Real Madrid plot a massive summer move for Paris Saint-Germain stalwart Kylian Mbappe, according to the latest reports
Florentino Perez’s decision not to find a replacement for Cristiano Ronaldo has already come back to haunt him, with Los Blancos enduring one of the worst campaigns in their recent history.
Real Madrid president, therefore, plans to return to be a protagonist of the upcoming summer transfer session, identifying the PSG forward as his top priority.

Zinedine Zidane has already given his blessing, with the legendary Frenchman looking to help his fellow countryman to become the best in the world.
However, Real’s quest to grab the biggest football talent on the planet won’t be a simple task, given the reigning Ligue 1 holders expect to get at least €280 million to give the green light.
Los Merengues’ idea to reduce expenditure is to insert two midfielders currently on their books and persuade Nasser Al-Khelaifi to soften his stance.

James Rodriguez, currently on loan at Bayern Munich, has no intention of returning to Spain’s capital and the Bundesliga heavyweights seem unwilling to keep him on a permanent basis.
Meanwhile, the Parisians are desperate to bolster their midfield, and the potential arrival of the Colombia international may look like a tempting offer.
Another player Perez wants to include in the deal is Isco Alarcon, who has been going through a challenging period before Zidane’s reappointment.
However, the Spaniard has recently expressed his delight with the Frenchman’s return to the Estadio Santiago Bernabeu and may not be entirely convinced with the prospect of departing La Liga.
