French star player Kylian Mbappe says his mind is almost made up whether to stay at Paris Saint-Germain (PSG) or leave the French champions for Real Madrid.
“Yes, yes almost” Mbappe replied when asked about whether he had made a choice yet after picking up his third straight best player of the season award in Paris on Sunday.
The waiting to see whether the 23-year-old moves to the Spanish capital or stays with PSG to help them in their protracted quest to land the Champions League “is almost over” he added.
Mbappe, French World Cup winner plans to announce his decision before France play Denmark in the Nations League on June 3.
Refusing to speak further despite being given ample opportunity to do so at the awards ceremony Mbappe thanked “PSG, which enabled me to be here, my teammates and coach.”
Mbappe added: “My story goes on, I keep on winning, I’m never satisfied, and that’s good.”
Also attending the awards dinner was his PSG captain Marquinhos whose only comment on the issue keeping PSG fans and their Real counterparts awake at night was: “I hope that next season he will win this trophy again.”
Last week a French newspaper reported that the Mbappe had agreed in principle to remain at PSG for up to another three years.
This was quickly denied by his mother.
Mbappe has made no secret of his desire to play one day for Real Madrid, who are in the Champions League final after securing a 35th Spanish title.
But PSG, who have won the Ligue 1 title for a record-equalling tenth time but angered their hardcore supporters with their limp exit to Real Madrid in the last 16 of the Champions League want Mbappe to stay in France.
