Real Madrid transfer news: Mbappe still undecided on PSG future

Paris Saint-Germain striker Kylian Mbappe has admitted that he still hasn’t made a decision as to whether he’ll sign a contract extension with the club. 

The France international has quickly established himself as one of the most exciting talents in world football since he made the move from Monaco in 2018 for a reported fee of £130 million. 

In that time Mbappe has scored 120 goals in 160 games for the Ligue 1 club and bagged a further 59 assists too.

As such, the 22-year-old talent has quickly moved to the top of most super club shortlists, with Real Madrid reportedly showing the most interest in signing the striker this summer. 

However, whether the Spanish giants will get their new star will depend on Mbappe either agreeing to a new deal or deciding to leave the club when his current contract expires at the end of next season. 

And according to the player himself, such a decision has yet to be made despite pressure form both sides. 

“If I have advanced in my reflection of continuing or not at PSG? If I had moved on, I would have come to talk about it right now,” the French striker told RTL. “When I have made my decision, I will come and talk about it.” 

Could Mbappe join Real Madrid this summer? 

The player’s suggestion that he hasn’t yet made a decision on his future at PSG will undoubtedly come as music to the ears of Madrid’s hierarchy. 

Not only will Madrid be desperate to sign Mbappe but they’ll also be fully aware of the fact that their hopes of signing the striker will entirely depend on him not extending his current contract. 

If Mbappe refuses to sign a new contract with the French giants then we can likely expect to see PSG completely change their tactics with the striker and look to sell him this summer, rather than allow him to leave for free in the summer of 2022.
