Real set to launch bid for PSG ace

7th September 2019, 14:41 by Bobbie Jackson

Reports in Spain claim Real Madrid are gearing up to make a move for Paris Saint-Germain star Kylian Mbappe next summer.

Real have made a stuttering start to the 2019-20 campaign, drawing two of their three games, and Zinedine Zidane is already plotting for reinforcements for next summer.

Eden Hazard was their marquee signing of this summer, however, he is yet to make a La Liga appearance due to injury and they have relied on Gareth Bale, who had been told to leave during the transfer window before being brought back into the side.

Reports suggested that Los Blancos were keen on Neymar last month, the Brazilian having also been heavily linked with a move to Spanish rivals Barcelona.

But they were unable to agree terms with the Neymar, who remains at the Parc des Princes for at least the rest of this season.

It’s understood that Real have since turned their attention to Mbappe as they look to strengthen their attacking options.

The French World Cup winner would walk into any starting XI in world football but PSG will demand big money for his services.

Mbappe has scored 62 times in 91 appearances for the French giants since joining from Monaco for a fee in the region of 180million euros in the summer of 2017.

He has started this season with two goals in four outings but is currently on the sidelines nursing a hamstring injury.

There is no doubt that Mbappe’s arrival at the Bernabeu would hugely strengthen their chances of challenging for silverware once again, however, Zidane could be out of a job before he gets the chance to do a deal if Real’s performances don’t improve.
