Barcelona is reportedly ‘convinced’ that Paris Saint-Germain attacker Kylian Mbappe is heading for Real Madrid.
The France international’s future remains the subject of much speculation, with his contract in the French capital due to expire at the end of June.
PSG are desperately attempting to convince the attacker to sign a new deal in Paris, but it appears increasingly likely that he will be leaving Mauricio Pochettino’s side on a free transfer at the end of the season.
Real Madrid have long been considered as the favourites for the Frenchman, and according to GOAL, Barcelona are expecting him to make the move to Bernabeu ahead of the 2022-23 campaign.
“It would be very difficult for Florentino [Perez] to lose Mbappe now. They must have signed something,” the report quotes a senior Barcelona official as saying.
The 23-year-old has again been in impressive form for his French club during the 2021-22 campaign, scoring 24 times and registering 17 assists in 34 appearances in all competitions.
Overall, the attacker has netted 156 goals and contributed 78 assists in 205 outings for PSG since making the move from Monaco, initially on loan, in 2017.
