Spanish football giants Real Madrid have made a EUR160 million ($188 million) bid for Paris Saint-Germain striker Kylian Mbappe, Spanish media reported on Tuesday.
French newspapers L’Equipe and Le Parisien report that the bid has been rejected by PSG.
CNN was unable to independently verify the reporting of Le Parisien or L’Equipe.
The World Cup winner, aged 22, joined the Parisian club AS Monaco on loan in 2017 before being made permanent in 2018.
The Frenchman’s current contract expires with PSG on June 30, 2022. He has yet to sign an extension.
When contacted by, neither PSG, Real Madrid, or Mbappe’s lawyers were available immediately for comment.
Mbappe scored 133 goals in 174 matches for PSG and was the top goalscorer last season in Ligue 1 with 27 goals.
Earlier this month, PSG president Nasser Al-Khelaifi said he hoped the arrival of Lionel Messi at PSG would convince Mbappe to stay at the club.
Al-Khelaifi stated that everyone knows what the future holds for Kylian. He wants to win, and he wants trophies.
He said it publicly, he wants a competitive team. We have the best team in the world. He can’t do any other than stay. There is no excuse.
