Kylian Mbappe will eventually depart Paris Saint-Germain for Real Madrid, according to former Monaco vice president Vadim Vasilyev.
Vasilyev was vice president of Mbappe`s former club Monaco from 2013-2019, for whom the striker scored 27 goals in 60 appearances prior to his move to the French capital.

Mbappe has been frequently linked with a switch to the Bernabeu since his £121.5m arrival at PSG in 2018 after an initial season-long loan, and Vasilyev believes it is only a matter of time before the France international leaves for the La Liga club.
Kylian told me: `Vadim, I feel it deep inside me, it is too early [to leave France],` the 54-year-old told Telefoot.
`I have only played in my country for one year. I am Parisian and I do not want to leave my country this way. I want to be a great player here, Real can wait.`
It is coming [a move to Real Madrid], but he told me that was his feeling and he was right.
I told him: `They will come knocking and the entire Santiago Bernabeu will applaud when you arrive. You do not need confirmation to know that.`
During the summer, Mbappe admitted that he would be open to a new project and was considering his future at the Parc des Princes, before the Ligue 1 champions revealed in May that he would remain at the club for the 2019/20 campaign.
World Cup-winning forward Mbappe is under contract at the Parisian club until 2022.
He helped PSG to back-to-back league titles, scoring 32 goals and making seven assists in Ligue 1 last term.
Despite missing six games due to thigh and hamstring problems, he has managed nine goals in 10 appearances so far this season.
