Kylian Mbappe is the most talked about player in football and the last 24 hours has been pretty much all about the Frenchman.

The 23-year-old will run down his PSG contract at the end of the summer and there is much talk about where his next destination will be.

Last Sunday, Mbappe announced that he is close to releasing a statement on his future amid strong reports he had already agreed on a five-year deal with Real Madrid.

Amidst all the rumors, PSG had always maintained hope of convincing the player to stay put at the club and recent reports suggest there might be a twist.

As per Di Marzio, Mbappe is now strongly considering to remain at PSG and could announce a decision on his future by Sunday. This could come as a blow to Real Madrid, who had been rather optimistic about signing the Frenchman.

What has been said?

Amid all of the uncertainty surrounding his future, Mbappe’s mother gave some clarity on the situation, while confirming that the player indeed has an agreement in principle with both Real Madrid and PSG.

“We will not have new meetings to discuss Mbappe’s future, these meetings are now over” she said in an interview with Kora Plus.

“Now we have found an agreement with both Real Madrid and PSG and the discussions are over because it is Kylian who has to choose now.”

“The two offers, that of PSG and Real, are almost identical. At Real, my son will have control of his image rights! We will now await his decision.”

“In the Real Madrid offer we have full power of image rights, on the other hand there is an economic balance that rewards this thing, in short there is no difference between the two are similar.”

In similar fashion, PSG boss Mauricio Pochettino has also claimed he is unsure about Mbappe’s future and does not know what will become of the player’s future.

“I don´t know what his decision is. I think it’s a personal matter for Kylian, and for the club,” Pochettino said when asked about the situation.

PSG or Real Madrid – It’s all in Mbappe’s hands

PSG will not go down without a fight and their latest offer to Mbappe is something of an ‘insult’ to football. The French giants have reportedly offered the player ‘complete control’ of the club’s sporting project, while also presenting him with a mammoth offer of £4million a month in wages and a £100m sign-on fee.

For Real Madrid, they will be hoping the Frenchman keeps to his promise and joins them regardless, having failed to convince him to join last summer.
