Real Madrid expect to sign Kylian Mbappe in the next fortnight after agreeing a stunning world record £120million deal with Monaco.
The 18-year-old caught the eye of Europe’s elite with a series of brilliant performances in Leonardo Jardim’s title-winning side last term.
The teenager spearheaded Monaco’s ascent to the Champions League semi-finals and there’s been widespread interest from across Europe in the Frenchman’s services.
Monaco have already sold big hitters such as Bernardo Silva and Tiemoue Bakayoko this summer and had planned on keeping Mbappe for another season.
However, according to the Sun, Madrid have agreed a deal with the French giants to take Mbappe to the Bernabeu for a world record £120m.
Mbappe’s arrival will be a significant coup for Madrid, who saw off competition from Arsenal, Manchester City and Paris Saint-Germain for the forward.?
Madrid president Florentino Perez is keen on bringing in a star name after offloading the likes of James Rodriguez and Alvaro Morata to fund Mbappe’s move.

Mbappe, though, may only hold the world record for a short while with PSG expected to meet Neymar’s £198m release clause in the coming days.
The Brazilian is believed to have agreed personal terms with the French giants and Barcelona cannot prevent him leaving if PSG meet the clause.
Paul Pogba currently holds the world record for his £89m move to Old Trafford last summer.
