Mbappe is out of contract at the Parc des Princes next summer and could sign a pre-contract agreement with a foreign club as early as January.

Now the World Cup winner has revealed he is excited for ‘great challenges’ that lie ahead in his career.

He told TNT Sports: “I have had five extraordinary years, I have taken advantage of every moment and I continue to do so.

“Now there are many things, great challenges and I have already spoken about that.”

When asked about his future at PSG, Mbappe replied: “I am here, I’m still here and will be for this season.”

With Real clear favourites to sign the 22-year-old forward, there are reports he is readying demands for any contract he signs at the La Liga giants.

According to Spanish outlet AS, Mbappe wants a ‘guarantee’ that he would be allowed to represent France at his home Olympics.

Mbappe published a letter in French newspaper L’Equipe last week as the nation marked 1,000 days until the start of the games.

And he stated he wants to be part of it and play for France after being refused permission to do so at the recent Olympics in Tokyo.

He wrote PSG ‘cut the grass from under my feet’ and didn’t allow him to jet out to Japan in the summer.

Real will inevitably be reluctant to allow the clause with the Games scheduled to take place just weeks after the conclusion of Euro 2024.

They may not have much of a choice though, with Mbappe’s ‘heart set’ on turning out for his country at the Olympics.
