Kylian Mbappe sends clear Chelsea transfer message as new £100m bid prepared

The French striker’s contract has less than a year left, as he declined to extend it by an additional year as per an option. This created a standoff with the club management, who insisted on an extension to prevent losing him on a free transfer.

While his departure appeared increasingly likely over the weeks, clubs like Arsenal, Chelsea, and Real Madrid entered the picture without making formal offers. PSG escalated the situation by excluding him from their pre-season tour and training him separately.

However, the situation took a turn as discussions led to a breakthrough, allowing Mbappe to return to the first-team fold and even sparking rumors of a new contract to quell transfer speculation, at least temporarily.

Mbappe’s return to action in a match against Toulouse featured a significant moment. After scoring a penalty and celebrating, he audibly stated, “Je reste la,” meaning “I am staying here,” which could suggest his decision about his future.

This declaration could pose a setback for Chelsea, who sought to bolster their lineup with his star power under new ownership. Similarly, Arsenal could have elevated their status with a player of his world-class caliber.

Nevertheless, Real Madrid remains undeterred, reportedly preparing a late bid in the range of £100 million to secure their primary target. The aim is to finalize the transfer swiftly and avoid prolonged negotiations with PSG.

While this development might appear conclusive, the situation still seems poised for further twists and turns in the near future.
