The French newspaper, Le Parisien, reported, Thursday, that Paris Saint-Germain star Kylian Mbappe will decide where he wants to play in the coming seasons.

The star has been closely associated with Real Madrid for a long time, but if we are to believe Le Parisien, Mbappé has now opted to extend his contract with PSG.
Responds to allegations
The attacking player is said to have agreed with the club on a two-year contract.
According to Le Parisien newspaper, the value of the new contract is around 970,000 euros per week and the player will receive a signing bonus of 100 million euros.
The parties must agree to such an agreement, claimed, but not signed.
Shortly after Le Parisien dropped his case, the reaction came from the Mbappe camp.
There is no agreement with Paris Saint-Germain or any other club. Discussions about Kylian’s future continue quietly, until he can make the best decision. Mbappe’s mother, Fayza Al-Amari, says this respects all parties involved, according to well-informed journalist Fabrizio Romano.
Mbappe’s original contract with the French club expires this summer, and it has long been seen as unrealistic for him to continue there.
However, earlier this spring, there was speculation that it might be appropriate to stay at PSG and it now appears that this might be an opportunity.
Club director Mauricio Pochettino, who himself faces an uncertain future at Paris Saint-Germain, recently stated that he was 100 per cent sure Mbappe and himself would stay.
The 23-year-old joined Paris Saint-Germain in 2017. He spent one season on loan at the club from Monaco, before the move became permanent the following summer.
So far, he has played 214 matches and scored 167 goals for the club. This season, Mbappe has been in good shape and has scored 35 goals in 43 games so far.
Five league titles
During his time at Paris Saint-Germain, he won four French Ligue 1 titles. He also won the French First Division with Monaco in the 2016/2017 season.
In 2020, the striker was pivotal when PSG went to the Champions League final, but ended up losing Bayern Munich in that match.
With the national team, the 23-year-old became the world champion in 2018.

Mbappe is perhaps the most promising young player in the world, and speculation about where he will play next season has been going on for a long time.
The current Paris Saint-Germain coach is expected to be sacked after the season. Zinedine Zidane is among those associated with the job and Mbappe has previously stated that the former star is one of his idols.
