Mbappe's contract was due to expire next month and he looked destined to sign for Madrid in the summer - with the Spanish giants in constant contact with the 23-year-old during the season.

However, the World Cup winner is now set to confirm his decision to agree a new three-year deal with the Parisians after Saturday's Ligue 1 clash with Metz.

Tebas slams 'insulting' PSG

The Frenchman's decision to reject a move to Madrid, and a sign a lucrative contract extension with PSG, has angered LaLiga president Tebas, who accused the French club of being an 'insult to football'.

"What PSG’s doing by renewing Mbappe with large sum after giving losses of €700m in recent seasons and having more than €600m of salary bill, is an insult to football," Tebas said.

"They are as dangerous as the Super League."

PSG's Sporting Director Leonardo is expected to leave the club and be replaced by Luis Campos, who helped assemble the Monaco team at which Mbappe burst onto the scene with and won the Ligue 1 title in 2017.

According to reports, manager Mauricio Pochettino will also depart after another Champions League failure this season.
