The French international has been heavily linked with a move away from the Parc des Princes and Real Madrid has been touted as his most likely destination. However, PSG are keen to keep hold of their superstar and tie him to a new deal.
Reports earlier in the week had suggested that a deal between Mbappe and Real Madrid had been agreed, but subsequent developments suggest the striker is still sitting on the fence.
According to The Athletic, Mbappe has known the conditions Madrid are willing to offer him since the start of January. However, his team are not convinced by the deal the LaLiga giants have tabled.
It is believed Madrid’s proposal was lower than what was offered during the club’s previous negotiations over a transfer from PSG in May 2022. Although, the new deal would still see the striker become the highest-paid player in Madrid’s squad.

According to the Athletics’ sources, Mbappe was offered a €130million (£110m; $140m signing bonus and a salary of €26m per year in 2022 when they began negotiating.
Meanwhile, PSG presented Mbappe with a range of contracts including long-term and short-term deals over the last couple of months to encourage the 25-year-old to extend his stay in France.
The proposed deals would see Mbappe remain on the same salary he is on now – which is said to be €75million after tax, before any bonuses, according to The Athletic’s sources.
Madrid can not match PSG’s offer but the club’s president Florentino Perez reportedly remains confident he can convince Mbappe to join the club on the salary provided in their current offer.
Mbappe is currently being advised by his mother Fayza Lamari. She has become his agent once again after newspapers in Spain had reported late last year that she had to stop representing her son because of FIFA’s regulations on agents.
While those rules have subsequently been ‘relaxed’ Lamari recently stepped back into her position as his agent and will likely play a huge role in the next step of his footballing journey.
The striker’s mother is well known for playing hard ball when it comes to transfer business, with Lamari having also previously played hardball with her son over his wages.
Mbappe has been free to negotiate with other clubs since January 1 after entering the final six months of his PSG contract. However, club president Nasser Al-Khelaifi also openly stated that he wanted the winger to stay.
Speaking to RMC, Al-Khelaifi said: ‘Look, I’m not hiding anything. For sure I want Mbappe to stay. For me he is the best in the world and for me the best club for Kylian is Paris.’
Saudi Arabian side Al-Hilal also made an attempt to sign Mbappe during the 2023 summer transfer window, offering the striker a £173.2m-per-year deal to move to the Middle East.
But, it seems as though Real is too much of an enticing option for Mbappe given the fact he has turned down other clubs and returned to the negotiating table after previously rejecting them.
Equally, winning both individual and team honours is another appeal for the forward, who believes his best chance of winning the Champions League could be with Real Madrid.
However, Ancelotti’s side are struggling to match the offer tabled by Paris Saint-Germain
