Kylian Mbappe’s potential move to Real Madrid appears to be growing in likelihood by the day with the latest report being that the French superstar will confirm his exit from Paris Saint-Germain following their upcoming game against the Spanish side.
The two clubs are set to face off against each other in their Champions League round of 16 ties on February 15 for the first leg and it’s after this that Mbappe will reportedly tell his current club of his desire to leave, before announcing his move to Real Madrid in the summer.
This is according to El Chiringuito TV’s lead presenter Josep Pedrerol, who was been consistently adamant that the superstar will join Los Blancos.
Real had two bids – worth £137m and £154m – for Mbappe rejected by PSG in the summer but the French club will now need to get the attacker to sign a new deal or his future is out of their hands.
In fact, as of January 1, because his contract is now less than six months, the striker is able to sign a pre-contract agreement with any club.
PSG boss Mauricio Pochettino recently made a public plea for the 23-year-old to stay at the Parc des Princes. "The contractual situations affect you when you do not have the maturity to manage them,” said the Argentine.
“Kylian has the maturity. The club wants him to stay a long time. It's between the two parties. We hope Kylian will continue to have the same level of performance as always."
Is there any way PSG can persuade Mbappe to remain at the club? Let us know in the comments section.
PSG Sporting director Leonardo said last month: "It is a complicated situation because we would like him to stay his whole life and we have to respect his position.
"I think there are still good opportunities to renew his contract. I believe in that."
"Mbappe is the best player in the world. People will think that we say that because we want to renew his contract, but no.
"It is beyond the interest of the club. At 22, almost 23, Kylian has reached an incredible maturity."
Mbappe recently denied rumours that he will be leaving as soon as January but has so far refused to rule out a move to the Spanish capital in the summer.
