Report: Kylian Mbappe given July 19 deadline to make a final decision by PSG as Real Madrid wait


Valdebebas’ frustration with Kylian Mbappe’s situation is understandable. Real Madrid have been openly pursuing the youngster’s signature for years and the player seems to be spoiling the only chance that looks golden.

It is not for lack of desire to come to Madrid on the part of the player. Mbappe is understandably keen to maximize his monetary gain from PSG, which he cannot claim if he openly announces his desire to leave this summer.

PSG themselves are disgusted by the player’s antics and have set a deadline for Mbappe to make his intentions clear, according to AS reports.

As Nasser Al-Khelaifi revealed in a recent press conference, there is no chance of the youngster leaving PSG on a free transfer in the near future. They have to choose between two options – renew or leave by July 19.

The new deadline leaves the French superstar with less than two weeks to make a decisive call on his future. A departure this year or next summer seems a given, but with the deadline looming he must make a decision soon.

News of such an ultimatum comes as music to Florentino Perez & Co., as the board have halted all negotiations over other options in anticipation of Mbappe. A clear idea will help them lead the negotiations to the right result.

A move for the French winger is said to cost Los Blancos more than €200m including bonuses. They have the money ready and all that remains is the green from the player and the Ligue 1 champions.

At the moment, the coming week will be critical for both French sides to reach a monetary agreement on pending bonuses and an immediate exit.
