Kylian Mbappe is near snubbing the likes of Real Madrid and Liverpool by signing a two-year contract extension with Paris Saint-Germain, in line with reports. The 23-year-old has been heavily linked with a move away from the French capital over the previous few months, with Real Madrid said to be keen on bringing him to the Bernabeu on a free transfer at the top of the season.
Liverpool have also been credited with a long-standing interest in landing Mbappe, who shall be out of contract at the top of the present campaign as things stand. Nevertheless, the Frenchman is now set to remain in Paris for the foreseeable future after reaching an agreement in principle over a recent two-year cope with the choice of a 3rd, in line with Le Parisien.
The report states that Mbappe’s representatives have approved PSG’s latest offer, which incorporates an eye-watering net salary of around £42.5million per yr. The forward may even receive a lucrative signing-on bonus within the region of £85.1m if he officially puts pen to paper between now and the expiry of his current deal at the top of June.
Those in power at PSG are said to be adamant that Mbappe will sign his recent and improved contract as soon because the formalities have been ironed out by all parties within the not-too-distant future. The thought of Mbappe agreeing a recent cope with PSG has been denied by Fabrizio Romano, though, who claims that he continues to be weighing up his future upfront of next season.

Real Madrid are known to be huge admirers of Mbappe and reportedly saw a nine-figure bid for the Paris native rejected by PSG just hours before last summer’s transfer deadline. It seems as if they might now be forced to look elsewhere to be able to reinforce their attacking ranks after failing of their efforts to poach Mbappe’s signature on the expense of his current employers.
Mbappe has chipped in with 35 goals in all competitions for PSG this season and shall be expected to function their attacking talisman for at the least the subsequent two years if he decides to increase his spell on the club over the approaching weeks. He refused to rule out the potential of staying at PSG when quizzed on his future last month but insisted that he was yet to make a final decision on whether or not to go away the club ahead of next season.
“I haven’t made my alternative on the longer term, everyone knows that,” Mbappe told Amazon Prime Video. “I’m pondering, there are recent elements and loads of parameters. If I had made my decision, I’d’ve announced it.
“Is it possible to remain at PSG? Yes, after all. There isn’t a have to talk lots, there are recent elements that I’ll consider for my future. It’s not a straightforward decision, my family will help me. I don’t intend to make any mistake, my alternative hasn’t been made, the entire world knows that.”
