Kylian Mbappe's future has constantly remained a topic of discussion in the world of football. For years, he has been linked with a move to Real Madrid. The French World Cup winner has seemed destined to make the switch to Santiago Bernabeu but it has not materialises so far. Could that finally happen next summer?
Mbappe's current deal with PSG is set to run out next summer. So far, he does not seem close to an extension with the Ligue 1 giants.
Real Madrid have looked like the favourites for his signature for a long time. In recent weeks, Liverpool have been rumoured as a possible destination as well. And the possibility of him potentially extending his PSG contract has never been completely ruled out either.
"It’s always the same on Mbappe guys. When he decides his future, we will let people know.
“We’ve spent years commenting on rumours but nothing happened. Mbappe wants to take his time with his mother and lawyers to make the best decision.
“Real Madrid are still working on it behind the scenes but for sure they won’t wait forever as it happened two years ago… so timing will also be important, for sure.
“Let’s see what will happen because PSG will keep insisting on a contract extension."

So, it looks like no decision has been made yet with regards to Mbappe's future. And one would expect the Frenchman to take his time. This is a major step in his career.
For the last few years, it has felt like Mbappe's career at the club level has stagnated a bit. The likes of Jude Bellingham, Erling Haaland, and perhaps even Vinicius Junior, have moved ahead of him in the list of potential future Ballon d'Or winners.
If Mbappe wants to bring things back on track, changing clubs might be the easiest way to do that. Real Madrid and Liverpool are both great potential destinations for him.
Of course, it is very possible that he could extend his contract with PSG, like he did the last time around. All options are open and all eyes are on what Mbappe decides to do next.
