Kylian Mbappe’s future has been a major talking point for the what seems like an eternity.
The Frenchman’s contract with Paris Saint-Germain will run out in the summer.
PSG have tried desperately to convince him to extend his stay, but he has refrained from signing a new contract.
Real Madrid have been heavily linked with a move for the French superstar.
Mbappe revealed on Sunday evening that he was close to making a decision on his future and will announce his plans before he joins up for France duty.
“I can’t say about my future but you’ll know very soon… it’s almost decided,” Mbappe said at a Ligue 1 awards ceremony on Sunday, per the Daily Mail.
“This isn’t the right moment but yes, yes… my decision is almost done.
“I will officially announce my decision on the future before I join the France national team in June”.
Following his comments, Spanish outlet Marca have reported that Mbappe has resisted PSG’s attempts to extend his stay and has instead decided to join Real Madrid.
They report that Mbappe visited Madrid on Monday and Tuesday of last week, eventually agreeing a five-year deal.
Interestingly, Marca reveal that Mbappe’s salary will be lower than what PSG were offering him.
