Kylian Mbappe’s transfer saga has quieted down, but his name always hits the back pages in France and Spain.
The French star has been linked with Real Madrid for years but is still playing for Paris Saint-Germain.
The club has reportedly come up with two ideas which they believe will persuade him to stay.
Mbappe was expected to leave PSG in the summer, and he even informed the club that he wouldn’t be extending his current deal, which expires in the summer of 2024.
That decision saw the club take measures to make sure their most prized asset does not leave for nothing. They put him up for sale and even omitted him from the club’s pre-season tour in Asia.

However, Mbappe reportedly had a conversation with the club’s top brass and was brought back into the fold before the 2023/24 season kicked off.
Since then, he’s been scoring goals for fun under coach, Luis Enrique. In 18 appearances in all competitions, he has bagged 18 goals, with 15 of those coming in Ligue 1, per Transfermarkt.
PSG’s plan for Mbappe
According to the Spanish outlet, Diario AS, via Football Espana, PSG will attempt to sweet-talk Mbappe about his legacy in France.
The 2024 Olympics will be held in France’s capital, Paris. They see this as a perfect opportunity for Mbappe to lead his country to gold on home soil.
PSG will reportedly not stop the World Cup winner from playing for France. The Olympics will be held between July 26 and August 11, 2024.
Furthermore, Mbappe has scored 179 goals in Ligue 1 and is fifth in the all-time goal-scorers list, needing just 120 to equal Delio Onnis’s record of 299 goals. This means he will need to play a few more seasons to breach that record.

The French prodigy has never won the UEFA Champions League, and what would be better than winning it in a PSG shirt? The big question that remains is whether will Mbappe stay at the Parisians beyond this season.
Real Madrid’s plan for Mbappe
Sports Brief also previously reported on Real Madrid looking to make one final attempt to sign Mbappe early next year.
The Spanish giants are reportedly going to make an offer and expect a quick answer to avoid dragging it out like last year.
Real Madrid have tried to sign Mbappe away from PSG a few times, but no deal materialised as he remains a star in Paris.
