According to Spanish journalist Guillem Balague, Florentino Pérez, the president of Real Madrid, told his players on Friday evening on the sidelines of the match against Real Betis (0-0, 38th day of La Liga) that Kylian Mbappé, at the end of his contract with PSG, did not sign in the Spanish capital.
The soap opera Kylian Mbappé is entering its very last hours. At the end of the contract on June 30 with PSG, the French striker must announce his long-awaited decision about his future this weekend. “We have an agreement with Real Madrid and another with Paris Saint-Germain. The negotiations are already over. Now Kylian has to choose”explained Friday Fayza Lamari, the mother of the 23-year-old player, in proposals attributed to the Egyptian media Kora Plus.
And while very serious sources (Saber Desfarges, Romain Molina, Di Marzio) have explained in recent hours that the strong trend was for an extension of Mbappé at PSG, a new clue dropped by Guillem Balague goes in this direction. According to this Spanish journalist, renowned for his reliability, Florentino Pérez, the president of Real Madrid, informed his players that the 2018 world champion was not signing in the Spanish capital. An announcement is made Friday evening in the locker room on the sidelines of the meeting of the 38th day of La Liga against Real Betis (0-0, the video summary here).
I have just been told that Florentino Pérez told the players tonight in the dressing room that Mbappé will NOT come
Let’s wait to hear what Mbappe has to say before confirming anything

In the process, this same Guillem Balague, however, played it safe and explained that he now had to wait for official communication from Kylian Mbappé before confirming anything. It shouldn’t take too long.
