With his deal having less than a year to run, Mbappe could leave for nothing in a year's time. However, the striker would prefer to make the move to Madrid this month.
Everything will depend on PSG president Nasser Al-Khelaifi, who must now decide whether to sell or allow Mbappe to walk away for nothing in a year's time. It's been suggested Al-Khelaifi is reluctant to lose face by allowing Mbappe to leave as a free agent next June.
Real Madrid, meanwhile, are waiting in the wings and share the same opinion as Mbappe in terms of closing a transfer as soon as possible. Real do not wish to leave things open to losing Mbappe to a rival in a Bosman deal in 2022.
