Real Madrid have reportedly agreed a deal worth around £800,000-a-week that would see the PSG forward Kylian Mbappe swap Paris for the Spanish capital.

The World Cup winner is approaching the end of his current deal with Mauricio Pochettino’s side, and is yet to agree an extension that would keep him in France beyond the end of the season.

Understandably, the ongoing uncertainty has led to widespread speculation about Mbappe’s future, with Real and Premier League giants Liverpool both touted as long-term admirers of the star.

According to a fresh update from Bild, however, it looks as if Jurgen Klopp’s men are set to miss out on a high-profile swoop for the 23-year-old.

With just six months left on his current contract with PSG, the German outlet report that Mbappe has entered talks with Real, and has subsequently agreed a deal worth a staggering £41.6million-a-year - equivalent to around £800,000-a-week.

PSG and Real are scheduled to face off in a Champions League round of 16 double header next month, and Bild suggest that an official announcement regarding Mbappe’s move to Spain will be made public at some point after that clash.

What has Mbappe said about moving to Real Madrid?

Mbappe has been the subject of interest from Real before, with the Spanish giants previously failing with a reported offer of around £146 million for the player.

Reflecting on that collapsed bid, the striker made no secret of his desire to seal a move to Madrid.

Speaking to RMC, he said: “I asked to leave, because from the moment where I did not want to extend, I wanted for the club to receive a transfer fee so that they could bring in a quality replacement.

“This club has given me a lot, I have always been happy [during] the four years I have had here, and I still am.

“I said it early enough so that the club could react.

“I wanted everyone to come out of this stronger, that we leave hand in hand, to make a good deal and I respected that.

“I said, ‘If you don’t want me to go I will stay’.”
