Paris Saint Germain star forward, Kylian Mbappe has reportedly reached an agreement with the Spanish side Real Madrid.

Marca, quoting German publication BILD, reported that the agreement would see the want-away France international join Los Blancos next summer on a free transfer.

Recall that PSG rejected a mouthwatering bid in the region of €200-220m for Mbappe last summer and risk losing him for free on June 30 time when the former Monaco star's contract expires.

Efforts to get him to commit to the Parisian club have been futile as Mbappe appeared to have turned down all of the club's renewal offers amid interest from Real Madrid.

However, Bild reported that the 23-year-old will become the highest-paid player in the world as he is expected to earn 50 million euros gross per season at the Estadio Santiago Bernabeu.

The German publication also stressed that the Ligue 1 club have already given up on their efforts to extend Mbappe's contract while Marca added that nothing will be made official before the Champions League last-16 tie between Real Madrid and PSG is over.

Meanwhile, Madrid right-back, Dani Carvajal has maintained optimism that Mabape will wear the club's famous shirt next season.

Speaking ahead of both teams' Champions League's last 16 this month, the Spaniard gave his opinion of Mbappe during an interview on Onda Cero's 'Radioestadio noche' programme.

He said, "Mbappe is a very, very good player whose name has been heard for our team for many years.

"It seems that his contract [with PSG] is ending and it could be that in the future he will wear our shirt.

"But I'm telling you, right now he is a PSG player and they are our rivals, so the only thought I have is to defend him well [on the pitch]. If I play and he plays, we get to play on the same flank."

PSG will host Real Madrid on February 15, with the return leg scheduled to take place on March 9 at the Estadio Santiago Bernabeu.
