Mbappe says decision ‘almost’ made over PSG future

PARIS (AFP) – Kylian Mbappe said he has “almost” made up his mind about whether to stay at Paris Saint-Germain (PSG) or leave the French champions for Real Madrid.

“Yes, yes almost,” he replied when quizzed 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.

He plans to “announce” his decision before France play Denmark in the Nations League on June 3.

Refusing to divulge anything further despite being given ample opportunity to do so at the awards ceremony he thanked “PSG, which enabled me to be here, my teammates and coach”.

He added, “My story goes on, I keep on winning, I’m never satisfied, and that’s good.”

Last week a French newspaper reported that the French World Cup winner 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, 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 10th time but angered their hardcore supporters with their limp exit to Real in the last 16 of the Champions League, are battling to hold onto their biggest asset.
