Real Madrid are reportedly lining up a world-record £250m bid for Paris Saint-Germain star forward Kylian Mbappe, reports in Spain and England suggest
According to the Daily Mail, Real Madrid are readying a massive £250m bid to secure Mbappe’s signature next summer.
Mbappe’s outburst during PSG’s 5-0 Ligue 1 triumph over Montpellier at the weekend has fueled speculations about his altercation with Thomas Tuchel, casting doubt over his future at the Parc des Princes.
The Parisians boss has reportedly held a discussion with the French forward after the game in front of the squad and sporting director Leonardo, trying to clear things out.
The 21-year-old’s desire to part ways with the perennial French champions is seemingly overwhelming, and his bust-up with Tuchel can only encourage his efforts to force a way out of Paris.

Los Blancos have been in the market for a top-class forward since the last summer as Zinedine Zidane bids to restore the Santiago Bernabeu outfit to Europe’s elite.
Although they ended up empty-handed during the summer, La Liga heavyweights will make new attempts to lure Mbappe to the Spanish capital at the end of the season.
Eden Hazard is not a shadow of a player he was during his time at Chelsea, and Zidane is looking for a new frontman to spearhead Real’s attack.
Moreover, Florentino Perez is known for his affection for superstars, and he showed on multiple occasions in the past that he knows how to attract star players to Madrid.
But, Real will face stiff competition for Liverpool, who are also credited with an interest in the player and can offer him a mouthwatering prospect of playing in the Premier League.
