Real were expected to sign Mbape as a free agent after his contract expired.
However, PSG have been determined to keep the 23-year-old striker, who has been in sensational form this season, and now seems to have won that battle.
Earlier this week, the pendulum seemed to swing firmly in the direction of Madrid, and it was reported that talks between Mbape and Qatari owner PSG had not affected the striker and that he wanted to join Los Blancos.
Mbape’s mother and agent confirmed this on Saturday (AEST). agreements were reached with both clubs and a decision will be made over the weekend.
On Saturday, several publications in France, including The Team and The Parisiansas well as ESPN reported that the former Monaco striker will remain in place.
No details regarding the duration of Mbape’s new contract have been reported, but it was speculated that the French star could confirm his decision at the Parc des Princes after PSG’s final match against Metz on Sunday (AEST).
Mbape is the club’s second top scorer in its history, after Edinson Cavani, ahead of Zlatan Ibrahimovic when he scored his 157th time in a PSG shirt earlier this season.
This news will be a blow to Madrid, which next week will meet Liverpool in the UEFA Champions League final, ironically the match, which will take place in the French capital.
Los Blancos has also been linked with Borussia Dortmund star Erling Holland, but he has decided to move to Manchester City, and it seems Madrid president Florentino Perez will have to wait for his next Galaxy.
