Real Madrid ‘agree £161m deal to sign Mbappe’

Real Madrid have agreed a £161million deal for teenage Monaco striker Kylian Mbappe, according to the Spanish media.

Marca reported on Tuesday morning that the LaLiga and Champions League holders had struck a huge agreement for the 18-year-old that would shatter the current world-record transfer.

The £89m paid by Manchester United for Paul Pogba last summer was the top mark, but should this deal go ahead, it will nearly double that.

Mbappe’s breakthrough year with Monaco – which saw him score 26 goals in all competitions as his side won the Ligue 1 title – has seen him linked with a host of clubs including Arsenal and Manchester City.

But Marca claims Real have won the race, especially given they have an extra £60m to play with following the sale of Alvaro Morata to Chelsea.
