Real Madrid are reportedly prepared to break the world transfer record in order to sign Paris Saint-Germain forward, Kylian Mbappe.
The Spanish giant are considering the possibility of making a world-record €400m bid for the French star, Le Parisien reports.
Los Blancos boss Zinedine Zidane has not shied away from acknowledging his admiration for his French compatriot, while the 20-year-old has previously admitted that he is a fan of the legendary midfielder.
And a bid of €400m may prove too good to turn down for PSG, who are likely to make their own efforts to tie Mbappe down to an extended deal.
Real must make several player sales if they are to push through the transfer of the former Monaco man.
The youngster has been linked with a move to the Santiago Bernabeu on several occasions over the years, especially towards the end of his tenure with Monaco. In the end, he made the jump to PSG, but now the Ligue 1 champions face a battle to keep him within their ranks.
This proposed figure for a potential deal, which is tipped to take place during next summer’s transfer window, would nearly double the current record set by PSG when they purchased Neymar from Barcelona for €222m back in 2017.
PSG are also said to be ready with a move for Madrid’s Vinicius Junior should Los Blancos steal away Mbappe, while they’ve also been linked with a move for Barcelona forward Antoine Griezmann.
