PSG close to £128m deal for Mbappe


Paris Saint-Germain are reportedly in talks with Monaco to sign striker Kylian Mbappe, according to reports.

Sky Sports said that the deal would involve a season-long loan for the young French star with an agreement to buy him next summer.

The deal is believed to be worth around £128 million and would involve PSG’s Lucas Moura heading to Monaco.

It is likely to be a loan as PSG need to comply with UEFA’s Financial Fair Play (FFP) rules.

Earlier this month the French club signed Neymar from Barcelona in a world-record £200m transfer deal.

Sky has also reported that Monaco midfielder Fabinho is in talks about a move to PSG.

Mbappe has long been coveted by a host of top clubs, with speculation suggesting that he could move to either Real Madrid, Barcelona, Manchester City, or Arsenal circulating all summer..

Monaco said last month there would be “no more departures” after already selling Benjamin Mendy, Bernardo Silva and Teimu Bakayoko in the summer transfer window.

Monaco want the 18-year old to sign a new contract, and have held talks with the player over new terms.

Mbappe hit 26 goals and notched eight assists last season as Monaco won the Ligue 1 title and made the last four of the Champions League.
