Mbappe yet to make decision on PSG future amid Madrid interest


Kylian Mbappe has yet to communicate a decision on his future amid ongoing interest from Real Madrid, according to Paris Saint-Germain boss Luis Enrique.

Mbappe has entered the final six months of the bumper contract he signed with PSG in 2022, when he surprised the football world by rejecting Madrid after appearing set to join Los Blancos.

Last year, Mbappe told PSG he would not extend his contract beyond the end of this season, which led to the club accepting a £258million bid for his services from Saudi Pro League side Al-Hilal.

Mbappe rejected that move and was subsequently reintegrated by PSG. However, he is yet to pen a contract extension and reportedly still enjoys warm relations with senior figures in Madrid.

Los Blancos are keen to bring Mbappe in on a free transfer at the end of this campaign, though there was speculation that they wanted the Frenchman to commit to a move by mid-January.

That deadline passed without any announcement concerning Mbappe’s future, and Luis Enrique is still none the wiser as to where the forward will play his football next season.

Asked by a reporter whether Mbappe had informed the club of any decision regarding his future on Thursday, the Spaniard said: “No. There’s no need to translate that question.”

Nordi Mukiele is another player to be linked with a move away from the Parc des Princes, with Chelsea reportedly interested in the versatile defender, who has only made four league starts this season.

Luis Enrique was non-committal when asked about the former RB Leipzig man, saying: “There are some players who have had very little playing time, like Mukiele.

“What will happen in the future? I don’t know. If anyone can change the situation, it’s me. I remain open to the question of using these players according to my ideas.”
