According to reports, Kylian Mbappe could make a mega transfer to Real Madrid in the summer.

The PSG and France forward has also been on the radar of Liverpool, but the Merseyside Reds are understood to have ended their interest.

Spanish outlet SPORT claim Mbappe’s mother, who represents the 20-year-old, has told Real Madrid he has no intention of re-signing with the French champions.

Kylian Mbappe still has three years left on his contract at PSG.

Real Madrid have long been fans of the starlet but have also been linked with his team-mate Neymar.

Mbappe has once again been in excellent form this campaign, scoring nine times and providing four assists in all competitions.

Liverpool boss Jurgen Klopp has previously suggested the Merseyside Reds will not move for the France international.

Roberto Firmino, Mohamed Salah and Sadio Mane are the current front three for the European champions.

“Buying this calibre of player is difficult,” said Klopp.

“I don’t see any club at the moment who can buy Kylian Mbappe from PSG.

“I don’t see any club, that is how it is. And we are involved in the clubs that cannot do it. It is as easy as that.

“OK, from a sporting point of view, there are not a lot of reasons to not sign him.

“What a player he is. But it is about the money, of course. No chance. Absolutely no chance. Sorry for killing that story.”

It could take an astronomical offer for PSG to let Mbappe leave this summer though.

Real Madrid could have to pay €400m (£342m) which is the French champions valuation of one of their prized assets.

Frenchmen will be back in action for PSG against Lille in Ligue 1 on Friday evening (7.45 pm).
