Liverpool and Real Madrid continue chase for Kylian Mbappe

Real Madrid are reportedly planning to move for Paris Saint-Germain attacker Kylian Mbappe this summer.

The 22-year-old has still not signed a new contract with PSG, and it appears likely that the Frenchman will be sold in the upcoming market if he does not pen an extension to his current deal, which expires in June 2022.

Liverpool are thought to be long-term admirers of the World Cup winner, but a recent report claimed that Mbappe is determined to join Madrid during this summer’s transfer window.

According to AS, despite the financial problems caused by the coronavirus pandemic, Los Blancos are preparing a big-money offer for the former Monaco youngster.

The report claims that Zinedine Zidane’s side remain interested in Borussia Dortmund’s Erling Braut Haaland, but Mbappe is seen as the priority target for the reigning Spanish champions.

The forward has again been in excellent form for PSG during the 2020-21 campaign, scoring 33 times and providing 10 assists in 39 appearances in all competitions.

Madrid are thought to be open to the idea of using Vinicius Junior as part of the swap deal for the France international.
