Reports that Kylian Mbappe has rejected another contract renewal offer from Paris Saint-Germain have sparked yet more speculation in the Spanish media about a possible move to Real Madrid.
France's RMC Sport had claimed on Monday that the star forward had turned down PSG's offer of a new five-year deal, with the option of a sixth -- with just seven days left before the transfer window closes.
"PSG now open the door to Mbappe" is Marca's frontpage headline on Tuesday, saying that a €150 million transfer is "more possible than ever" although there's still a mood of "maximum caution" at the Bernabeu.
Diario AS, meanwhile, argues that "both the player and PSG themselves are now aware that the best solution for both parties is accepting a transfer." The newspaper goes a step further on its frontpage, claiming "the key for Mbappe" could be Cristiano Ronaldo leaving Juventus and joining PSG to replace him.
Spanish radio show El Larguero took a more pessimistic view on Monday night. The programme's well-connected host Manu Carreno said that the situation hadn't changed, PSG did not want to let him go now, and the most likely scenario remained that Mbappe would join Real Madrid for free next summer.
