Real Madrid have denied they are in transfer talks with Paris St Germain forward Kylian Mbappe.
The French forward is set to leave PSG when his contract expires next summer, with the Bernabeu the expected destination.
But the LaLiga side played down reports that they had held some discussions with the World Cup winner.
The club’s statement read: “Due to information recently released and published by various media outlets speculating about alleged negotiations between the player Kylian Mbappe and our club Real Madrid C.F. wants to state that this information is clearly false and that no such negotiations have taken place with a player who belongs to PSG.”
The French side accepted a world-record £258m bid from Saudi Arabian side Al Hilal last month, but Mbappe rejected the offer.
