Paris Saint-Germain star Kylian Mbappe will become a free agent in the summer. He has been linked to moves to Real Madrid, Liverpool and Champions League finalists.

Liverpool have been informed that the battle for Kylian Mbappe’s signature is now between Paris Saint-Germain and Real Madrid.

Mbappe has decided to end his contract and will be allowed to transfer to PSG for free, despite the fact that no extension agreement has been reached. Madrid attempted to sign the World Cup winner on three occasions last summer, only to see a bid in excess of €200million (£171m) turned down.

Los Blancos appear to be poised to secure Mbappe on a free transfer. This will allow them to create a compelling financial package, including incentives, wages, and signing fees. Mbappe was reportedly in Madrid to meet Jose Angel Sanchez, Madrid general director. Marca reported that an agreement had been reached.

Mbappe indicated that a decision had been reached. However, he has remained mum on the matter despite being in a position to negotiate a precontract arrangement starting January 1. “I will officially announce my decision on the future before I join the France national team in June. It’s a matter of days then it will be official,”He explained his explanation after he was awarded the Ligue 1 Player Of The Season award for the third consecutive season. “It will be known very soon, it’s almost done. My decision is made, yes, almost.”

Liverpool are still linked to the prolific striker, despite appearing to be behind their Champions League counterparts. Mbappe has fumbled eyelashes at Jurgen Klopp and Reds in previous years, raising anticipation that Anfield might be his destination.

“This season, Liverpool have been a machine in the Premier League,” Mbappe said back in 2020. “They have made winning look easy but the truth is that it is never easy.

“Performances like they have been having don’t just happen. To be as ruthless as they have been would come from lots of hard work in training and from having a very good manager.”

However, Marca claim that if he was to leave France, his only other option would be to realise a boyhood dream and play for Real Madrid, the team he supported as a child. The report adds that in the last week Mbappe’s representatives made contact with Reds bosses to let them know that while he was flattered by their interest, they were not an option for him.

Instead, he looks poised to sign a five-year deal at the Bernabeu which will see him become one of the world’s best-paid players. On PSG’s part, while all signs point to an imminent exit, they remain hopeful of keeping hold of their talisman and have yet to hear a definitive answer.

Speaking three weeks ago, PSG director Leonardo made light of the situation, telling Sky Sports Italia: “In Madrid, they’ve been convinced for three years that Kylian Mbappe would end up at Real Madrid. Maybe they’re a little too sure about that?”

He added: “Honestly, the discussions were always there. There is no ‘special’ meeting in Doha. Kylian, he talks with us, and we have constant communication. I think he is still in a reflection. I think there is a possibility that he stays. He can also leave. But he is thinking.”
