Real Madrid have made an official statement over the alleged transfer bid of Kylian Mbappe, just a day after denying a world-record bid for his Paris Saint-Germain teammate Neymar.
Mbappe, 19, has been one of the standout performers for the France national team at the 2018 FIFA World Cup and is widely considered as one of Europe's most exciting talents.
His brace in the 4-3 victory over Argentina this weekend put the teenager within the global limelight as Les Blues progressed to the quarter-final stage of the competition.
Despite only completing his permanent €180m (R2.87b) deal from AS Monaco to PSG this month, it's been reported Real have agreed to sign the teenage sensation.
Multiple reports in French media have claimed Los Blancos have agreed on a world-record fee of €272m for the explosive attacker with journalist Baptiste Ripart revealing the 'exclusive news' on his official Twitter account.
However, Real have released another official statement regarding the reports.
"In the information published in the last hours referring to an alleged agreement between Real Madrid C. F. and PSG by player Kylian Mbappé, Real Madrid states that they are flatly false," read the statement on the club's official website.
"Real Madrid has not made any offers to PSG or the player and regrets the dissemination of this type of information that is not contrasted with the parties."
