PSG beat Madrid to Mbappe – reports

Paris Saint-Germain have beaten Real Madrid to the signing of Monaco striker Kylian Mbappe after reaching a €180m, say multiple reports.

Various media outlets across Europe including Marca, AS, Diario Sport and El Mundo Deportivo all report on the landmark deal for the French teenager strike, who had been strongly linked with a move to the Bernabeu.

It looks to be the second massive blow the Parisians have landed on La Liga after the world record €222m agreement for Neymar from Barcelona earlier this month.

Most deals have a consensus that the deal is worth a lump sum payment of €150m with a further €30m in instalments and it would take the spending at Parc des Princes to over €400m this summer.

However, French outlet Le Parisien remains confident that no deal is in place between the clubs and as things stand, Mbappe will remain at Monaco.
