Marco Verratti is no different to the fans over Kylian Mbappe's transfer decisionThe Frenchman has been heavily linked with a move to Real Madrid this summerMbappe has scored 36 goals and assisted 26 in all competitions this seasonVerratti won't try to convince him, urging Mbappe's decision is his to make alone 

Paris Saint-Germain midfielder Marco Verratti admitted he is completely in the dark about Kylian Mbappe’s future, amid growing rumours that his team-mate could be heading to Champions League finalists Real Madrid.

The Italian international joked that he felt ill when Mbappe was reported to be in the Spanish capital.

‘When I was on my day off and I saw a notification saying that Kylian is in Madrid, it made me sick,’ Verratti said jovially to Le Parisien.

‘Even if afterwards he told me: “Don’t worry, I was on holiday.”

‘We’re all waiting to find out.’

The 23-year-old Frenchman has fast become one of the greatest players in world football and hasn’t showed any sign of slowing down at PSG this season, scoring 36 goals and assisting 26 in all competitions.

It is not lost on Verratti how vital Mbappe is to the French champions, but he confessed that the striker’s decision must be made by him alone.

He said: ‘It will have an impact on the club, whatever his decision will be. He’s one of the best players on the planet right now so we all want him to stay here.

‘But when I speak with him, it’s more just to have a laugh. In football, when you have something on your mind, if a decision is coming up, you don’t talk about it.

‘It’s his decision, and I’m waiting for it like you are.’

Speaking on whether he has offered Mbappe advice on his future, Verratti added: ‘No, because he knows what I think.

‘I wouldn’t be a good advisor, in any case not an objective one. I wouldn’t be thinking about his own good, but that of everyone here in Paris.’

Mbappe was named Ligue 1’s player of the season for the third consecutive year at the awards ceremony on Sunday night.

Confirmation of a move to Real would finally bring to an end a transfer saga that has raged for almost a year.

Los Blancos tried to sign Mbappe last summer, but PSG rejected multiple bids worth up to £154million.
