Kylian Mbappe has yet to agree a contract with Paris Saint-Germain or any other club, according to the French superstar’s mother.
With Mbappe’s contract in the French capital due to expire in June, the 23-year-old has been heavily linked with a move to Champions League finalists Real Madrid.
Mbappe has scored 35 goals and provided 19 assists for Mauricio Pochettino’s team in all competitions this term, both club-high figures. PSG won the Ligue 1 title in dominant fashion but fell short against Madrid in the Champions League in March.
French newspaper Le Parisien reported on its website on Thursday that Mbappe was close to reaching an agreement in principle to extend his stay in Paris until June 2024.
Fayza Lamary, the 2018 World Cup winner’s mother, later moved to refute suggestions Mbappe has decided anything about his future.
“There is no agreement in principle with Paris Saint-Germain [or any other club],” she wrote on Twitter.
“Discussions around Kylian’s future are continuing in a climate of great serenity to allow him to make the best choice, with respect for all parties.”
Mbappe scored his 130th and 131st Ligue 1 career goals on his last outing as PSG drew 3-3 with Strasbourg, making him the second highest goalscorer in the competition this century after Edinson Cavani, who scored 138 times in the league for the Paris outfit.
The forward has also scored 26 goals following a fast break in Ligue 1 since making his PSG debut in September 2017, more than double the amount recorded by any other player in the top five European leagues during that time. Mohamed Salah has 12 for Liverpool.
@KMbappe, who scored two against Strasbourg, remains in first place not only in the top scorers chart but also top with the most assists in Ligue 1! https://t.co/DNMgG1ex5Z pic.twitter.com/PnB4j9QOjm
