Real Madrid have been forced to rubbish “flatly false” rumors that they have agreed to a world-record contract with Paris Saint-Germain forward Kylian Mbappe.
The rebuff from Los Blancos comes 24 hours after denying a different report that says fellow PSG star Neymar is on his way to the Bernabeu.
Following weeks of conjecture, it was alleged in France overnight that a £239m contract had been reached between Madrid and PSG for Mbappe's signature.
A statement on the European champions' official website has poured cold water on these reports, however, with no offers being tabled for Mbappe.
“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,” the 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.”
Man United have also been credited with showing an interest in the 19-year-old, who cost PSG £166m to buy from rivals Monaco.
