to remain in France.

And now the picture has changed again as he is reunited with Luis Enrique’s main squad.

A PSG statement read: “Following very constructive and positive talks between Paris Saint-Germain and Kylian Mbappe before the PSG-Lorient match, the player has been reintegrated into first-team training this morning.”

Mbappe was left out of their matchday group for their 2023/24 season opener with Lorient.

It’s funny what a 0-0 can do, though, as PSG fielded a new-look front-three of summer signings.

Lee Kang-In, Goncalo Ramos, and Marco Asensio all started the game, while striker Hugo Ekitike appeared from the bench, but only four shots on target from 20 attempts were managed.

Mbappe was in the stands on the night, alongside another new transfer from Barcelona – Ousmane Dembele, with the compatriots keen to work together.
