Real Madrid have denied rumours that they have agreed a €272 million (£239m/$316m) deal with Paris Saint-Germain to sign forward Kylian Mbappe.
The Spanish side have been closely linked with the attacker since his rise to stardom at Monaco, and it has been claimed by journalists in France that a move is imminent this summer.
However, Madrid insist that no such deal is in place and says the reports are simply false.
“Given the information published in the last few hours referring to an alleged agreement between Real Madrid and PSG for player Kylian Mbappe, Real Madrid says they are flatly false,” a statement read.
“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.”
The statement comes just days after the Champions League holders made an announcement to clarify that talk of another world record deal with PSG had been struck, after it was reported that they were set to sign Neymar this summer.
