Happening now!! Mbappe in crunch talks with Monaco

The future of Kylian Mbappe is set to be decided in the next few days, with the player to choose between remaining with Monaco for one more year on an improved contract, or leaving the club to join one of Europe's biggest sides in Wednesday's crunch talks with the French Champions.

As things stand, Real Madrid and Paris Saint-Germain are the favourites to sign the forward should he leave, but before a decision is reached his family are set to meet with the club's vice-president, Vadim Vasilyev.

Monaco are planning on presenting a new contract offer to Mbappe, which they are hopeful he will accept and continue there for another year.

With the World Cup coming up in the summer of 2018, the 18-year-old wants to play as much as possible next season.

Despite his age, this move could break the world transfer record, although Real and PSG are still reluctant to meet the asking price of 120 million euros.
