Real Madrid puts pressure on Kylian Mbappé to make a decision
The deadline is approaching for the Paris Saint-Germain forward
Real Madrid is reportedly exerting pressure on Kylian Mbappé to determine his future, as stated by AS, which showcases a photo of the Paris Saint-Germain attacker on its front page. The 24-year-old forward must indicate by January 15th where he wants to continue his career.
Mbappé is currently under contract with PSG until the summer of 2024. He has so far refused to agree to an option for an additional year. Real Madrid is confident that Mbappé will not exercise this option before January 1st. This would mean that the player is free to negotiate with interested parties starting from the new calendar year. The Spanish club intends to make him a proposal immediately after the turn of the year.
Mbappé does not have much time to decide, as Real Madrid wants to know before January 15th whether the forward is willing to come to the Spanish capital. In the summer of 2022, Mbappé was very close to making a move to Real Madrid. However, PSG pressured him and he decided to re-sign with the French club. Since then, the relationship between the leadership of Real Madrid and PSG has been strained.
Real Madrid believes that fifteen days is sufficient for Mbappé to make a choice. If the Frenchman accepts the Spanish club’s proposal, PSG will not be able to prevent the transfer. This is due to Mbappé’s free-agent status from 2024 onwards, unless he exercises the option in his contract with PSG before January 1st.
