Real Madrid set Paris Saint-Germain attacker Kylian Mbappe a deadline of January 15 to come to an agreement with the club, according to a report.

Real Madrid have reportedly set Kylian Mbappe a deadline to come to an agreement with the club.

The France international's future is again the subject of much speculation, as he is unlikely to sign a new deal with Paris Saint-Germain, meaning that he could join Real Madrid on a free transfer next summer.

Los Blancos had been expecting to sign the France international on a free in 2022, but he ultimately signed a new contract in Paris, which is due to expire next June.

According to AS, Real Madrid are confident that Mbappe will not renew his deal with Luis Enrique's side, but they are not prepared to enter into another saga when it comes to the forward's future.

Carlo Ancelotti's side have allegedly set a deadline of January 15 to come to an agreement with the attacker, and they will move on if terms cannot be agreed by that point.

The report claims that, should a deal for Mbappe fail to materialise, the club will target Manchester City forward Erling Haaland.

Real Madrid are believed to have the funds in place to make a big-money signing next summer, and Haaland's future has also been the subject of speculation in recent weeks.

The Norway international's agent recently failed to rule out a departure for the 23-year-old next year, and there is believed to be a €200m (£175m) release clause in his current deal.

Haaland has again been in outstanding form for Pep Guardiola's side during the 2023-24 campaign, scoring 19 goals and registering five assists in 21 appearances in all competitions.

Mbappe, meanwhile, has 18 goals and two assists in 18 appearances for PSG this season, including 15 goals and two assists in 13 Ligue 1 outings.

There have recently been suggestions that a number of Premier League clubs, including Liverpool, are keeping a close eye on the World Cup winner's situation in Paris.

However, it is understood that Liverpool are not currently planning to move for Mbappe, with Real Madrid remaining the favourites for his signature.

Due to his position as a potential free agent, Mbappe would be in a strong position to ask for enormous wages and also a substantial signing-on fee.

However, PSG have allegedly not yet given up when it comes to a new contract for the former Monaco youngster, who has scored 230 goals and registered 100 assists in 278 appearances for his current side.
