Zinedine Zidane has made Kylian Mbappe his top target as Real Madrid seek a new ‘Galactico’ signing, according to France Football.
The Paris Saint-Germain star is already one of the most expensive players in world football at the tender age of 20, having moved from Monaco last summer for a fee in excess of €140m (£120m/$159m).
And reports suggest it could take a staggering €280m (£240m/$317m) fee to prise the World Cup winner out of Paris. His 31 goals and 15 assists from just 35 appearances so far this season suggest he may well be worth it, however.
In other news, Neymar’s father has quelled transfer speculation around his son by claiming that he and Paris Saint-Germain are already discussing a contract extension.
The Brazil international is only two years into the five-year agreement he penned upon arriving in France, but has seen intense speculation suggest that he is destined to head elsewhere.
