Sources have confirmed to ESPN that Kylian Mbappé has made the decision to join Real Madrid once his contract with Paris Saint-Germain expires this summer.

In a report last month, ESPN revealed that Mbappé had received a contract offer from Madrid. According to a source, it is anticipated that he will announce his decision to join the 14-time European champions next week.

Sources have indicated that Mbappé, aged 25, has not yet notified PSG or Real Madrid, but he has already made his decision.

His wish to represent France in the Olympic Games on home soil this summer will be a significant factor in the negotiations with Madrid.

Considering Mbappé's past reversal regarding a move to the Bernabéu in 2022, there remains the possibility that he might reconsider until the deal is officially signed by both parties.

Nevertheless, it appears that his transfer to Madrid is now poised to be realized this summer.

According to one source speaking to ESPN, PSG proposed a salary increase to Kylian Mbappé, who currently earns €72 million ($77.8m) gross annually. However, the French international turned down their offer.

Sources consulted by ESPN indicated that by opting to depart the club as a free agent, Mbappé will forgo bonuses totaling approximately €100 million.

According to a source, it is anticipated that Mbappé's wages at Madrid will be half of what he currently earns at PSG.

The French captain, who has long admired Bernabéu icons Zinedine Zidane and Cristiano Ronaldo, has harbored dreams of playing for Madrid since his youth. According to a source, he believes that now is the opportune moment in his career to make the move to the Spanish capital.
