Paris Saint-Germain and Real Madrid are reportedly using an agent to help with a possible transfer of Kylian Mbappé. The Spanish club appears to have begun putting the wheels in motion to land the 24-year-old this summer.
As both parties begin to start somewhat of a dialogue through a third party, ESPN FC’s Claude Martin reports that Real Madrid has always been the preferred destination for the Frenchman.
Martin notes that everything else is a strategy from PSG, whether it’s clubs like Al-Nassr or FC Barcelona in the mix for the 2018 FIFA World Cup winner. Furthermore, the French journalist says that an announcement could come in the next few days now that talks are reportedly beginning.

When Mbappé decided not to trigger his option to extend his contract with PSG until 2025, all eyes then turned to Real Madrid. The La Liga side has long wanted the forward and now they’re close to having him.
Although Los Blancos could wait until next summer to sign Mbappé as a free agent, they should be looking to acquire the player now to replace Karim Benzema.
