Kylian Mbappe has an “agreement” to join Real Madrid, but PSG will have to be persuaded to get on board with the sale, according to football agent Bruno Satin.
The 22-year-old came through the ranks with French side Monaco. He scored 26 goals from his 44 outings in 2016/17 as he helped them win the Ligue 1 title.
Mbappe initially joined PSG on loan in 2017 but the deal was made permanent for around €145m plus add-ons.
The forward has established himself as one of the leading players in world football with PSG. He has 131 goals from 170 outings for them.
Mbappe is entering the final year of his contract with the French giants. He has been linked with a move to Liverpool and Real Madrid.
Satin told Canal+, as cited by MARCA, that Mbappe already has an agreement in place to join Real Madrid:
“My feeling is more than he’s willing to do it.
“I also have some information, according to which Kylian Mbappé and his family have an agreement with Real Madrid.
“In principle, there would be an agreement on the part of the player, but we also need the agreement of Paris Saint-Germain.
“Obviously the Qataris and Paris Saint-Germain have not decided to do without Kylian Mbappé. He could very well then end his contract and go to zero.
“History has taught us that if the leaders or Doha do not want a player to leave, they make it stay until it is no longer theirs.”
This comes after reports suggested that Mbappe “can see himself” at Liverpool. Jurgen Klopp has been quick to rule out his side making any huge signings this summer, though:
“Not playing Champions League doesn’t help, obviously, but it is not our biggest problem because the market will be really strange.
“I hear a lot about big-money moves – is Kylian Mbappe going or not, Haaland, Sancho – I don’t see that happening because the football world is still not in the same place it was before.
“We will see how the market develops but it will not be an early market, for sure.
“If we don’t go to the Champions League it is not good but there is still a chance and as long as we have a chance we should not speak about it as if we have no chance. And if it is not then we have to deal with that.”
