The future of Kylian Mbappé remains a topic of discussion with his contract expiring in June. The 23-year-old is linked to a departure for Real Madrid, and Paris Saint-Germain is hoping to keep their star player.
PSG reportedly offered the France international that would see him earn an annual salary of €50-million. Transfer window specialist Fabrizio Romano updated this soap opera during an appearance on La Gazzetta Dello FIVE hosted by Rio Ferdinand.
Romano stated that Real Madrid has a verbal agreement with Mbappé; however, the journalist says that the capital club plans to do something crazy to convince him to remain with them past this season. Nonetheless, he doesn’t add much further detail to those remarks.
“Kylian Mbappé has a verbal agreement with Real Madrid … But nothing is signed yet. But believe me, PSG is doing something crazy to convince Mbappé. It’s about money, but not only. It concerns different aspects of his private life. The Parisian leaders will try to convince him in every possible way until the last day of his contract,” Romano said.
“They are working tirelessly on this file, but at present, Real is calming down with its verbal agreement… Kylian wants to be respectful with his club, but in the end, a choice will have to be made. We will see what Mbappéwill decide. For the moment, he is taking his time, playing at a top-level and does not seem affected by the situation.”
Recently, French media outlet L’Equipe published information regarding the two reasons Mbappé could consider that would see him remain with his hometown club. First, becoming the club’s all-time leading goal scorer and supporter’s affection towards him might influence his decision.
