PSG sporting director Leonardo briefly spoke to Spanish media earlier on Friday and reiterated that the club's position relating to an Mbappé exit has not changed with Le Parisien later claiming that the second Real Madrid will not prosper and has been rejected by PSG.

Real Madrid's second tabled bid included 170 million euro plus an additional ten in add-ons with the Spanish club anxious to close the deal as soon as possible with the transfer window set to close at midnight on 31 August.

Madrid executives were hoping to secure the player's signature by the end of play on Friday given that PSG boss Pochettino will have to name his squad on Saturday for Sunday's Ligue 1 clash away to Reims and avoid a scenario where the striker pulls on the PSG shirt again.
