MADRID: The 22-year-old has still not signed a new deal with the French giants, PSG.
Real Madrid will reportedly step up their pursuit of Paris Saint-Germain attacker Kylian Mbappe once this summer’s European Championship has concluded.
The 22-year-old has still not signed a new deal with the French giants and is expected to be sold during this summer’s transfer window if he is unable to agree on a fresh contract, as Mauricio Pochettino’s side run the risk of losing him on a free transfer next June.
Real Madrid have long been linked with the France international, and according to Marca, Carlo Ancelotti’s side will make their move after Euro 2020 has finished.
The report claims that Los Blancos president Florentino Perez is planning to meet with PSG president Nasser Al-Khelaifi next month to negotiate a big-money switch.
Madrid will have to sell players in order to afford to sign Mbappe, and the Spanish outfit are seemingly hopeful of offloading a number of individuals, including Luka Jovic, Dani Ceballos and Brahim Diaz, in the coming weeks.
Mbappe, who has also been linked with Liverpool, has scored 132 goals and registered 61 assists in 171 appearances for his current side since arriving from Monaco.
