However, Sky Sports have denied these reports, stating that Mbappe has not communicated any decision to PSG.

What has Fabrizio Romano said about Kylian Mbappe to Real Madrid?

Romano has also backed up Sky Sports’ information with his latest report for CaughtOffside.

“Kylian Mbappe is one situation to follow - both Paris Saint-Germain and Real Madrid are expecting Mbappe to announce his decision soon, we’re still waiting for that communication,” the transfer expert said.

“First he will communicate his decision to PSG president Nasser Al-Khelaifi, but for sure Real Madrid keep working very strong and very hard on this deal - they are on it.

Romano continued: “Still, let me clarify that. Despite what’s been reported by some, I never said Mbappe will announce his future on Feb 14, I don’t know where this is coming from.

“In any case there are constant contacts from Madrid to make it happen. The discussion is about the salary, potential contract and more, and it’s constant communication. PSG will wait and hope until the end, as nothing has been communicated to them yet.”

Mbappe has scored 29 goals in 28 games in all competitions so far this season as he continues to be the most influential player for Luis Enrique’s side.

PSG are currently 11 points clear at the top of the Ligue 1 table, with OGC Nice in second place. They are also through the last-16 of the Champions League.
