At their meeting with Kylian Mbappe on Tuesday, the Emir of Qatar, Sheikh Tamim bin Hamad Al Thani, is said to have decided against making a last-ditch attempt to retain the attacker from Paris Saint-Germain.

The Ligue 1 winners, who are down to Mbappe’s final few months of contract, have been notified of his intention to depart when his contract expires at the end of the current campaign.

Since the beginning of January, the 25-year-old has been free to negotiate pre-contract conditions with international teams. It is now said that he has given Real Madrid his word that he will be joining them at the Bernabeu this summer.

Before learning earlier this month that Mbappe intended to leave, PSG had always held out hope of getting him to sign a longer contract. Now, head coach Luis Enrique has all but confirmed Mbappe’s impending departure.

Enrique acknowledged that PSG will have to get used to playing without Mbappe as he approaches his ideal Blancos switch, after benching the World Cup champion for their 2-0 victory over Nantes two weekends ago and again bringing him off for Sunday’s 1-1 draw with Rennes.

When Mbappe was expected to go for Real Madrid on a free transfer, PSG was able to persuade him to stay for an additional two years in 2022.

However, last summer, Mbappe declined to take advantage of the option to extend his contract until 2025.

Prior to cutting his connection with the Parisians, Mbappe is scheduled to have a meeting with the Emir of Qatar on Tuesday, when the French president Emmanuel Macron is on an official two-day visit to the nation.

Fabrizio Romano reports that Sheikh Tamim will not be making a desperate push to keep Mbappe at PSG, despite rumours that he would try to convince the player to do another stunning U-turn on his future.

The founder of Qatar Sports Investments, the company that owns PSG, Sheikh Tamim, will not be discussing Mbappe’s future because the striker’s transfer to Real Madrid is finalised.

Mbappe has already told PSG president Nasser Al-Khelaifi that he will accept a large salary cut to join Real Madrid and that he will not be staying at the Parc des Princes no matter how much money is offered to him.

Mbappe reportedly earns a staggering €200 million (£171.1 million) a year at PSG, while Real Madrid only offered the former Monaco player €15 million (£12.8 million) a season because they wouldn’t alter their pay structure.

But Mbappe is expected to receive a massive €128 million (£109.5 million) signing-on fee from Los Blancos, which will be given to the attacker over the course of his five-year contract.

For a brief while, there was talk of Mbappe moving to the Premier League with either Arsenal or Liverpool, but neither team would have been expected to give in to the forward’s financial demands, and his only goal was to move to Real.

Mbappe has surpassed Edinson Cavani at the top of Les Parisiens’ goalscoring charts with 244 goals in 292 games since originally joining PSG on loan from Monaco in 2017. He has also set up 105 goals.

While playing for the capital’s biggest teams, the 25-year-old has won five Ligue 1 titles. However, he has not yet realised his dream of winning the Champions League with PSG, who defeated Real Sociedad 2-0 in the first leg of their last-16 match earlier this month.
