Real Madrid hopeful on Kylian Mbappe deal in 2020

Real Madrid are growing increasingly confident they can secure a deal for Paris Saint-Germain striker Kylian Mbappe in 2020.

The La Liga giants have been heavily linked with a world record move for the French international in the past 18 months, and according to reports in Diario AS, his 'strained relationship' with PSG manager Thomas Tuchel could accelerate the move.

The pair have reportedly clashed on numerous occasions, with Mbappe making a point of saying how he wanted to remind the manager of his quality after scoring a hat trick in the 5-0 Champions League win over Club Brugge.

The report also states that Mbappe is not happy with Neymar's status at the club, despite the Brazilian openly agitating for a return to Barcelona this summer.

Mbappe is under contract with the Ligue 1 champions until 2022, however Real Madrid are reportedly ready to bid in the region of €300M to bring him from Paris to Madrid next season.
