Paris Saint-Germain has extended an olive branch to Kylian Mbappe, with the young star rejoining the squad after constructive discussions with the club and his representatives.

Despite previous indications of his departure, he now finds himself back in the fold under the leadership of Luis Enrique. Nasser Al Khelaifi's presence at the training ground emphasized the commitment to Mbappe's return, indicating a change in the trajectory of negotiations.

The specifics of a potential extension to stay in Paris beyond June 2024 remain up in the air, with various options being considered, such as a short-term arrangement or a long-term contract featuring a release clause for next summer.

These deliberations signify a notable shift from the previously stagnant state of affairs. Naturally, this twist introduces complexity, particularly for Real Madrid, although according to Fabrizio Romano the Spanish club "has remained calm" over a future transfer for Mbappe.

As it stands, Real Madrid is adopting a composed stance. Throughout the summer, they refrained from entering any official negotiations--no offers, no discussions.

While their interest was evident, PSG always presumed that Mbappe's agreement with Real Madrid would materialize in the summer of 2024. Thus, they continue their course with tranquility, unaffected by the recent developments.

It's believed that Real Madrid would launch a last-minute offer for Mbappe later in the transfer window, but with the French superstar now back in full force with PSG's first-team squad that's not guaranteed anymore.

It's probable that Real Madrid just waits for next summer before making a move, whether that's offering Mbappe a contract if he doesn't extend his current deal or submitting an offer for him to PSG if he signs a new contract past next June.

For now, PSG are expected to bring Mbappe back to their lineup for the second game of Ligue 1 next weekend.
