Los Blancos are apparently trying to sign Mbappe before the transfer window closes.

La Liga giants Real Madrid are apparently keen on signing their long-time target Kylian Mbappe as they have reportedly submitted an offer worth €160m to Paris Saint-Germain.

However, several other reports claim that Les Parisiens have rejected the offer as they remain firm on their stance that they will not sell the French World winner this summer.

The 22-year-old is said to have rejected back to back offers to extend his contract with PSG, with his current deal expiring next year.

PSG president Nasser Al-Khelaifi had earlier said Mbappe could have no excuses to leave Parc Des Princes this summer.

The Les Parisiens chief said: “The future of Mbappe? I think everyone knows. His future is clear. He said it himself. He wanted us to have a competitive team. “

“Well, we have the most competitive in the world right now. So there is no excuse for him now. He can’t do anything else but stay.”

PSG manager Mauricio Pochettino also stressed that Mbappe’s future at Parc Des Princes is clearer than ever.

The Argentine boss said:”Will Mbappe still be with us in three weeks’ time? I have nothing to say about what the president [Nasser Al-Khelaifi] said. Kylian is our player and will remain so.”

Les Parisiens appears to be not intimidated by the prospect of losing Mbappe for free when his contract expires next summer.

While it is being doubted whether Madrid can afford big-money signings due to their financial crisis, their latest offer for Mbappe shows that they can’t be written off.
