Mbappe and Ronaldo are among the most talked about players right now as their futures have been subject to continuous speculation throughout the entire transfer window. 

According to numerous reports, Real Madrid have made a €160 million (R2.8 billion) offer for Mbappe, and the PSG attacker reportedly wants to join Los Blancos either in this window or at the end of the 2021/22 season. 

It is believed Mbappe wants to fulfil his boyhood dream of playing for the LaLiga giants, and it is for this reason the 2018 FIFA World Cup winner has reportedly turned down numerous contract extension offers from PSG, although Les Parisiens sporting director Leonardo is adamant the player will only leave the French club on their terms. 

Meanwhile, Ronaldo reportedly wants to sign for Premier League giants Manchester City in this transfer window, per L'Equipe.
