Report: Mbappe Reconsidering Future

Paris Saint-Germain superstar Kylian Mbappe may well have changed his mind on the destiny of his immediate future, but his suitors remain optimistic.

Transfer Update: Messi

It now looks as though the 2018 FIFA World Cup winner, whose current contract expires in June, has had a change of heart and is open to staying in his native France. According to ESPN, Mbappe is "more receptive than ever towards the possibility of staying in the French capital".

It was reported earlier this week that the Ligue 1 leaders are prepared to make the Frenchman the club's highest earner, above Lionel Messi, Neymar and Sergio Ramos.

It is a combination of this wage increase and, perhaps more importantly, the fact that Mbappe is becoming an integral leader in a dressing room full of stars that he might consider PSG's proposition.

Across all competitions so far this season, the former Monaco forward has scored 19 goals and assisted a further 15 strikes to solidify his rank as the team's main man. 

Prior to the commencement of the 2021/22 campaign, Real Madrid and Paris Saint-Germain were embroiled in a tug-of-war for Mbappe's services as the French giants repelled serious advances from Los Blancos.

The 23-year-old has previously batted away extension offers from the Parisians, but he may now have made a U-turn on that decision.

The Spanish club, however, reportedly remains unfazed, with president Florentino Perez confident of securing Mbappe's signature as a free agent at the end of the season, despite reports suggesting that PSG could look to appoint Zinedine Zidane, whom Mbappe is understood to have idolised growing up, as their manager later this year.  

Here is where Mbappe currently ranks among the best-paid players at PSG:
