The 2018 World Cup champion has a mere six months remaining on his contract with Paris Saint-Germain and has yet to commit to an extension.
There have been widespread speculations that, should he leave France, he might join LaLiga leaders Real Madrid.
However, The Times reports that a move to Spain is now uncertain as the 25-year-old is not impressed with Real’s attempt to pressure him into signing a pre-contract.
Real Madrid is said to have set a deadline of January 15 for Mbappe to agree to terms for a summer transfer, a move that has reportedly displeased the former Monaco star.
He has communicated to friends that he won’t let Real dictate his future, and currently, he has rejected their proposal.
Considering his options, Mbappe is now exploring the possibility of a move to the Premier League as he contemplates his future.
Liverpool has shown admiration for the player, and there is a history of the Merseyside club coming close to signing him in the past.
Mbappe has previously disclosed that he held talks with Liverpool before ultimately joining PSG in 2017.
In the meantime, he has also disclosed that he came close to joining Arsenal, a revelation that aligns with Mikel Arteta’s efforts to strengthen his attacking lineup.
When questioned by French media about his plans for the upcoming season, Mbappe remained elusive about his future, stating, “No. I’m very, very motivated for this year.”
“It is very important. As I said, we have got titles to go after and we have already taken one.”
“After that, I haven’t made up my mind yet. I have not made a choice.”
Despite the uncertainty surrounding his next move, Mbappe has displayed outstanding form once again this season, contributing 22 goals in 23 games across all competitions.
In a remarkable showcase of his talent, Mbappe secured a hat-trick during PSG’s 9-0 victory in the Coupe de France against Revel, a team from the sixth tier of French football.
This impressive feat takes Mbappe’s tally to 30 goals in the competition for PSG, establishing him as the club’s all-time leading scorer in the tournament.
