One of Kylian Mbappe's Paris Saint-Germain teammates, Marco Verratti, has jokingly admitted to being "sick" of hearing the constant dialogue surrounding the Frenchman's potential move to Real Madrid.
Mbappe is able to leave the French giants in a month's time on a free transfer as his current deal with PSG comes to an end on 30 June.
With speculation having been rife regarding the forward's future as he is yet to officially commit to any club, it was reported earlier this week that the 2018 FIFA World Cup winner has agreed personal terms with Los Blancos.
Verratti, who has been playing with Mbappe for the past five years, has acknowledged that whatever decision the France forward makes in the coming days will have massive implications for the football world.
"It will have an impact on the club, whatever his decision will be. He's one of the best players on the planet right now so we all want him to stay here. But when I speak with him, it's more just to have a laugh," he told Le Parisien.
"In football, when you have something on your mind, if a decision is coming up, you don't talk about it. It's his decision, and I'm waiting for it like you are.
"When I was on my day off and I saw a notification saying that Kylian is in Madrid, it made me sick [laughs].
"Even if afterwards he told me: 'Don't worry, I was on holiday'. We're all waiting to find out."
Asked if he gives Mbappe advice about his future, the midfielder answered: "No, because he knows what I think.
"I wouldn't be a good advisor, in any case not an objective one. I wouldn't be thinking about his own good, but that of everyone here in Paris."
Mbappe has yet again had an incredible season, scoring 36 goals and providing 26 assists across all competitions, and was named Ligue 1's Player of the Season for the third consecutive year at the awards ceremony on Sunday night.
