Barely a week after signing Neymar in a world record transfer deal, Paris Saint-Germain seem to be on the verge of another major coup, this time in the form of AS Monaco's in-form Kylian Mbappe.
According to a report by Spanish publication Marca, PSG seemed to have pipped Real Madrid to Mbappe's signature for a fee around the $211 million mark.

Mbappe had a breakthrough second half of the season with Monaco, helping them win the French league and r.each the UEFA Champions League semifinal.
His performances saw him get linked with most of the major clubs in Europe with Real Madrid as the prime candidates to land the 18-year-old starlet.

But PSG may have upset the odds with their bid. While Monaco have maintained that he will not be sold, it will be interesting to see if they can turn down an offer this big.
PSG are also waiting on the arrival of Neymar's transfer certificate from Barcelona. The Catalan club are holding on to it till they can confirm the availability of the funds before sending the certificate, without which Neymar cannot be registered by Ligue 1 and subsequently play for his new employers.
