A little over three weeks after the elimination of the Blues at the Euro, Kylian Mbappé returned to Camp des Loges on Thursday. The PSG striker, whose future is still uncertain, cut short his vacation to resume training earlier than expected.
Three and a half weeks is enough for him. While Kylian Mbappé could have benefited from a few extra days of leave, he decided to get back to work sooner than expected. Less than a month after the elimination of the France team against Switzerland, in the round of 16 of the Euro (3-3, 5 tab to 4), the PSG striker made his return on Thursday at Camp des Loges.

The greatest vagueness remains at the end of July.
PSG leaders will have to clarify this issue as quickly as possible so as not to pollute the start of the season. Especially since the first deadlines arrive very quickly. The winners of the Coupe de France have an appointment from August 1 with Lille, winner of the last Ligue 1, for a Champions Trophy relocated to Tel Aviv (Israel).
