Kylian Mbappe will not sign a contract extension at Paris Saint-Germain and Real Madrid are ready to pounce.
The French superstar has one year left on his deal at the Parc des Princes but could yet move to the Bernabeu this summer.
PSG had hoped Lionel Messi’s arrival might persuade Mbappe, 22, to stay in the French capital as they push for a maiden Champions League triumph.
Though they have long been linked with Mbappe, the report states Real Madrid are serious about moving for him this time around.
Mbappe was the subject of whistles from PSG’s fans before their 4-2 victory over Strasbourg, in which he scored the second goal on 25 minutes.
PSG will not want to lose one of the biggest stars in the game on a free transfer and it may now be the perfect time for them to cash in.
Real Madrid are expected to make a move for Mbappé before the end of the transfer window, as the youngster has reportedly rejected a six-year contract offer from PSG which was put on the table two weeks ago
