Kylian Mbappe has conveyed significant news regarding his future to Paris Saint-Germain amidst escalating rumours of his desire to fulfil his dream by joining Real Madrid.

With Mbappe's current contract with PSG set to expire at the end of the season, the French club has made multiple attempts to secure the future of their invaluable asset, all to no avail.

Mbappe to leave PSG

However, according to transfer market expert Fabrizio Romano, the 25-year-old has formally informed the club of his intentions, signalling his imminent move to the Spanish capital.

Fabrizio reports that Mbappe has informed PSG president Nasser Al Khelaifi of his decision to depart the club as a free agent.

Furthermore, the report suggests that Real Madrid remains steadfast in their pursuit of the Mbappe deal, maintaining full confidence in its realisation after years of setbacks.

Mbappe's love affair with Real Madrid

It's worth noting that Mbappe was on the brink of joining Los Blancos in 2022, only to make a stunning turnaround and extend his contract with PSG, much to the disappointment of Madrid supporters.

However, it appears this summer will mark a different outcome, as the Spanish capital club seems poised to secure their long-desired transfer target.

Mbappe remains fully committed to leaving Paris at the end of the season, a decision he has formally communicated to the club president.

Mbappe's stint with PSG

While Mbappe's future destination remains uncertain, with several clubs vying for his signature and Real Madrid being the frontrunners, one thing is undeniable: Mbappe will depart PSG as the club's all-time leading goal scorer.

With over 250 appearances for the Parisian side, Mbappe has amassed an impressive tally of 243 goals and counting, along with 105 assists, according to Transfermarkt.

Since joining the club, the 2017 Golden Boy award recipient has secured numerous titles, including all domestic honours in France. The UEFA Champions League remains the sole missing piece in his extensive collection of trophies.

Is Mbappe open to joining Arsenal?

In previous Mbappe transfer news, Sports Brief reported that the PSG superstar is rumoured to be considering a remarkable transfer to Arsenal.

Despite Spanish giants Real Madrid being the frontrunners for his signature, there's emerging competition from the Premier League.

Liverpool is also viewed as a credible destination for the 25-year-old. Nevertheless, Arsenal is reportedly another viable option, with sources suggesting that Mbappe would be open to joining the North London club.
