‘A small setback’ – Kylian Mbappé’s Olympic dreams throw spanner in works at Real Madrid

An interesting update on the ongoing negotiations between Paris Saint-Germain superstar Kylian Mbappé, and Spanish giants Real Madrid, has been provided this evening.

The info comes courtesy of Diario Sport, who point towards something of a hiccup as having been encountered in talks.

Mbappé, it is claimed, has this week made it clear that he intends to participate in this summer’s Olympic games in his home country of France.

And as much is viewed as ‘a small setback’ by the Real Madrid brass.

This comes with a France outfit with sights firmly set on a gold medal potentially set to play all the way through to August 10th.

Les Bleus, for their part, plan to call upon the star-studded trio of Antoine Griezmann, Raphaël Varane, and Mbappé, as their permitted over-23 participants.

Regarding the latter, it is in turn claimed that:

‘Club and footballer must manage the situation in the best possible way and try to reach an agreement to resolve this small setback of his landing in Madrid.’

Another day, another Kylian Mbappé story…
