Real Madrid have reportedly offered a €160 million (£137 million) deal to bring the Paris Saint Germain center forward Kylian Mbappe to their team squad this summer.

Speculation over the future of the 22-year-old has grown throughout the summer as talks with PSG over a new contract failed to make significant progress.

Mbappe’s 12 months remain in his deal with PSG. He is not planning to leave the French capital this summer. He would be able to discuss terms regarding a free transfer away from the club from January.

PSG are keen to avoid losing the second-most expensive player of all time for nothing and, having seen him reject their latest contract offer, they are increasingly open to offers.

The recent arrival of six-time Ballon d’Or winner Lionel Messi at the Parc des Princes has also made losing Mbappe potentially less harmful to their chances of success, although the French giants’ preference is still to keep the forward.

Real Madrid have been long-term admirers of Mbappe, though, and transfer expert Fabrizio Romano claims that they have now submitted an official £137 million bid for the France international.

Will Kyalian Mbappe be able to make it to Real Madrid or not?

Such a deal would see Mbappe command the third-highest transfer fee in football history, behind only the deal to take him to PSG from Monaco, and Neymar’s switch to PSG from Barcelona.

However, PSG are understanding to have swiftly rejected that opening bid, with Real Madrid now expected to return with an improved second offer.

A Premier League club is also in the race to sign the World Cup winner. He was earlier linked with Manchester United and Liverpool.

Mbappe has scored 133 goals and created 63 more in just 174 appearances since joining PSG.

There has been wide speculation that PSG are heavily showing their interest in signing Paul Pogba. So, if they were to sell Mbappe, this could see a late move from PSG to sign United’s midfield maestro. Pogba has become the first player to record five assists in the first two games of a Premier League season- no wonder he is in demand.
