Kylian Mbappe, the striker for Paris St-Germain, has agreed to transfer to Real Madrid in the upcoming summer.

At 25 years old, the captain of France has informed PSG of his intention to depart the club as his contract approaches expiration in June.

While Kylian Mbappe has yet to finalize a contract with Real Madrid, the announcement of the deal might be delayed until after the current season's Champions League, when the two clubs are no longer in contention to face each other.

As a World Cup winner, Mbappe holds the record as PSG's top goalscorer, boasting an impressive tally of 244 goals.

Mbappe aimed to resolve his future before March, initiating discussions with PSG president Nasser Al-Khelaifi on February 13, just before training, announcing his decision to depart for Real Madrid.

Following reports of his departure, Mbappe was excluded from the starting lineup for Saturday's match against Nantes. However, he made a significant impact off the bench, scoring a penalty as PSG secured a 14-point lead atop Ligue 1.

In his impending move to Real Madrid, Mbappe is anticipated to sign a lucrative five-year contract, with an annual salary of 15 million euros (£12.8 million) and a signing-on bonus of 150 million euros (£128 million) spread over five years. Additionally, he will retain a portion of his image rights.

Real Madrid manager Carlo Ancelotti has already devised a plan for Mbappe's integration into the team, envisioning a role for him on the left of center, alongside Jude Bellingham playing deeper and Vinicius Jr on the left wing. Should Luka Modric depart this summer, Mbappe is poised to inherit the coveted number 10 shirt, mirroring his role for the French national team.

Currently, PSG holds a 2-0 advantage over Real Sociedad after the first leg of their Champions League last-16 encounter, while Real Madrid leads RB Leipzig 1-0.

Mbappe clinched the French title with Monaco before his 2017 move to PSG at 18, initially on loan before a £165.7 million transfer.

With 244 goals and 93 assists in 291 games, he's been pivotal in PSG's five Ligue 1 title wins. Despite initially planning to leave on a free, he extended his contract by two years but declined an extra year, leading to his exclusion from PSG's pre-season tour and a refusal to entertain a £259 million bid from Al-Hilal.
