Real Madrid chairman Florentino Perez plots an audacious move to take Kylian Mbappe away from Paris Saint-Germain
Perez is a known admirer of the 20-year-old forward, as he sees Mbappe as a long-term replacement for Cristiano Ronaldo.
The Parisians are eager to keep hold of their headline performer amid the uncertainty over Neymar’s future at the Parc des Princes.

After splashing out €180m to snatch him away from AS Monaco in summer 2017, the reigning Ligue 1 holders have put Mbappe in the center of their project.
Therefore, the World Cup winner is unlikely to depart the French capital unless PSG can find a worthy substitute.
That’s where Florentino Perez comes in.
Los Blancos’ president intends to use his former protégé, Cristiano Ronaldo, to convince PSG to allow Mbappe to move to the Santiago Bernabeu.

Working in accordance with Ronaldo’s representative Jorge Mendes, Perez is trying to persuade the Portuguese star to leave Juventus, according to the Daily Star.
The 34-year-old is not enjoying the best of times in Turin and might be willing to accept such a prospect, especially in light of current events.
After being substituted by Maurizio Sarri twice in less than five days, the former Sporting Lisbon youth academy product has shown clear signs of frustration with his manager.
