Real Madrid refute reports of world-record Kylian Mbappe offer

Former Brazil striker cannot praise Kylian Mbappe enough and talks about Brazil's possible revenge against France if they meet in the semifinals.

Real Madrid have issued a statement denying reports that they have made a bid for Paris Saint-Germain striker Kylian Mbappe.

According to unaffiliated French journalist and editor Baptiste Ripart, Los Blancos have agreed a world-record €272 million deal for Mbappe, which will be paid in four separate installments.

"Given the information published in the last few hours regarding an alleged agreement between Real Madrid C.F. and PSG for the player Kylian Mbappe. Real Madrid would like to state that it is completely false," an official statement read.

Kylian Mbappe has scored three goals at the World Cup with France.

"Real Madrid has not made any offer to PSG or the player and condemns the spreading of this type of information that has not been proven by the parties concerned."

It comes just a few days after Madrid distanced themselves from interest in fellow PSG star Neymar, as well as the news that UEFA will review its own recent financial fair play (FFP) ruling on PSG.

The decision enabled PSG to avoid short-term sanctions by selling a number of players including Javier Pastore and Yuri Berchiche.
