The French sensation is reportedly being chased by Real Madrid, who are said to be hoping he will not extend his current contract with Paris Saint-Germain.
Mbappe's deal expires in 2022, with Los Blancos keen to get him either in 2021 for a cut price or on a free deal the following year.
The 21-year-old is also said to be keen on moving to the Santiago Bernabeu, where he could become the club's new superstar following in the footsteps of Cristiano Ronaldo.
However, PSG have not given up hope that Mbappe could stay at Parc des Princes beyond 2022.
L'Equipe has reported that the French giants, who were recently crowned 2019/20 champions after the season was cancelled, have offered Mbappe a new whopping deal.
It is claimed that Mbappe's annual salary would be increased to the €36 million (R733 million) Neymar is earning, which would see Mbappe become the joint-second biggest earner in football.
He would overtake Ronaldo, who is currently in third place with an annual salary of €31 million (R631 million) at Juventus.
According to the French publication, Mbappe is considering the offer and could commit his long-term future to the Ligue 1 champions despite Real's interest in securing his signature.
