Paris Saint-Germain are exhausting every avenue to retain Kylian Mbappe, but the expectation is he will soon confirm his decision to become Real Madrid's marquee signing.
The French champions have offered the 23-year-old a pay package understood to be double his current terms and around £4m a month, making him the highest earner in the game.
An extension would also secure a mammoth signing-on figure in the region of £100m, and includes concessions over image rights as well as bonuses for goals, Ballon d'Or honours, and Champions League success.
PSG are aware Mbappe would earn significantly less at Real and that finances are not driving his decision.
They have spent 18 months trying to convince him that he is the "heartbeat" of the club, their most prized asset, and the player they consider the representation of what they want to stand for: born in Paris, a global phenomenon, an unstoppable force in the game
