Real Madrid have launched a second bid worth €170m for Paris Saint-Germain star Kylian Mbappe.
Sky Sports reports that this is after the French Club rejected their €160m offer for the young striker.
Mbappe’s contract expires at the end of the 2021/22 season, but the Spanish giant are determined to land the World Cup winner this summer.
Similarly, Mbappe has expressed desire to leave Paris, and the club’s sporting director Leonardo has confirmed the talisman’s desire for a new challenge.
PSG chairman Nasser Al-Khelaifi does not want to lose Mbappe this summer, and placed a €200m price tag on the forward, following Madrid’s initial €160m bid.
Although Madrid has improved their initial bid for the striker, the bid fell €30m short of PSG’s asking price.
However, PSG are under pressure to sell their talisman or risk losing him for free at the end of the season.
The forward also has his heart set on a move to Madrid and is refusing to consider a new contract with PSG.
