Italian League champions, Juventus are reportedly planning to initiate a bid for Paris Saint Germain star Kylian Mbappe.
The 20-year-old has been heavily linked with a move to join Real Madrid since Cristiano Ronaldo dumped Los Blancos this summer.
He was a phenomenon at the 2018 FIFA World Cup in Russia where he scored four goals and also won the title with his country in July 2018.
The youngster is branded the next world football superstar having won the World Cup at 20 the French domestic treble.
However, Football Italia reports that it would be difficult for the Old Lady to achieve their aim of signing the France international.
The French League giants are currently under investigation for allegedly breaching the Financial Fair Play rule – hence, they could be forced to sell one of Neymar or Mbappe this summer.
The Parisians could also lose their Champions League spot if found culpable of the offence been levied against them.
Meanwhile, Juve might have to cough out around €200 million for the youngster, given the French champions paid €180m to sign him from Monaco.
That would be double what the Bianconeri paid for Cristiano Ronaldo, which is already an Italian transfer record, which might force them to sell Paulo Dybala to fund the deal.
Mbappe has been crowned 2018 French player of the year after beating Raphael Varane and Antoine Griezmann to the prize.
The 20-year-old goal poacher played a key role in his country’s winning their second World Cup title in Russia this summer.
He scored four goals in seven appearances for Les Blues – two of which came against Argentina in the first knockout stage in the tourney.
