According to Marca, the 18-year-old’s desire is to join Los Blancos and if Cristiano Ronaldo departs it could speed up Mbappe’s move to the La Liga champions.

Ronaldo is looking to leave Madrid this summer as he believes he’s received a lack of support from the club after he was accused of tax fraud.

Mbappe has been valued at over £100million which would make him the most expensive player in the world and he could become Zinedine Zidane’s next Galactico.

Mbappe has previously insisted it is imperative he plays regular first-team football next season and tha he will make the final decision on his future.

He said: “I’ll be the only one who decides, along with my family, no one will decide for me.

“I won’t go anywhere where I have been told to go. It’ll be my choice, and I’ll back that choice.”

Mbappe added: “All I want to do is play. I’m at an age where I have to play. I’m not 35 or 36 years old towards the end of my career or where I have to be careful.

“I’m at an age where I have just started, I still have everything to prove.”
