Paris United, who first broke the news of Mbappe's move from Monaco to PSG, have claimed that Zinedine Zidane has 'requested' the 20-year-old.
@realmadrid will make a move for @KMbappe at the request of #Zidane, the club has a budget of €600M for this coming transfer window. Florentino Perez has guaranteed his coach a great window, while the father of Mbappé is in charge on the other side. #PSG— Paris United (@ParisUnitedEN) May 22, 2019
They also say that Mbappe's father is pushing for a move from the player's side.
Real Madrid apparently have €600 million to spend this summer, and aim to use a portion of that on Mbappe.
PSG's young star recently fuelled speculation during his acceptance speech for the Ligue 1 player-of-the-year.
“It’s a very important moment for me, I come to a turning point in my career,” he said.
“I have discovered a lot here, and I feel it is maybe the moment to have more responsibility.
“I hope that can perhaps be at Paris Saint-Germain, that would be a great pleasure. Or maybe elsewhere with a new project.”
Mbappe returned 38 goals and 17 assists in 2018/19 as PSG won Ligue 1.
