Kylian Mbappé will decide timing of Real Madrid announcement

According to Marca, Kylian Mbappé (25) has a timescale in mind for when he will announce his decision to join Real Madrid. 

Mbappé has reportedly already informed Paris Saint-Germain president Nasser Al-Khelaifi, as well as his teammates, that he will be leaving at the end of the season when his contract with the club finishes. However, no party involved in this long-running saga has publicly confirmed what is widely suspected to be true. 

The French captain in the most recent international break hinted at a general timescale for when his future will be confirmed, telling reporters at the end of March, “I will be focused on the France national team when I arrive at the Euros. I think that [my future] will be sorted before then.”

Champions League key to Kylian Mbappé’s decision

Marca states that Mbappé has planned his departure around the future involvement of both Real Madrid and PSG in the Champions League. As long as both clubs are in the competition there will be no announcement from the star player. 

However, if neither club makes it to the final then his decision will likely be finally announced on that weekend (the 18th to 19th of May). Regardless of what happens, Mbappé has informed Real Madrid according to the Spanish paper that he wants to play the Euros without any speculation or pressure over his future.
