Kylian Mbappe could play a big role in the outcome of the Premier League title race this season after making a decision about his future.
The Paris Saint-Germain star has been in a contract dispute with his employers having decided not to activate the clause in his contract to extend his stay for another year. Right now, Mbappé is set to leave the club on a free transfer next summer amid a desire to join Real Madrid.
However, after being forced to train away from Luis Enrique’s first team last week, the 24-year-old seems to have his short-term future settled. Today (Sunday August 13), Mbappé has returned to training and it is very likely that he will stay at the club.
Mbappe watched Saturday’s 0-0 draw with Lorient from the stands before PSG confirmed the striker had been reinstated in Enrique’s plans after “very constructive and positive” talks with president Nasser Al Khelaifi.
And according to French outlet Foot Mercato, the Ligue 1 champions are back in contract talks with Mbappe. Mbappé is said to want guarantees that he will be allowed to leave if Real Madrid offer enough money.

However, the same report claims that the striker wants PSG to sign Manchester City playmaker Bernardo Silva. The Parisians were linked with the Portuguese earlier in the window amid speculation about the 28-year-old’s future in the Premier League.
Silva was instrumental in City’s treble-winning campaign last year and is expected to play another starring role in their hopes of retaining the title. However, if he leaves the club, it would be a huge boost for Arsenal.
The Gunners are expected to challenge for the Premier League title once again this season after finishing second in the final period. City, like Arsenal, have further improved their squad this summer, but losing Silva would be a boost to the rest of the league.
