Reports suggest that Kylian Mbappe could finally be on his way out of Paris Saint-Germain come the end of the season.
It appears the drawn-out Mbappe transfer saga could be nearing its conclusion, with reports indicating that the French forward has finally made a decision regarding his future.
At the beginning of the campaign, Real Madrid tried to acquire the 23-year-old's services, but were unable to as Paris Saint-Germain rejected their offers for the forward, the last one a reported bid of €220 million (R3.4 billion).
As of late, the rumour mill has been in overdrive, with weekly speculation on what the Frenchman's future holds.
However, with only two months remaining on the 2018 FIFA World Cup champion's contract at the Parc des Princes, it's looking more and more likely the truth will come to light soon.
According to transfer expert Gianluca Di Marzio, Mbappe has a verbal agreement with Los Blancos that will see him adorn their famous white strip at the Santiago Bernabeu next season, and there is great optimism in the Real camp that it could soon turn into a signature.
Should the former AS Monaco man formalise the acceptance of the offer, he will reportedly have a gross signing bonus of €100 million (R1.5 billion) and a five-year contract that will see him rake in €50 million (R791 million) a season.
If this is the case, Mbappe will earn significantly more than the current highest earner at Los Blancos, Gareth Bale, does, with the Welshman said to be on close to €30 million (R474 million) a year.
PSG are still hard at work trying to convince their star player to stay, though.
It now remains to be seen if the man who has scored 31 goals and provided 22 assists in all competitions so far in this club campaign will respect this reported verbal commitment or if PSG or another club will succeed in making him change his mind.
