Despite that contract, the 26-year-old continues to be linked with a shock switch to the Santiago Bernabeu.
Mbappe actually remains a Monaco player but his loan move to the Parc des Princes will become a permanent one in the summer.
The Paris Saint-Germain defender has tested himself against the best in the business at club level and on an worldwide stage with Brazil. The Independent reported in January that Real are keen on bringing the Brazil global to Santiago Bernabeu as part of a "major renovation" in the summer.
And while former goal machine Ronaldo was tight-lipped about a potential move, he believes Neymar would be a fine signing for Real. Is he even the second best player in the world now? However, Ronaldo has stressed that he has not managed to get any confirmation from the officials of the 12-time European winners regarding the PSG star.
Mbappe believes that the Portuguese forward is still one of the best in the world.
Xavi and Neymar were team-mates at Barcelona until the former left for Al Sadd in 2015, while the latter made a world-record move to PSG previous year. They trail league leaders Barcelona by 19 points with a game in hand. But they will have to overcome PSG who they face later this month in the Round of 16 stage of the tournament.
"They should think about what they have and this year it's hard for Madrid, they have to keep going and end well".
"Angel put in a very good performance and when he is like that, it is very good for us", Mbappe said. "I am not the coach, but he is doing great things right now and everybody is very happy about that".
