Foot Mercato journalist Santi Aouna claim the 2018 World Cup winner reached an arrangement with the Spanish giants “in recent days”.

Aouna insists Mbappe, 25, WILL join Real next season.

Manchester United and especially Liverpool had been talked up as possible destinations for the France icon.

It’s also understood Mbappe has rejected at least one world-record offer from Saudi Arabia.

But now Real’s persistent pursuit of their dream target could be close to becoming reality.

Mbappe is entering the last six months of his PSG contract – meaning a deal with another club was always likely.

The 75-cap star, who hit a hat-trick in defeat against Argentina at the 2022 World Cup final, had the option to extend his stay in Paris for another year.

But as long ago as last summer he wrote to club chiefs saying he had “no intention” of doing that.

At first he was exiled from the French champions’ pre-season tour.

And it’s thought PSG then accepted a £259million bid from Al-Hilal – which Mbappe turned down.

But he then knuckled down to show some of his best-ever Ligue 1 form – which could now be rewarded in the way he, but maybe not his current club, wanted.
