Kylian Mbappe is within range this summer. Real Madrid will make their move for the Paris Saint-Germain forward, although they know that his signing won't be easing.

The coronavirus pandemic has put the club in a difficult financial position, but they know that they need to sign a world-class player to inject life into their project and squad.

They had the chance to sign Mbappe in 2017, though their reluctance to break up their BBC frontline saw them miss the opportunity, then not wanting to force an exit for Gareth Bale. Although they regretted that the following summer when Cristiano Ronaldo left after winning a third straight Champions League trophy.

Now PSG are considering parting ways with Mbappe this summer so that they can bring in a fee for his sale, with his contract set to expire in 2022. They're hoping to sign Lionel Messi, and their own finances mean that room needs to be made for the Argentine.
