Kylian Mbappe, the forward for Paris St-Germain, has returned to first-team training and is expected to stay with the French champions this summer.
The 24-year-old France forward has not been exercising with the first-team squad and was omitted from PSG’s 0-0 season opener against Lorient on Saturday.
He has been in a contract dispute with PSG over his desire to join Real Madrid, but he may now be able to extend his stay.
Mbappe was restored by PSG after “very constructive and positive” negotiations, according to the club.
On Saturday, the France captain sat in the stands alongside France teammate Ousmane Dembele, who joined PSG from Barcelona for £43.5 million. He was also excluded from the pre-season vacation to Asia.
Mbappe has one year left on his current deal and has so far refused to sign a new contract. Last month, PSG gave Saudi Arabian side Al-Hilal permission to talk to the player after making a world-record £259m bid.
His reintegration has been arrived at following discussions between all parties in the past 12 hours.
PSG chairman Nasser Al-Khelaifi has been adamant he would not let the striker leave for nothing and it is thought some kind of agreement is likely that will see Mbappe sign the one-year extension to his present deal as originally envisaged.
That would run to 2025 and allow PSG to sell Mbappe to Real next summer.
“Following very constructive and positive discussions between Paris St-Germain and Kylian Mbappe before the PSG – Lorient game, the player has been reinstated into the first team training squad this morning,” PSG said on Sunday.
Mbappe, who joined PSG in 2017 initially on loan from Monaco before a 180m euro (£165.7m) transfer, has scored a club record 212 goals in 260 games.
