Real Madrid 'make £41.75m Mbappe transfer offer' and look to steal PSG striker cheap as contract runs down

REAL MADRID are claimed to have made a cut-price offer to Paris Saint-Germain for Kylian Mbappe.

Italian football agent Giovanni Branchini claims Real hope a £41.75million bid will secure Mbappe – just six months after a £150MILLION offer was rejected.

Mbappe, 23, who moved to the French giants from Monaco in 2018, has emerged as a top summer transfer target for some of Europe’s biggest sides.

His contract expires in June and he is now free to negotiate with non-French clubs to move on a free transfer.

It is thought Liverpool are among the giants competing to sign the forward, who has informed PSG of his intent to leave the club this summer.

But Spanish giants Madrid are claimed to want to acquire the striker before the summer to avoid a bidding war.

Branchini told Gazzetta Dello Sport: "It depends on PSG now, as Real Madrid have gone back in for Mbappe by offering 50m euros (£41.75m) a few days ago.

"I don't know how this will play out. It seems to me that this move from Florentino Perez is worth watching closely.

"It would be a shame for a player like Mbappe to move for free in the summer. I don't know what they think about this in Paris."

France World Cup winner Mbappe has racked up 18 goals and 13 assists in in all competitions this season.

PSG, who face Lyon next in Ligue One, are reported to have turned down multiple bids from Carlo Ancelotti’s club for their star striker.

And the France ace, who is free to enter talks with Real and other sides, claims he is happy to see out the rest of the season in Paris.

In December, Mbappe told CNN: 'I'm at PSG, I'm really happy. I will finish the season (here), 100 per cent.

"I'll give everything I have to win the Champions League, the league and cup and to give all the pleasure to the fans because they deserve it.

When quizzed on his decision to tell PSG of his wish to leave, the forward added: "I was honest. I gave a feeling, I gave what I have in my heart,"

PSG are set to go head-to-head with Madrid in the round 16 knockout stages of this term’s Champions League.

France’s top tier leaders are targeting their first-ever win in the competition after finishing runners-up in the 2019-20 tournament.

Mbappe said: "We have to be ready. It's time. It's the most important part of the season.

“Of course, we want to step up now. It's been two years we do final, semi-final, but now we want to win."
