The PSG President Nasser al-Khelaifi, was determined to keep the forward and turned down offers of €160m and €170m from Madrid over the past week.

Mbappe’s current contract at the Parc des Princes expires at the end of the season, which means he will be free to negotiate with Madrid, or any other club, in January.

PSG sporting director Leonardo confirmed last week that Mbappe wanted to leave but they would not sell him in the final week of the window. “The official line is that at the moment, PSG will not accept the offer at the moment and Real Madrid will not increase the offer,” Leonardo said. “In the short term, they will keep him.
