Paris Saint-Germain forward Kylian Mbappe has revealed that he will soon make an announcement about his future while adding that the process over his next move is ‘almost done’.
Mbappe’s future has been the talk of the town ever since his initial contractual talks with PSG broke down a few months back. And since his ongoing deal expires at the end of the season, Real Madrid have been thought to be the front-runners for his signing.
However, speaking about his future, the World Cup winner has confirmed that everything is now on track and he will make an official announcement soon.
“It will be known very soon, it’s almost done,” Mbappe said at the UNFP awards, where he was named the best player in Ligue 1 for the third consecutive season. “My decision is made, yes, almost.
“Why was I so slow? You have to respect all parties,” he added.
“I know that people expected a lot from me. That’s normal. I’m in a hurry too. But it’s not only about me But here it is, it’s finished right now, there are just some details left,” he concluded.
Journalist Fabrizio Romano says Real Madrid are very optimistic about striking a deal. However, the fact that PSG decided to increase the figures in their recent contract offer might end the story altogether.
Thanks to an improved offer, the team from France is now hoping for the young forward to continue for years to come and not leave on a free transfer.
On the other hand, the player’s mother, Fayza Lamary, recently branded the reports that her son has agreed to a two-year contract extension ‘completely false’. But the aforementioned comments have now given a sense of sheer optimism among the PSG supporters.
So, it remains to be seen where Mbappe will be playing his football next season, with an announcement on his future seemingly imminent.
Real Madrid midfielder set to sign a four-year contract with the club
In a major development, journalist Tomas Gonzalez-Martin is reporting that Real Madrid midfielder Dani Ceballos has decided to sign a new contract with the club and will pen a four-year deal to stay at the Santiago Bernabeu.
The 26-year-old midfielder’s current contract with Real Madrid stands to expire at the end of the season. And there had been conflicting reports over whether he would be offered a new deal by the Merengues.
But the Spaniard has managed to turn things around spectacularly in recent weeks, putting up top displays one after the other, helping Real Madrid emerge out of a poor run at the start of the new year.
It has convinced the club to hand him a new contract and it seems like things are moving swiftly on the renewal front for Ceballos.
Indeed, as per the update from Tomas Gonzalez-Martin, Real Madrid have decided to offer him a new four-year contract that will keep him at the club until the summer of 2027. It will see the midfielder receive an improved salary to the one that he is currently earning.
And Ceballos has decided to sign the deal. The former Real Betis ace has always maintained that he wants to continue at the Bernabeu beyond the current campaign. And the two parties could now be close to shaking hands on a new contract.
Ceballos joined Real Madrid from Real Betis back in 2017, arriving as one of the most talented young midfielders in La Liga. However, he found the going tough initially, thanks to the hegemony of the midfield trio of Luka Modric, Toni Kroos, and Casemiro.
The Spaniard spent a couple of seasons on loan at Arsenal before returning to the club in 2021. If not for an injury while away at the Tokyo Olympics, Ceballos could have been sold that year.
Having returned to action in January last year, he has slowly but surely gained importance in Carlo Ancelotti’s plans. And he is now set to be rewarded with a new four-year contract by the champions of Spain and Europe.
