The 18-year-old will make his decision given the competitiveness of the Monegasque group for the coming season.
Bar any surprises, Mbappe will sign a six-year contract worth €7 million per campaign, with the official announcement expected by the end of the week. Zidane, when asked about Mbappe last week, said that the team was short by one attacker following the Spaniard's move to London.
"Let him develop, do not put too much pressure on him and if he is as good as we hope he will be, he will move when the time is right".
This deal would carry many implications for Real Madrid.
It must also be noted that Guardiola reportedly met the striker in person before approving his club's pursuit.
The Spanish forward struggled for game time last season and has now lost his No.9 shirt to Alexandre Lacazette. "I'll back our players to the hilt".
Alvaro Morata of Chelsea looks on during the International Champions Cup 2017 match between Bayern Munich and Chelsea FC at National Stadium on July 25, 2017 in Singapore. From a Real Madrid side, Los Blancos could also likely not afford a deal for Mbappé without selling a top talent in order to raise funds. He very nearly joined the club. Leonardo Jardim is going to have to watch all this with a masterly hand. It is therefore possible to see him tread the fields of the next Ligue 1 Conforama. You build a golden generation and you sell it at golden prices. Instead, they have been depleted.
They are somehow making that squad even better.
So are they done?
Kylian's father, Wilfred Mbappe, who has Cameroonian and Nigerian roots, was once a refuge, who migrated to France for greener pastures.
However, there may be hope for them. Yet, it is no secret that Fabinho (PSG, Atletico Madrid, Manchester United) and Lemar (Arsenal) would rather leave.
