Real Madrid coach Zidane pushing Mbappe to run down PSG contract

Real Madrid coach Zinedine Zidane is working on PSG star Kylian Mbappe regarding a Bosman move.

Off contract in 2022, Mbappe is expected to be put up for sale by PSG this summer should he resist signing a new deal.

However, ABC says Zidane is in regular contact with Mbappe urging him to sit tight and run down his contract.

Real Madrid do not have the finances to buy the striker this summer and instead are relying on Zidane's relationship with Mbappe to convince him about a Bosman move in 2022.

For the moment, however, Mbappe has not committed to Zidane's suggestion.
