Report: Real Madrid make second bid for Kylian Mbappe


Real Madrid have reportedly made a second bid to sign Paris Saint-Germain star Kylian Mbappe.

Los Blancos launched an initial £137 million (R2.8 billion) bid for the French striker earlier this week, but that offer was rejected by PSG, who are not keen on selling their talisman.

Sky Sports News has now reported that the LaLiga outfit have made a second bid of €170 million (R2.9 billion) as they look to secure Mbappe's services before the transfer window closes.

PSG director Leonardo confirmed this week that the France star wants to leave the club, but insisted PSG will not allow him to leave for less than what they paid for him in 2018.

"This is how the transfer window is: we keep him and we extend. But we're not going to let him go for less than what we paid when we still owe Monaco money," Leonardo said in an interview with RMC.

Les Parisiens signed Mbappe from AS Monaco in a deal said to be worth €180 million (R3.1 billion) but it is claimed they have only paid €145 million (R2.5 billion)so far.
