Real Madrid to announce Kylian Mbappe’s £154million arrival today

Reports in Spain say Real Madrid are to announce Kylian Mbappe’s £154million arrival on Friday morning, appearing briefly in the Spanish capital before joining up with the French national team ahead of their clash with Bosnia this coming Wednesday.

Marca say PSG will sanction the sale once they have confirmed France striker Mbappe wants to leave.

The 22-year-old has continued to train with PSG but he is reportedly not expected to be included in the squad for Sunday’s Ligue 1 game against Reims.

Los Blancos had a bid of £137m rejected by PSG on Wednesday, with sporting director Leonardo stating the offer was ‘very far’ from the club’s valuation of the forward.

Real have now improved their offer – but the sum is still short of the £162m PSG paid Monaco for Mbappe in 2017.
