Frenchman set to stay in Paris
Mbappe's contract with the Parisians expires next month, but the 23-year-old is set to announce his decision to stay with PSG this weekend, having reportedly agreed terms with both clubs before ultimately opting to remain with the Ligue 1 outfit.
The Frenchman's mother, Fayza Lamar, recently told Kora Plus that there is "no difference" between the two offers.
"We will not have new meetings to discuss Mbappe's future, these meetings are now over," Lamar said.
"Now we have found an agreement with both Real Madrid and PSG and the discussions are over because it is Kylian who has to choose now.
"The two offers, that of PSG and Real, are almost identical. At Real, my son will have control of his image rights. We will now await his decision.
"In the Real Madrid offer we have full power of image rights, on the other hand there is an economic balance that rewards this thing. In short, there is no difference between the two are similar."
