Real Madrid are in a favorable position to sign Kylian Mbappe as a free agent next summer, and according to the latest reports, they do not face the risk of a last-minute cash offer from Paris Saint-Germain to block the move.

Diario AS report that PSG have no plans to offer the striker a new deal, but hope he will accept the one-year extension clause in his contract, despite being free to negotiate with whoever he wants from January 1. .

Their strategy is for a delighted Kylian Mbappe, who appears to be enjoying working with Luis Enrique, to withdraw from the option of extending his stay and either take PSG into talks, or give the club more time to convince Mbappe to stay in Paris.

“It is not possible to offer more money”, is PSG’s official position, but this opens the way for Real Madrid (and any other club) to negotiate freely with him from January onwards.

Meanwhile, Mbappe’s ambitions to be the first player to win the Champions League are clear, but his continued rejection of Los Blancos may suggest he may not have many other options without damaging the relationship long-term. .

Also, the fact that Real Madrid have made no effort to sign a main striker this summer suggests they may be waiting for Mbappe. However, one thing is certain about Mbappe: he does not make a firm decision until the end.
