The 22-year-old has been linked with a move to Real for several years, with the Spanish champions originally linked with the forward when he was still at Monaco.
There was even some surprise when Mbappe moved to PSG in 2017, initially on loan, for a fee of €145 million, such was the expectation that he would move to Real.
With his contract expiring in 2022, rumours have recently intensified again, despite an offer to extend from PSG, and, according to reports in Spain, Mbappe does want to make the move to the Spanish capital now.
Cuatro and Cadena SER, via AS, report that the World Cup winner has made up his mind and doesn't want to sign a new deal or wait until next summer to move for free.
Whilst Liverpool, and others, are also believed to be interested in the forward, his desire is to join Real.
The decision means that PSG would have a huge decision to make, in either agreeing a deal for him to move this summer or see him leave for free next summer.
Even with just one year left on his contract the Parisiens would be expected to fetch a large fee if they allowed their star man to leave before his deal expired.
AS report it as a 'economically complicated but feasible operation' to make the transfer happen this summer, despite the buying club's reported financial issues.
Florentino Perez is ready to make one or two big signings as he attempts to rebuild Zinedine Zidane's squad and Erling Haaland is also on their radar, with the club having spoken to the Borussia Dortmund player's agent.
Zidane has reportedly stayed stayed in touch with Mbappe over the years, although the three time Champions League winning manager's future has also been rumoured to be questionable in the past.
Mbappe's performance against Bayern Munich on Wednesday night proved exactly why Real will be desperate to sign him and exactly why PSG want to keep hold of him.
The 22-year-old scored twice against the Champions League holders, including a goal that Manuel Neuer really should have kept out, and caused problems all night for the Germans, as PSG won the first leg 3-2 in Munich.
