Kylian Mbappe to Real Madrid could actually be a "problem" for the Spanish giants, with the transfer proving more hassle than it's worth. 

Real Madrid are expected to complete the transfer of Mbappe in the coming months, with the Frenchman available for free after running his contract down at PSG. Los Blancos, though, will actually have to pay over £100m to convince Mbappe to the Bernabeu, with a hefty signing-on fee and huge wages required.
