Kylian Mbappe has reportedly made it known to Paris Saint-Germain that his long-term future lies elsewhere.
The 20-year-old has spent two seasons at PSG and his current contract is not due to expire until 2022.
Real Madrid have long been admirers of the France ace and are keeping tabs on his situation. Mbappe is one of PSG’s best-paid stars and, according to Marca, Real would be unable to compete with the Paris outfit in a straight wage war.
But the Spanish newspaper suggests that money is not Mbappe’s primary motivation and that he cares more about winning trophies and awards.
It is claimed that Mbappe has made it clear to PSG that he has no intention of extending his contract in Paris no matter how large their financial offer.
Real are unlikely to move for Mbappe this summer, having already spent big on Eden Hazard from Chelsea, who could get as much as £150m from the deal.
Mbappe scored 33 goals and provided seven assists in 29 Ligue 1 appearances last season. He added four goals and five assists in eight Champions League starts.
