On Tuesday, AS Monaco denied that a deal has been done to sell teenage sensation Kylian Mbappe to Real Madrid for €180 million.
The 18-year-old French international has been the centre of a bidding war with Arsenal, Paris-Saint Germain, and other top teams all joining in to try to sign the striker.
The deal, according to the Spanish press, is for Real Madrid to pay €160 million followed by a further €20 million depending on performance. Mbappe would join on a six-year contract worth seven million a year.
Real Madrid have realised €100 million in transfer fees, while Monaco has already garnered €300 million during the summer transfer window.
The Spanish club has reportedly wooed the teenager with promises of playing time, even if that involved side-lining and selling other players. Mbappe is a Real Madrid fan and his father has been talking to the club for several weeks.
