Real Madrid are close to smashing the world record transfer for 18-year-old French striker Kylian Mbappe.
Spanish newspaper Marca reports that Monaco and Real Madrid are set to agree in principle to a deal worth €160m plus a further €20m in objectives to bring the teenage sensation to the Bernabeu.
Although Monaco has denied such claim to French newspaper Nice Matin, sources at the Spanish club are optimistic that a deal that would see Mbappe join the European Champions on a six-year deal with an annual salary of around €7m a year is definitely close.
