Mbappe’s future has been the subject of intense transfer speculation in the recent months as the French star reaches the end of his current PSG contract.
The 23-year-old is into the final two months of his deal at the Parc des Princes with no update his future with the Parisians.
According to Spanish football expert Guillem Balague, via BBC Sport, the change comes due to his desire to re-negotiate a free transfer switch to Real Madrid, based on PSG’s showdown offer.
Me han contado los “nuevos elementos” que hacen “dudar” (sí, con comillas) a Mbappé. Para nada quiere decir que haya decidido quedarse, pero el PSG ofrece €150m por dos temporadas.

Balague stated PSG are willing to offer Mbappe a €150m signing on bonus, plus a €21m annual salary, to sign a two year extension this summer.
Real Madrid are rumoured to be open to a possible €25m yearly wage but will not match PSG’s extra fee.
