PSG sporting director Leonardo has chosen to remain coy over the future of the club's star striker.
Real Madrid have been given a boost in their pursuit of Kylian Mbappe after Paris Saint-Germain sporting director Leonardo refused to confirm whether the striker will remain at the club.
The 20-year-old, who has established himself as one of the most prolific forwards in world football since his £165.7m move from Monaco to PSG in 2017, is under contract at the Parc des Princes until 2022.
His meteoric rise to the top has inevitably attracted the attention of Real Madrid, with president Florentino Perez reportedly keen to secure his signature before the close of the transfer window.
Leonardo, in his most recent interview, suggested Mbappe may not sign a new contract at PSG, which could open the door for a move to Los Blancos.
"I never make promises," he told Le Parisien. "For two reasons: the first is that I am not the person who does everything at this club; the second, I do not want to pluck promises out of thin air, without being certain I can fulfil them."
"The only thing that interests me is stuff that is concrete, that is today."
Mbappe finished as the top scorer in Ligue 1 last season with 33 goals in just 29 appearances.
PSG are understandably determined to keep hold of their star player, but much depends on whether or not he is willing to sign a new contract.
Mbappe hinted in May that he may look to leave the French champions, talking of a potential “new project”.
"It’s a very important moment for me, I come to a turning point in my career," he said. "I have discovered a lot here, and I feel it is maybe the moment to have more responsibility."
"I hope that can perhaps be at Paris Saint-Germain, that would be a great pleasure. Or maybe elsewhere with a new project."
