On Tuesday, AS’s back page showed a picture of the France striker mocked up in a Real Madrid kit while the headline read: ‘Madrid has the advantage to sign Mbappe’.
According to their report, the 21-year-old wants to move to the LaLiga champions because of his love for Zinedine Zidane.

PSG did not want to sell Mbappe but find themselves in a difficult position with the forward only having two years left on his deal and intent on leaving.
With Mbappe’s contract expiring in 2022, next summer will be PSG’s last opportunity to cash in on their star asset before running the risk of losing him for free.
It is understood that PSG will demand £140million for Mbappe but Real Madrid could try to exploit the situation and look to seal a discounted deal for £30m less.

On Monday, Madrid-based Marca ran with the headline alongside the Real badge: ‘We are waiting for you Mbappe’ after his plans to leave PSG next summer were revealed.
Madrid have already drawn up a battle plan for next summer’s transfer window, with Mbappe set to be the headline signing while they also target Dayot Upamecano and Eduardo Camavinga.
