Paris Saint Germain are reportedly set to present Kylian Mbappé with an enormous offer to stay at the club amid speculation that Real Madrid plan to make a swipe for the player in the summer.

The world’s most valuable player, Mbappé has been repeatedly linked with Madrid and is understood to look favourably on a potential move to the Spanish capital.

Earlier this week, former Monaco vice-president Vadim Vasilyev revealed that Mbappé, then a Monaco player, had told him that his ultimate intentions were to join the Spanish giants but felt a move in 2017 was “too soon”, prompting his decision to sign for PSG.

Even Madrid coach Zinedine Zidane acknowledged in his latest press conference on Tuesday that it was the French forward's dream to play for Los Blancos

Real Madrid president Florentino Peréz is willing to pay 300 million euros to make Mbappé the club’s next Galactico signing.

PSG plan to put Mbappé on par with Neymar

Aware that their young star may now be leaning towards a summer switch to Madrid after three seasons in Paris, PSG plan to offer him close to 40 million euros a year in a bid to convince him to stay at Parc de Princes, according to French daily El Parisien.

Such a wage hike would put the 20-year-old on par with team mate Neymar, who earns a reported 36.8 million euros a season.

El Parisien also claims that Madrid president Florentino Peréz is willing to pay 300 million euros to make Mbappé the club’s next Galáctico signing.

Madrid know that the World Cup winner has aspirations to add the Champions League and Ballon d’Or to his list of honours, something which he fills will be difficult to achieve in Paris.
