REAL Madrid are ready to step up their pursuit of Paris Saint-Germain star, Kylian Mbappe amidst interest from the current champion of the champions league, Liverpool. The Spanish giants are known to sign the best and proven players, they are long term admirers of the 21-year-old and are willing to sign him as soon as the transfer window reopens.

  Kylian Mbappe has been exceptional for PSG since he signed and has scored 18 goals and created five assists in the Ligue 1 this current season. The coach of Real Madrid, Zinedine Zidane has been a fan since he broke into the scene in Monaco.  

  Ahead of Madrid’s game against PSG in the Champions League earlier this season Zidane admitted he was “in love” with Mbappe.”I’ve known him for a long time,” he said. “I’ve been in love with him for a long time, but as a person first. He came here for a trial a long time ago.”

  According to Spanish outlet Marca, the La Liga club will make Mbappe their top priority when football resumes again after the coronavirus crisis. His contract expires in June 2022, and PSG could be tempted to sell the player before then if they receive a suitable offer.

  Liverpool are another team who have been linked with Mbappe, and are thought to be keen on bringing in a big name to help launch their lucrative kit deal with Nike but it is not clear whether the Reds have the financial ability to compete with Madrid, who could be set to spend close to £200m on Mbappe.

  Despite the World Cup winner’s largely successful season at PSG, it has not been all plain sailing, he twice reacted furiously to being substituted by manager, Thomas Tuchel, both in games against Montpellier, and there were rumours that Mbappe’s relationship with his coach were deteriorating sparking a rumour of the youngster wanting to leave the club.
