Real Madrid are reportedly eyeing a world record move to bring sought-after Paris Saint-Germain forward Kylian Mbappe to the Bernabeu.

Any move for the world renowned superstar would smash the current world record transfer fee, which was also paid by PSG to sign Neymar from Barcelona for £198m.

It is no surprise European giants such as Real are circling with Mbappe notching 69 goals and registering 36 assists in just 98 appearances for the French giants.

According to Spanish publication Marca, PSG are already looking possible Mbappe replacements.

Marca claim PSG officials have identified Barcelona forward Antoine Griezmann as the ideal player to fill the void should Mbappe depart.

Diario Sport have also reported that PSG are interested in signing Vinicius Junior, who has struggled for game time under Real boss Zinedine Zidane this season.

Liverpool have also been mooted as a possible destination for Mbappe, although Jurgen Klopp has made his thoughts clear already on the prospect of that transfer happening.

Speaking earlier this month, he said: “We have nothing to say about it to be honest, but [buying] this calibre of player is difficult!

“I don’t think there is a club in the world that can buy Kylian Mbappe from PSG, that is how it is. And we are involved in that too.

“We cannot do it, it is as easy as that. OK, from a sporting point of view, there are not a lot of reasons to not sign him, what a player he is.

“But it is about the money of course. No chance. Absolutely no chance, sorry for killing that story!”
