Real Madrid: Mbappe considering extending contract at PSG
Kylian Mbappe is undecided on his club future despite strong talk of a Real Madrid move while Cristiano Ronaldo is considering his options.
Kylian Mbappé is widely expected to join Real Madrid at the end of this season with the 23-year-old France forward stalling on a new contract offer at Paris Saint-Germain. Madrid have been circling for Mbappé's signature for a long time and had multiple bids rejected in 2021 but remain confident of landing the PSG forward in the summer as a free agent. However, according to reports in France, Mbappé may yet decide to extend his stay at the Parc des Princes.
Mbappé could spring a surprise and renew his current PSG deal prior to the end of this season, claims Le Parisien. The 2018 World Cup winner had been expected to become a free agent when his contract expires on June 30 and join Madrid .
Le Parisien claims that PSG have hope that Mbappé may pen an extension to force a transfer fee from Los Blancos, should they pursue a move. Mbappé is still undecided on his future, according to the report.
