Kylian Mbappé has received an offer to join Real Madrid as a free agent next summer and another to renew his contract with Paris Saint-Germain, but the France international remains undecided on his future, sources have told ESPN.
One source told ESPN that Madrid have asked Mbappé for a definitive answer in the coming weeks to plan for the 2024-25 season but other sources close to the forward say he does not actually have a deadline to make a decision.
Mbappé, who is out of contract with PSG at the end of the season, has been free to negotiate with other clubs since Jan. 1.
Madrid have tried and failed to sign Mbappé in recent seasons, and sources have told ESPN that Madrid’s contract offer this time is lower than those they have made in the past. However, other sources said the offer would still make him the club’s highest earner.
A source told ESPN that Madrid are not offering as much as they were willing to in the past, with the club not wanting to pay him significantly more than established stars in the squad such as Vinícius Júnior and Jude Bellingham, who sources said earn around €10.5 million ($11.4m) net per-season.
