Is Monaco's Kylian Mbappe the best soccer player under 20?
Thursday August 24th, 2017

Paris Saint-Germain look to be in the driving seat to sign highly coveted teen sensation Kylian Mbappe before the transfer window closes after tabling an astronomical wage offer.

The French club have already signed Neymar for a world record £198m fee in the deal of the summer, but are intent on really laying down a marker by capturing world football's hottest prospect as well.

Mbappe, as reported by Sky's Kaveh Solhekol, has been offered a whopping £320k-a-week to join the revolution at the Parc des Princes, which blows Real Madrid's offer of £120k-a-week right out of the water.

Ligue 1 champions Monaco are becoming increasingly resigned to losing the 18-year-old, who set the football world alight last season with some of his performances - particularly in the Champions League.

L'Equipe say they enquired about having Julian Draxler come the other way as part of the potential deal, but the Germany international rejected it.

Le Parisien offer a more definitive take on the whole story, and claim that PSG will finalise the deal before the window closes next week - the fee in question being in the region of €150m.

If PSG get their man, it will have been an incredible transfer window for last year's Ligue 1 runners-up, who would be eyeing a return to domestic dominance as well as success in Europe.
