According to Goal, Real are confident of pulling off a deal, although the Ligue 1 champions remain determined to convince Mbappe to sign a new deal.
The Madrid hierarchy are monitoring the progression of contract talks, but their confidence is bolstered by the fact that the France World Cup winner holds a boyhood ambition of playing for the Bernabeu giants.
PSG have so far had three contract offers turned down, but it remains possible that a new deal will be agreed.
Mbappe wants to wait and see what the situation looks like in the summer, with PSG currently in the Champions League quarter-finals and second in Ligue 1.

In Spain, there is a belief that the good relationships that have been built between the club and Mbappe could lead to a summer move.
Real will not be able to match PSG’s salary offer, but pitching Mbappe in a central role of a long-term project in the Spanish capital could sway him.
A member of the Merengues hierarchy went as far as to say: ‘It will depend on whether he wants to be in a “golden prison” or succeed here.’
