Over the years, Real Madrid have been looking for the signing of Kylian Mbappe and Los Blancos chiefs are still interested in the Frenchman who has won the World Cup title.

Real Madrid have asked PSG about Mbappe through intermediaries and have been told that the French player is not for sale this summer.

This means that Kylian Mbappe is free to talk with any club from January 2022 over a move next summer.
