Real Madrid are planning to make a bid to sign Paris St-Germain striker Kylian Mbappe this summer for a world record £240 million. 

France Football has reported that Real are preparing the mega-deal for the France international as part of the major revamp manager Zinedine Zidane is planning.

After a mediocre – by their standards – season, Zidane is planning a major overhaul of the playing staff. Top of the list is a marquee signing to replace Cristiano Ronaldo, and Mbappe fits the bill.

If – and it is a big if – a deal is done, it would smash the current record £198 million that PSG paid Barcelona for Neymar back in 2017.

However, it is thought that PSG have no intention of selling one of their major stars and would turn down any bid. But matters are complicated as they may need to sell to comply with Financial Fair Play rules.

France Football also speculated that deals to bring Chelsea’s Eden Hazard and Manchester United midfielder Paul Pogba to the Bernabeau are almost done deals.
