Kylian Mbappe will play for PSG as Monaco and the French club reached a €150 million + one player agreement for the young attacker, according to L’Equipe and Le Parisien. When both French outlets are reporting the very same thing it probably means that the deal will be official quite soon.

Mbappe was reportedly going to join Real Madrid but MARCA and La Sexta’s reports proved to be inaccurate. Apparently, Los Blancos and Monaco reached a €180 million deal but Mbappe decided he wanted a big salary in his first contract with Madrid, something Florentino Perez wasn’t willing to accept. Mbappe will now get the big contract he wants.

It could be argued that Real Madrid don’t need Mbappe but at the same time he’s a huge talent who could be the next great striker. Los Blancos decided that their current roster will be good enough to compete for all three titles and that’s why Mbappe will finally wear PSG’s shirt.
