Juventus are reportedly plotting to lure Kylian Mbappe away from Paris Saint-Germain with a massive offer
The Bianconeri brought Cristiano Ronaldo for £99m last summer as part of their efforts to win the Champions League for the first time in the 21st century.
But, Juventus hierarchy feels the Portuguese superstar needs a prolific partner in the final third to bring the most prestigious club title back to Turin.
Andrea Agnelli has already asked Juve’s shareholders to approve a €300m capital increase, a sum he intends to use to propel the club to Europe’s royalty.
Capturing the signature of the PSG superstar, Kylian Mbappe, is instrumental to these agendas, and the president is ready to fork out £160m to get the deal over the line, according to the Daily Mail.
The whole package, including a five-year contract, could reach the figure of £330m, which would be a precedent-setting deal for Italian football.
Despite his young age, the France international, who enjoyed a rise to the stardom at AS Monaco, is already considered as one of the best players in the world.
An ongoing tug of war between Real Madrid and Barcelona has now gained a new perspective, as the reigning Serie A holders seem determined to win the race.
Meanwhile, the 20-year-old could welcome a move to Italy amid the Parisians’ struggling to become a force to be reckoned with on the international scene.
