Kylian Mbappé, 23-year-old Paris Saint-Germain striker whose contract ends in June 2022, has still not made a choice for his future. So the rumors continue, with Real Madrid generally the favorites in this matter.
This Thursday evening, Le Parisien assured that an extension is on the right track with an agreement in principle which has been found, but his mother Fayza Lamari reacted quickly to deny it, so the vagueness continues.
This Sunday, La Gazzetta Dello Sport takes stock with a decision that should arrive next week. There is also the idea of an agreement with Real for image rights (although it was a blockage mentioned again this morning), a PSG still in the race, and political pressure.
Con il sempre informato @agrandesso su @Gazzetta_it abbiamo fatto il punto sulla situazione #Mbappe. 1. Decisione prevista per la prossima settimana. 2. Accordo col Madrid per i diritti d’immagine. 3. PSG ancora pienamente in corsa. 4. Pressioni politiche https://t.co/zIV61ONYtb

Of course, we call for great caution since this is a new round of this file without the slightest concrete element. And this Italian newspaper is far from being the most reliable about the transfer window in general, let alone about Mbappé or PSG. Especially since in the last hours, there was more talk of a problem between Real Madrid and the striker in terms of these famous image rights.
As for the timing of the decision, we have also seen many assertions. We will therefore still wait to be certain. The wisest is clear, we must remain patient until an official announcement.
