Kylian Mbappe, a French famous player, was put back on the first team for Paris Saint-Germain on Sunday after being held out for a few weeks because of a contract disagreement.
On Saturday, PSG started their defense of the Ligue 1 title with a 0-0 draw at home against Lorient, while the team’s best player watched from the stands.
“After very constructive and positive talks between Paris Saint-Germain and Kylian Mbappe before the PSG-Lorient match, the player was put back on the first training team this morning,” PSG said in a statement.
After a summer of change at the Parc des Princes, with new players coming in and Lionel Messi leaving, the Mbappe stand-off is still the biggest story.
The leader of France has refused to sign a contract extension with PSG, which means he can leave for free next year. Real Madrid has been thought to be his top choice for a long time.
PSG wants to sell him now and get a lot of money for a player they bought from Monaco for €180 million ($198 million) in 2017.
On Friday, Mbappe’s new boss, Luis Enrique, said he hoped a solution could be found. However, Mbappe has not been able to work with the first team and was not on the team that played Lorient.
Instead, he sat with fellow 2018 World Cup winner Ousmane Dembele, whose move from Barcelona was finalized earlier that day, as Luis Enrique gave six players their first starts.
