It is unclear what exactly is going on regarding Kylian Mbappe's future. The Frenchman's current contract with Paris Saint-Germain is set to run out at the end of this season. So far, all options seem to be open. Conflicting rumours are swirling around the future of the World Cup winner though, who has been heavily linked with both Real Madrid and Liverpool in recent days.
A rumour recently broke out that Mbappe had rejected Real Madrid's offer. But now, there is a conflicting suggestion surrounding his future plans.
As reported by Foot Mercato, Mbappe has reached an agreement with Real Madrid in recent days. The suspense is coming to an end.
If that is indeed the case then Real Madrid might have pulled off one of the best transfers in football history. Signing arguably the best player in the world in his prime as a free agent does not happen often.
Mbappe reportedly reaches agreement with Real Madrid
To be very honest, nothing is ever certain when it comes to the Mbappe saga. So, all we can do is wait and watch how things play out, without taking anything for granted.
The speculation around his future has not affected Mbappe's performance on the pitch though. He scored a hattrick in PSG's recent 9-0 win over Revel in the French Cup. According to stats from Transfermarkt, he has scored 25 goals and provided 3 assists in 24 appearances this season so far.
Naturally, there is a lot of interest in a player like him. At the moment, Real Madrid look like his most likely destination. But with the number of twists and turns we have witness in this saga over the years, another few before the end of the season would not come as a surprise. Until an official announcement is made, nothing should be taken for granted.
