With Kylian Mbappe entering the final six months of his contract at PSG, he is now free to negotiate with any club of his desire and reach an agreement over a free transfer in the summer.

Naturally, rumours about a move to Real Madrid have once again sprung up big time, with reports suggesting that Los Blancos intend to send an offer to the Frenchman swiftly and want an answer from him by mid-January.

PSG pushing hard for renewal

However, PSG are yet to give up on their hopes of offering Mbappe a new contract and keeping hold of him beyond this summer.

Indeed, as per Fabrizio Romano via Caught Offside, the Ligue 1 champions are still pushing the 25-year-old to pen a new contract while Real Madrid continue to be a serious option for him.

“Unfortunately, despite much being written about Mbappe’s situation, nothing is clear on this story yet. I’m not in the position to give any guarantee on when Mbappe will decide his future,” Romano said.

“The situation remains the same – Real Madrid are on it, PSG are pushing to sign new deal, and it’s absolutely open. Again, I keep repeating on Mbappe; it’s one to follow day by day. In my view, any predictions now make no sense.”

So, as things stand, everything is open as far as Mbappe is concerned and it does not seem like a decision is imminent.

Recent reports even suggested that PSG are optimistic about tying down the 2018 FIFA World Cup winner to a new contract.

Meanwhile, Liverpool have also emerged as serious contenders to sign Mbappe on a Bosman deal in the summer. As such, it is not set in stone that he will end up signing for Real Madrid.

Real Madrid will sign off on their successful La Liga campaign today with a fixture against Real Betis at the Santiago Bernabeu.

The game, being seen as a final preparation for the UEFA Champions League final against Borussia Dortmund, sees manager Carlo Ancelotti field his strongest possible lineup.

All eyes will obviously be on the retiring Toni Kroos, who bids goodbye to the Bernabeu in what will be his final home game as a Real Madrid player.

The German international starts in the centre of the park alongside Federico Valverde, while Eduardo Camavinga slots in as the No. 6.

Meanwhile, Real Madrid captain, Nacho Fernandez, also starts in what could be his last game at the Bernabeu as well.

Nacho pairs up with Antonio Rudiger in defence, flanked by the full-back pairing of Dani Carvajal and Ferland Mendy. Thibaut Courtois starts in goal ahead of Andriy Lunin and Kepa Arrizabalaga.

Up front, Vinicius Jr. starts in attack, partnering up with Rodrygo Goes. Top scorer Jude Bellingham occupies the attacking midfield role for Real Madrid.
